I liked the fort. It was just a couple of Dollars for entrance and there is nothing really special inside but you have a great few from up there. There is some information about the fort and it's history inside which is pretty interesting. Also once a day they have this show. I think it's some kind of "changing of the guards" sort of thing. Which is also pretty interesting to watch. They whirl around their guns in style ;) and the whole thing ends in (fake) cannon shot. It was pretty cool =D
A great view of the island but not much more. Only 3$ to enter and a short walk from the port so an easy place to visit if you are on a cruise ship. Be sure to visit the Queen's Staircase beforehand (the easiest way to Fort Fincastle is actually through the Queen's Staircase which is free to visit)
There were great views of the surrounding area and it is only a short distance from the Queens Staircase. There is an entry fee to enter the fort. We had walked to the fort from our cruise ship and it was not that far of a hike. The fort is surrounded by older homes and some stores as well as a water tower that used to be open to the public but is now closed from tours. It is worth the hike just to see the breathtaking views of the entire island.
Great location (and history!) and within walking distance to cruise ship docks should you have the time and in good fitness. Visitors are typically not encouraged to explore alone but with a 'guide' (which may be unofficial), but still informative none-the-less. Expect to pay a tip.
We stumbled across this location while exploring the queens staircase. For $3 we were allowed inside and I thought it was pretty cool. The views were excellent and they had some awesome canons you could explore. The video history screen was broken sadly so we didn't get a chance to check that out. Over all, it's worth a stop if you are spending a day or afternoon walking around Nassau.
I enjoy visiting old forts no matter where they are at. Make sure to bring a camera and catch a picture or two of the awesome views. Walking shoes recommended.
The fort was nice and had signs with information. There was a small entrance fee of 3$ and they sell cold bottled water for $1 I think. We had a man who I'm not sure if he worked there talking with us and then asked for a tip, he did have good information. But everybody here seems to want a tip. Just be prepared.
This was a small fort, but very well preserved. A short walk from the top of the Queen's Staircase and a small entry fee.
