Fort Rodney

Built in 1778, Fort Rodney offered a strategic view of the western approach, and all of Rodney Bay. Today, the fort is in ruins, but is a popular place for hikers to explore while on their journey in the Pigeon Island National Park.


While there are no official offerings at the fort, there is plenty of opportunities to explore the ruins and see the fantastic views from the walls that still exist.
