A photogenic battery along a very scenic coast close to St. George's. A great place to stop for lunch or a break. We made a number of great photos of the parrot fish feeding a few metres from the shore.

The battery is interesting if for just a quick peek and to picture the guards trying to protect the island from this vantage points. However, the most interesting part is the attached little beach that has wonderful sea glass. The beach was trashy and had...More

Ok, we confess... while there is interesting history at the Battery, but we went for the small band of smoothly buffed sea glass that is on the tide line of the small nearby beach. I believe that there is considerably LESS sea glass on this...More

if you are in St. George area - be sure to check out this fort location. It's completely free and you need to explore everything by yourself. That said the exhibits offer plenty explanation to soak in some military history of Bermuda and the fort...More
