Really neat!

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!

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.

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.

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic vacation in Paradise Island, Bahamas. We went on a nice tour to see Fort Charlotte in Nassau.

This is a short tour of an interesting bit of Bahama history. It is the highest point on the island and offers some nice views.

We went to Fort Charlotte on a day we were in port on a cruise. This is an easy walk from the port (took about 20 minutes with several kids in tow). Guides were friendly and informative (you're not required to take a guided tour, and we didn't, but didn't feel pressured to do so in any way). The entry... More

Family and I visited here. Admission was good, about a dollar/person. Guided tour was good and tour guide was very informative. Self guided the rest of the fort. The most interesting thing to be was the historical "graffiti" engraved into the inner walls by soldiers stationed there many years ago. Great family adventure and place to visit while in Nassau.
