Queen's Staircase - Review
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.

Queen's Staircase, Nassau Reviews
A beautiful, historical landmark in Nassau. Definitely a must see in Nassau if you are a history buff or if you just love nature. I only wish there was more to it! Could walk through it for hours. Make sure you get a picture taken by the waterfall, it's beautiful! And it's definitely worth the wait to get a picture of the staircase when no one is on it.
Cool free attraction to get the real feel of the island. If you want to know the culture and stay away from tourist traps, this is worth it. Take a few dollars to tip the historian at the top and look carefully for the opening from the fort.
We walked up from the cruise ship and were very glad we did. We happened to come across a local who was a wealth of knowledge at the base of the channel to the stairwell. He gave us at least 15 minutes of great history on the island, the people and the site. A good way to walk off some of that all you can eat and drink cruise ship lifestyle...
Amazing and wonderful location with a fantastic story behind it. There was a man working there telling the story with the same name as me! We quickly became friends and adoptive brothers. The history and passion that the locals have for this spot in particular is inspiring. Be sure to tip the people that work in these places though, as they make most of their income that way. The local Bahamians are incredibly friendly and understand that their well being depends on tourists even if they don’t directly interface with them. For those that don’t know the staircase was essentially hewn out of the earth as a path for those who had taken over the island as a means of escape. When the Bahamians were eventually viewed as free people by the Queen she quickly become a beloved figured to the Bahamians. The path was initially just a steep incline but after the Queen died the Bahamians made the staircase in her honor.
This is a must see. There were a few men who were giving out information but of course wanted a tip like anywhere in the Bahamas. If you're interested in the history it would be worth it to tip them to hear the facts. Super shady and beautiful. Would highly reccomend.
