We stopped here for about 15 minutes during our tour of the island. The gentleman there was very knowledgeable about the fort and how it played a role in Nassau's history. It was worth the stop.

Fort Montagu is located on a very nice stretch of beach in Nassau. We enjoyed our visit. There was a guide who told us the history of the fort and really added to our enjoyment of the attraction.

Fort Montagu is an excellent tourist landmark that is a popular stop for tour guides. Also a very nice beach for locals and tourists. Many sailing regattas and festivals are held at this location during the summer months.

I had a great vacation in Paradise Island, Bahamas. I went on a tour to see Fort Montagu in Nassau. Fort Montagu is a small fort with four cannons. It's purpose at the time was to defend the British from Spanish invaders.
