Breath-taking views

This was my first visit and it truly is a beautiful location especially for weddings, picnics or photo shoots. Just being able to go and absorb the view is a blessing. A must see.

views are absolutely stunning but please only visit in mid afternoon and do not go alone, unfortunately due to the crime both in Trinidad and overseas all potential thieves will see opportunities if you go alone

Very scenic. Breathtaking landscape of Scarborough and environs. There is a museum that catalogs the rich history of the island of Tobago.

Hill top fort a mountainous drive out of POS. Well maintained gardens and small garrison fort with cannons overlooking the port. Cooler than POS due to the altitude. Nice place for a walk or a picnic Dangerous to visit after dark

Do not miss this place if you are visiting T&T. It's a bit of a small hike up but the effort is totally worth it. A few historic buildings and a view that will leave you breathless. A must visit when in POS.
