Cabrits National Park

Located on a scenic peninsula just north of Portsmouth, this park is best known as the site of Fort Shirley, a large 18th-century British garrison that housed 600 soldiers. Some of the fort’s stone ruins have been partially reconstructed; others are half-hidden in the jungle and are fun to explore.

This vast national park actually encompasses the peninsula, the surrounding coast (complete with coral reefs), and the island’s largest swamp. Exploring the ruins of the Officer’s Quarters will afford you some very fine views of Prince Rupert Bay.
