What to see in Nassau

As the balmy Bahamian breeze welcomes visitors stepping onto Nassau’s port, an enticing cocktail of experiences awaits.

Tucked away in a limestone quarry, just a brisk walk from the port, the Queen’s Staircase stands as an architectural testament to Nassau’s past. Carved by slaves in the late 18th century as a strategic military access route, this set of 66 steps was later named in honour of Queen Victoria, recognising her role in the abolition of slavery. As you ascend, the ambience is transformed. The surrounding walls, dripping with moisture, create a cool microclimate and the distant murmurs of city life give way to the gentle cascading of water from the adjacent waterfall. Upon reaching the top, Fort Fincastle, another historic gem, awaits exploration. From its vantage point, a panoramic view of Nassau unfolds, making the climb double rewarding.

A short stroll from the port leads you to the historic Buena Vista Estate, home to John Watling’s Distillery. Established in 1789 and named after a legendary pirate, this distillery offers an immersive journey into the world of Bahamian rum. Visitors are greeted by the colonial charm of the estate, complete with antique furnishings and artefacts that whisk one back to Nassau’s bygone era. Engage in guided tours that navigate the distillation process, from fermentation to ageing, all while unravelling the legacy of Bahamian rum-making. The tour culminates in the tasting room, where one can savour the distillery’s renowned rums. Whether you prefer the subtle notes of the pale rum or the robust flavours of the aged variety, the experience is a symphony of tastes. And, if rum’s not your elixir, the estate’s lush gardens and the on-site Red Turtle Tavern offer serene spots to relax.

The rhythmic sounds of bargaining, the vibrant splash of colours and the aroma of local species define Nassau’s iconic Straw Market. Located a heartbeat away from the port, this bustling bazaar is an ode to Bahamian artisanship. Traditionally, local artisans have crafted intricate baskets, hats and dolls from dried palm and sisal - and this tradition remains alive in the market today. Meander through the labyrinth of stalls, each offering unique handicrafts, jewellery and fabrics. Engage with the artisans and don’t miss out on sampling local delicacies from food vendors sprinkled throughout the market. This is not just a shopping destination, it’s an authentic immersion into Nassau’s cultural heart.
