5. Queen’s Staircase

The Queen’s Staircase, also known as ‘The 66 Steps’, is on Nassau Island. It was carved out of solid limestone rock by slaves between 1793 and 1794 to make a shortcut from Fort Fincastle to Nassau.

Fun fact: the pathway to the stairs was paved over, so you can only see 65 steps.

6. Parliament Square

The flamingo-pink buildings on Parliament Square are ideal for Insta. They’re excellent examples of the colonial architecture of old Nassau.

Official meetings are still held here by local government. Have you ever seen a prettier building?
