Kind of hard to get to, once there it is a sign and some cannons. Appreciate the history of it but ultimately will take about 10 minutes of time to see :-)

The easy climb to the sight of the old fort was well worth the effort and very achievable in your own time. The views from the top were good those from just before the top were even better. With just a few cannon remaining it is the view you walk to see not the fort.

We went to this location on a tour. It was nice but it takes about three minutes of time. It is Ok. But don't go out of your way to see it.

We drove up to the ....fort? There was a low wall about 20 feet long with 5 canons. There was no information. The drive was treacherous to just see 5 canons. The view was very good of the harbor inlet. I guess that why they put the canons up there.

Hamilton Fort is one of the best spots on Bequia to view the entire harbour and the Belmont walkway including Belmont beach, Princess Margaret beach and Lower bay. Getting there may be a bit challanging if in a taxi as you could be bounced around as it navigates the rough road or your cross country driving skills tested if driving... More

Nothing really here except 5 old cannons. Nice views of Admiralty Bay and a little gazebo to stay cool under especially with the winds. A quick stop but nothing more.

Although the fort was very small, the view from up there was awesome. You can see a large bit of the island as well as far out to sea. Great if you love taking photos
