It has a great view of Nassau downtown and ships by it. I would recommend use to use the queens staircase to get to the fort.
If you are coming by car park near the hospital and walk up the stairs which is the easiest way to get to the fort on foot. The way to the fort is lined with vendors selling the usual tourist memorabilia so be prepared. The fort is a small building but you do get a guide a knowledgeable guide for... More
Tip: we had conque fritters in one of the stalls around the fort. We paid $5 for 8 conque fritters. They were good. The good thing about the fort is that you can have good views over the city. There is a $1 fee. Be aware of the guys at the entrance that follow you to get a tip.
The fort itself is smaller than Fort Charlotte. The area is cramped with almost no parking available. Best way there is parking by the hospital and walking up the Queens Staircase. The water tower was shut on the day I visited. Large amount of vendor stands, all selling the same thing. There are two restaurants/bars at the top of the... More
The site is poorly maintained which is surprising considering him many visitors they get here each year. The surrounding walkways are crowded with vendors peddling their works, same stuff in each shop. You could easily cover this site in 30 minutes max, if you are here for only one day like on a cruise stick to the beach/ocean or atlantis.
Even taking your time you only need 10 mnutes to see the fort and we felt there could have been more information about the history. One of the internal rooms had the power out so we couldn't see anything. However, the shape of the building is unique and interesting for that, and there are great views across the whole island...

It is worth it to walk here to see this & the nearby Queen's Staircase. The displays explaining what you see are minimal. If you cannot make it to here, reading about it is enough. We had time & enjoyed the walk here. We spent about 10 minutes actually here though. The views of the island are fairly good here.
It's a dollar to get in, and you get a very brief history of the place and more time pointing out the different buildings you can see from the top. It did give a great view of the harbor and the cruise ships, as well as Atlantis. Its at the top of the queens staircase so if you do one,... More
The view is great but the fort is tiny and not really what I had expected or think of when I hear the word "Fort". I wouldn't make a special trip to visit but if you are passing/in the area it's probably worth a visit.
