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
Great photo opportunity and neat to learn about the history of New Providence (Nassau) and it's people. Great story behind the significance of the 66 steps. Absolutely recommend a stop by, especially if you can have a guide drop you off at the top and pick you up at the bottom! 🤣
The Queen's Staircase was absolutely beautiful! We met a gentleman who is known around the area as The Historical Oracle. He shared a lot of information with us about the Stairs and the area. If he happens to be there when you visit, give him a moment of your time (and a tip!). We were very happy that we made the walk to the Queen's Staircase.
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.
This is a very interesting and unique site ,rich with history and very beautiful! Make sure to inform yourself a little before you go. One of the good places to see in Nassau.
Pretty cool place. From what I remember it was built by slaves and took like 16 years I think. It was really cool to see.
