Inexpensive entry price gives access to the fort. Great view of Nassau and the harbor. We took a taxi to the Queens Staircase and climbed up, the fort is just around the corner from the top. Vendors are also near the fort if you need...More

One of the best things to do in Nassau, with great views over the island, Paradise Island and ships. Quite a small fort but you can go inside and can climb ups for views. Only costs $1 entry fee

Great views of the city, rich history of the place. Make sure to bring your camera and a great attitude as it can be a bit hot during the day. Overall, a great place to visit.

We visited Fort Fincastle after seeing the Queen's Staircase. It was ~$1.00 entrance fee per person. It's a small fort, but good for a quick visit. They have people there giving some informational talks to give a bit of history behind the fort.
