Popular Attractions in Nassau, Bahamas

  • Queen's Staircase: The Queen's Staircase, often referred to as the “66 Steps,” is a major landmark in the city. This limestone staircase was constructed to honor Queen Victoria's help in the abolition of slavery in the Bahamas. Today the staircase is the centerpiece of a breathtaking tropical locale awash with swaying palms and powerful waterfalls. Stunningly exquisite both at dawn and dusk, the staircase becomes a quiet, cool, and romantic oasis when the moon shines down on the buzzing downtown areas and modern cruise ship docks.
  • Graycliff Cigar Company: Wandering into this cigar factory is like being transported to 1920s Cuba. In a narrow smoky room with the vibe of a speakeasy, decorated with old fashioned mosaic-tiled floors, cigar rollers — locally known as torcedores — are busy rolling hand-dried tobacco leaves into the most premium of stogies. Wander through this fascinating factory and take photos for free, or embark on a guided factory tour with a session of rum tasting for the perfect boozy end.
  • John Watling’s Distillery: Located on the historic Buena Vista Estate, John Watling’s Distillery is a taste of old Bahamas in the heart of Nassau. Offering panoramic views overlooking the harbor, the estate features centuries-old black olive trees spread across two acres of lushly green tropical gardens. Sample a tipple or two and taste the delicious barrel-aged rums that come in several varieties, as you embark on complimentary tours around the estate.
