This is one of those fascinating places that give us a sense of the history and heritage of the country. It is "real", and a very different experience from the commercial Pirates' Museum. It is true that the ruin itself is crumbling, but a little imagination can take you a long way back into the days of Blackbeard himself. It is easy to see how he could have lured ships onto the coral.
The major drawback is your personal safety. Nassau is a very safe and friendly place, but the tower is in a remote area with no protection from modern day pirates. A tourist exploring on his or her own may be relieved of things like watches and wallets. If you decide to explore this site, do so only in a group, the larger the better. The tower used to be shown on tourist maps but is now difficult to find. Tourists are not encouraged to visit. For a similar, but safer, experience you can go to the replica at Blue Lagoon. Having said that, I have to admit that I'm glad I have seen the original.
