Outdoor Activities

Fort Barrington is perched atop Goat Hill in the Five Islands area and was built in the late 18th century to guard the entrance to St. John's Harbour. A short trek up to this towering fort offers breathtaking panoramic views of the bright blue ocean, the many moored vessels in the harbor and the surrounding hills and valleys in the distance. Not much of this historic site remains but the splendid views make a visit here a must when in the city.
