Fort Charlotte, Nassau

(3.5/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Take a tour of Fort Charlotte, the largest of three forts in Nassau. Colonial governor Lord Dunmore had it constructed in 1789. Named after Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III, the fort never saw a battle. Today, you can explore the fortress walls, underground tunnels, cannons, and dungeons. Frequently, local actors dress up as characters from the time period, act out scenes, or sell handmade baskets and utensils. Make Fort Charlotte a centerpiece of your Nassau vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Nassau trip itinerary planner.

  • Interesting Fort and memorial to the island's Colonial past. Was especially interested in the 17th century graffiti scratched into the stone by the Royal Marine garrison. Good views out over the bay and surrounding lands.
  • Great place to see views of Nassau from the top of the fort. Tour guides are very knowledgeable and the tour is interesting. The grounds are well kept, there are public restrooms and a place to purchase some water or snacks.
  • Great for cultural events
