“Bahamian History”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Not much too see however, it is right next to the Queens Staircase. Only cost $1 which supports the upkeep. Nice peace of history to learn.

“Well Worth the Walk From the Cruise Ship Pier”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

It's only a 10-15 minute walk from the cruise ship pier to the Queen's Staircase and Fort Fincastle, both of which are interesting and fun to visit. The fort admission fee is just $1 and we spent a good 20-30 minutes exploring the 3 rooms and enjoying the view from the top. Plus it was a fun walk!

“For the view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Any visitor in Nassau has to go there for the view . The fort itself is o.k. , worth the admission fee of $1 but the main reason to go there is the view of the city and the port !
If you go there by car , have a look at the Queen's Staircase about 150 meters from the parking area

“Not worth a stop!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

It is only $1 to get in but, not worth it. It is a very rundown fort. You walk in, turn around, and walk out. Our tour guide literally told us two facts about the fort and then said we were welcome to tip him. Sorry guy, not today. Walk down the road and go to the Queen's Staircase instead of coming here.

“OK!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

It was OK. Beware of shaky neighborhood. Our family used a rental car to visit the place late afternoon. There is few things to see. The businesses were closed after 4 PM and nobody walked in the town. We didn't feel safe so we returned the car near our cruise. You may visit in the morning with a group. The beaches were clean and excellent. It may not be safe at night.
