Most people will take time out(I hope) to visit Fort George but this is on the higher ground above St George's on the islands ridge. The benefit is that you can see both sides of the Southern part of Grenada so great views. There are all the usual touristy spots selling stuff and in our case a steel band playing...
Great to get up here for the surrounding views, but apart from that not much else to see in the grounds. Morning time is probably best time to visit. Next door is Fort Matthew (short walk away downhill) which is/was basically a small military barracks which is very run down, over-grown in parts & uncared for
I preferred Fort George...
Went to visit this fort and were surprised to see there was no fee on the gate (low season) but pleased to be able to enter the fort never the less to read about it's history, see the fort and view over St. George's.
Good visit for families though be careful with young children as it isn't particularly 'safe'.
If you want the best views (my opinion) of Grenada go up to Fort Frederick. Amazing views from up there. Be sure to talk to people to get the history of the fort and the "hospital" near by and the great stories you will hear will give you those kind of memories you travel for.
Fort Frederick was the first stop on the Sunsation Tours Southern Flavours tour and is interesting for the views of the island. There is a little shop and toilets and information boards.
As it is high up there is a nice breeze on a warm day.
Our tour guide was very informative which made the trip more interesting.
You have the possibility to check two views of the island from this place. 5 EC$ as entry plus you get a 10 minute guide... you can not get in without paying. Not worth its price. Go to Ft. George instead.
