That was a lot of steps.... So there is this guy at the top of the stairs who gives a very lively explanation of the area and the reasoning behind the steps. I stayed with him... climbing down and then back up to the ATV...More

It looked quite impressive both at top and down at bottom. My husband walked down the steps and took photos. Because it looked steep from the top took our tour bus down to bottom.

This is an absolutely beautiful part of the Bahamas. The unique history adds to its beauty. Take the family to this one, but make sure you go in the entrance to go up the steps, not down. The waterfall is so beautiful.

A must see if you go to Nassau. The Water Tower and Fort Fincastle are just steps away from the staircase as well. Local vendors are lined up with their merchandise on the pathway. Knock out 3 popular sights in one stop!

According to the port guide it is a 7 minute walk up to see the Queen's Staircase. Traffic can be a bit erratic if you're not used to drivers on the other side( right, wrong ) of the road. Nice walk. There's a fort on...More

Very nice historic spot for taking pictures and keeping cool. Our tour guide told us the history of the stairs and as we walked down them we where surrounded by green plants with a nice little waterfall that added to the ambiance.

Maybe 15 minute walk....is a bit uphill from the cruise terminal but nothing major. Be prepared to be a bit underwhelmed. It’s really nothing spectacular to be honest.

Yes, you can walk it. Get a free city map when you depart the ship. It's only a few streets from the port.
