The view is good...and that's it. To get there you need to endure many so-called tour guides and merchants. It is a total rip off before you get away from there.

One of the best things to do in Nassau, with great views over the island, Paradise Island and ships. Quite a small fort but you can go inside and can climb ups for views. Only costs $1 entry fee
