  • Fort Montagu's historic Fort that guards the port of Nassau, is a small Fort of four guns on the East coast of the island of New Providence. It was built in 1741 to defend the British possession by the Spanish invaders. Is close to the beach of the same name, is a little known by tourists and little Beach popular with locals, but ideal for a walk and admire the sea.

  • Historical site for locals and visitors. Great view of the Eastern end of Nassau and Paradise Island.
  • Historical Site and provides a great view of the port of Nassau .
  • Historical site located very close to Paradise Island but a little bit out of the way for cruise ship passengers that might be on foot. The fort is very small & cost was $3 for adults & $1 for children,however on the day my wife & I visited we were told the the fort was temporarily closed for repairs/renovation.
  • One of the oldest forts in Nassau Bahamas.
  • Beautiful & rich with culture
