Fort Popple

When the new governor of Bermuda arrived in 1738 and found all the forts under maintained, he ordered a massive renovation of the island's defenses. Fort Popple was one of the new small forts built. Today, the majority of the site is in ruins, being abandoned long ago.


The general public are free to explore the area around the fort, though there are a few extra restrictions about entering the fort itself, and you will likely be unable to.

Staying Close

Location and What's Nearby

Spry guests may likely be taken in by the region because of the options for open-air options. Visitors interested in showing their skills on the green, can do so at the closest golfing facility, which is Mid Ocean Golf Club. Many hours can also be filled with time at Paget Island Beach, the closest beach. Even though the options above are the easiest to get to, you'll still have access to an impressive spread of similar outdoor possibilities. You will find plenty of other local attractions in this general vicinity. There are a pair of other places nearby you may want to visit -Little Head Park and Great Head Park- each of them located rather close to the historic site.
