I read the reviews before going to Nassau last week and thought that these buildings would be a highlight of our time in port. Boy was I wrong. Honestly, they're cool to look at since they're so bright, and a good photo opportunity, but not something that really impressed me overall. I walked around the buildings and felt like they... More

Impressive square with pink and white Bahamian colors and architecture. The place is in the center of Nassau and offers a glimpse of its history through the years.

This past cruise season we stopped in Nassau for a brief shopping visit. Having been there before on more then one occasion we found it less then what we hoped for. The shops are either super high end or tourist things to buy, bring home and let sit on a sideboard and gather dust. Nothing changes except the natives attempting... More

But don't miss these buildings as they are a truly fabulous reminder of the Bahamas Colonial past. Cute, small, perfectly formed as befits a cute, small perfectly... More

Amazing, Georgian-style buildings from the late 1700's and painted hot pink.. Welcome to the Bahamas! Beautiful statue of young Queen Victoria in front and several old cannons on the sides. Great photo op spot but not much else to do in the Square. Close to lots of shops and restaurants. Definitely worth seeing.

My husband, I and kids age 10 and 7 explored Nassau on foot. We first walked to Queen's Staircase at 8 am, not hot, not crowded. Take Bay St, then Elizabeth St and when it ends that's the beginning of the Queen's Staircase, just keep walking past the road end/metal barricade. Walk is slightly uphill there and downhill back (bring... More

Close to the shopping area are well preserved colonial buildings in bright colours. They are worth viewing. If you have some time, wander the side streets around that area as it gives one a good feel of Nassua in the past!

We came upon the square by accident. We wanted to go to Alexander Platz but stopped off at the wrong stop. We did not regret it though. We were impressed with the architecture of the buildings and how they were located in one area. Germany is a really organized place..
