Got here right before closing, and they gave us a quick tour of the property. Everyone was very nice, and it was great to see some history of the island.

This was a 15 minute stop on a bus tour so didn't have time to enter or explore properly which sadly, I feel, probably doesn't do the property justice. We had just enough time to walk to the entrance and back and then browse the over priced souvenirs at basic stalls in the car park. I did notice with interest... More

Although not as spectacular as El Morro in San Juan Puerto Rico, it is still worth a walk-through. The views of the coast and cruise ships in the distance are worth a couple of pics. Very hot during the days (especially in the summer) but they sell cold bottled water for $1. Ramps and stairs (as one would expect) are... More

Short walk to the fort, the price is only about two dollars. You can easily spend a hour walking around the fort and reading the descriptions and history. Even has some people dressed up in clothing of the period.

This was cool to visit with the children! Great historical value! The view from the top was also amazing! It's a quick self guided tour, but worth the visit!

OMG!! This is a fort!!! I taught 4th grade in Florida for 10 years. I have visited the fort in St. Augustine for 11 years: 10 with my classroom and once with my daughter's class! I always thought the fort in St. Augustine, Florida was big. NOT! This fort was breath-taking! The view from the top of the fort was... More

We visited this fort along with many others on our recent trip to Nassau. It is the largest fort and the one with the most to see. A guide will take you on a tour for tips but you must pay a small amount to get in. They take US money and give change.

If you're going to Queen's Staircase, you should do this too. As a history person, the information you get makes it worth it.
