Fort & Water Tower, Nassau: 37 reviews and 93 photos


The 126 foot high Water Tower is built next to Fort Fincastle on one of the highest points in Nassau along the Prospect Ridge. It was built in 1928 to maintain water pressure on the island. It is possible to climb up inside (there's 216 steps!) or do what nearly everyone else does and that's to take the elevator which costs 50 cents. The views from the top are wonderful as you can see all of downtown Nassau, the Atlantis hotel on Paradise Island, the huge cruise ships in Prince George Wharf and even the hotels along Cable Beach.
