Queen’s Staircase

Descending history

Save to my Account

On a hot day in Nassau, this is one of the “coolest” places to be. Its lush beauty alone makes it a must-see, but history adds to the intrigue.

Eighteenth-century slaves originally carved 66 steps and a road out of this chunk of limestone as an escape route for Fort Fincastle above.

Today, it has been worn down to 65 steps, and waterfalls and verdant greenery make it a picturesque as well as good chillin’ spot. Most combine it with a visit to the fort. It’s on the agenda of every city and cruise-ship tour, so it can get a little crowded.
