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.

Location and What's Nearby

Opportunities for some fun in the sun like hitting a few rounds of golf and heading to the beach will also be found easily and are within close proximity. Visitors who will enjoy testing their proficiency around the green, will be able to do so at the closest golfing facility, which is Mid Ocean Golf Club. If playing a few rounds of golf doesn't excite you, consider spending some time at Paget Island Beach, the most convenient beach to visit. However, while these options may be the most convenient to access, you'll still have access to a good selection of equally enjoyable recreation options. You will encounter a fair number of indoor places to visit in this general area. For those not wanting to have to travel a great distance, there are another pair of nearby places you may want to check out--Little Head Park and Great Head Park.



The fort is located in a public park, and is therefor free.
