Built in 1612 in wood, and finished with stone two years later, this early fort was meant to protect the small Barbados colony. It would be rebuilt five time to include new improvements and stronger features, though today it serves as a museum and historic attraction.

Staying Close

You may enjoy staying in St. George's Island if you plan on visiting Fort St. Catherine, as visitors to this region of Bermuda will be excited to have easy site access for the duration of their trip. You can expect little traffic surrounding this historic site, especially as there are very few hotels in the vicinity.

Location and What's Nearby

Recreational opportunities like working on one's golf game and beach-going are also widely available in the vicinity. Vacationers with an interest in showing their proficiency on the green, will want to do so at the closest golfing option, which is Tucker's Point. If playing a few rounds of golf doesn't excite you, think about checking out St. Catherine's Beach, one of the closest beaches to this landmark. However, while these options may be the most convenient to access, there will still be a variety of equally enjoyable outdoor options. Guests will find a fair number of indoor attractions within a reasonable distance. For those not wanting to have to travel a great distance, there are another pair of alluring attractions close by--Unfinished Church and Sommers Garden.
