The Queen’s Staircase leads to the Fort Fincastle and was carved out from a single limestone rock by slaves in the late 18th century. The stone that was carved out was used to construct the fort itself. The 65 step staircase , even though only a small pit-stop while sightseeing around the city, is one of the underrated yet beautiful sights in Nassau and is named after Queen Victoria.
What truly is special about this single rock staircase is the sheer history, the timeless construction and the view that surrounds the place. Come here to take a selfie or to simply sit on the steps while you take a breather from the walk to the fort.

Interesting place! The rich history that this place holds. The fact that slaves carved out the stairs is AWESOME! 65 stairs and very steep! I stayed at the top as you can see.
Beautiful ! If you visit from a Cruise ship- be sure to grab taxi and go see this. I thought it very picturesque! This is a very steep and tall set of stairs! You really can't see it of you can't do stairs- i don't mean you have to be in great physical shape, but your knees need to work! Looks just like the postcard pictures *****- memorable! 😎
Really cool hidden gem in Nassau. Just a few short minutes from the port by foot. Definitely worth a visit.
This was pretty neat. Our tour guide told us the story behind the steps. Once we walked down, it was very cool. It is very easy to walk down the steps also.
Absolutely beautiful! The tropical jungle atmosphere that seems to be missing in New Providence can be found only here walking along the staircase. The guide at the top of the stairs provides interesting history of the staircase.
