7 Things to See or Visit in Nassau
While there are guided tours that will take you to some of Nassau’s top attractions, it’s sometimes fun to explore on your own. This gives you more flexibility to wander and take it all in. However, there are some things to see that every visitor needs to visit at least once.
- Atlantis is known for its waterpark, but this nearby resort has more to offer. Say hello to the animals that call the marine habitats home. Visit The Dig to see the Lost City of Atlantis, or come face-to-face with sharks as you walk through a 100-foot underwater tunnel.
- The 66 steps of the Queen’s Staircase were carved by 600 enslaved people between 1793 and 1794. Part of the Fort Fincastle Historic Complex, they were later named in honor of Queen Victoria.
- Clifton Heritage National Park is worth the journey. Located on the western end of the island, it is home to remnants of three important groups: the Africans, the Loyalists, and the Lucayans. Learn more on a heritage tour.
- Take your photo in front of the pink buildings that make up Parliament Square. The downtown Nassau area features several historically significant buildings, including the House of Assembly and The Supreme Court of The Bahamas.
- Built in 1741 to ward off Spanish invaders, Fort Montague is found at the eastern end of Nassau Harbor. Here, you’ll also find Montagu Beach, a popular spot to soak in the sun.
- Explore exhibits filled with historic and contemporary art inside the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas. The museum works to provide a unique look at Bahamian culture and history through art.
- The Pompey Museum of Emancipation and Slavery is found inside Vendue House, a marketplace until the late 1800s. Once the site of slave auctions, the spot now houses a museum dedicated to the study of slavery.
