I was amazed at how well-guarded the coast in Tobago was during the colonial times. Fort George was a force to be reckon with. The view is beautiful and the history is amazing.

Great view above sea level looking over Port of Spain! You'll be blown away by the view; Venezuela is off in the distance on a clear visible day.

The road to Fort George is narrow so drive carefully! Once there you will enjoy an amazing view! Great place to come with family and friends and have a little picnic.

This Fort over.ooks the expansive city of Port of Spain. An incredible photo op. Don’t miss the French antiques inside the museum with its historical reconstruction of the Fort and Port of Spain.

Travel the winding road uphill to a location worth the visit. Great place for picture taking with city and ocean views of all angles. Best going with company as can often be quiet and lonely.
