Welcome to
Fort Kyk-Over-Al

A brick arch on a grassy island on the Essequibo River is the only remaining part of the Dutch fort that kept other European enemies at bay. Kyk-Over-Al translates to ’see over all’ in Dutch, referencing the expansive view of the entire riverfront from this spot. Stand here and let your imagination take you back in time, when Dutch soldiers would have intensely guarded this region. Now, only a handful of travellers visit for photo-ops.
