The Cabrits

cabrits-smThe Cabrits National Park includes natural coastal forest, a marine park and the remains of an historic 18th century garrison. Trails take you past the remains of military buildings that have become entwined by giant roots.

At Fort Shirley, the centre piece of the park, years of careful restoration has recreated the fortifications so that visitors can get a taste of what the world of Caribbean pirates and naval combat was like in the days of Sir Francis Drake, Sir John Hawkins, Prince Rupert and Horatio Nelson; all of whom once anchored in this beautiful bay.
