This very old cemetery is in a very precarious place, so near the ocean in the park that you have to wonder how the hurricanes of the past haven't swallowed this up. A great place to reflect and listen to the waves crash the shoreline.

interesting thing to see all these graves above ground overlooking the sea. You can go in the cemetery if you're into that kind of thing.

This ocean facing cemetery reminded me of the one on Bronte beach in Sydney. It is a beautiful place to take a stroll en route to the old fort. Incredible views and windswept beach.

Without a doubt this is a very old cemetery. I know it sounds odd but you should visit to see the beautiful stones and architecture.

We thoroughly enjoyed walking through the above ground graves with artistic monuments and markers. The view of the ocean from there is breathtaking, with both forts in sight. The professional sculptures and renderings are breathtaking. Highly recommend a visit here.

You don’t get to see a beach front cemetery every day right? So take advantage of this beautiful cemetery and take tons of pictures.

Walking through the old cemetery filled with beautiful head stones dating back a hundred years. Grave robbers had certainly visited the site prior to my visit, with concrete covers moved off the graves revealing the occupant within. It is a special place by the sea...More

I thought it would be strange going to visit a cemetery. So glad I went. The statues are amazing. It’s so peaceful with just the sound of the ocean.

Yes it is a short walk from the terminal, however when we arrived by cruise ship, there was a shuttle bus that would take you to old town and the walk is only about 5 minutes.
