Fort Charlotte

If you like historical forts, see this one. It is by far the largest and covers 100 acres. Located on a hill overlooking the far west end of the harbour, Fort Charlotte commands an impressive view of Paradise Island, Nassau and the harbour - although all the land in front of it is reclaimed now.

Built in 1788 by Lord Dunmore the fort was named after the wife of King George III, Queen Saharia Charlotte. This fort has a moat, dungeons, underground passageways and 42 cannons, which have never been fired in an act of aggression. It is one mile west of downtown Nassau, just off West Bay Street. 

There is a fee for admission.
