The Caves of Nassau
Be sure to make your way to the Caves of Nassau while on your Bahamas vacation. Various groups of people have used these magnificent natural caverns throughout the history of the island. Nassau’s earliest settlers, the Lucayans, took advantage of the natural protection from the elements and optimal temperature of the caves for storing food. Similar to the Lucayans, pirates would use the caves as a hideout and location to guard their loot. Remains and artifacts from both groups have been discovered in the remarkable island formations. Visit the Caves of Nassau for a close-up view of this fantastic part of Bahamas history.
Another historical Nassau site worth experiencing is Fort Montagu, located just ten minutes away from Paradise Island Beach Club. This fortified stone structure dates back to 1741, making it the oldest of three forts situated on Nassau. Fort Montagu was made from the island limestone to defend the British controlled island from Spanish troops. In 1776, the fort was captured by American forces in hopes of utilizing the various supplies and gunpowder in the American Revolutionary War. The British, however, had seen this coming and the fort was near empty upon the troops’ arrival. Climb up the weathered stronghold and take in the beautiful harbor view before enjoying a picnic on Montagu Beach.
The Queen’s Staircase
The final Nassau must-see on our list is the Queen’s Staircase. This island landmark is a human-made passage constructed in the early 1700s connecting Fort Fincastle (the highest point on Nassau) to the rest of the Island. Six hundred slaves were forced to carve the limestone hillside by hand, which took nearly sixteen years to finish. This important part of Bahamas history was named ‘The Queen’s Island’ in the 1800s to honor Queen Victoria, who aided in abolishing slavery during her time as British royalty.
