Little fort at the end of the road May 30, 2014
The fort is located at the eastern part of Nassau a bit out of the center - so it is outside the area where the cruise ships passengers usually makes it to. Hence there are a pretty good change you will be the only foreigner out here sharing the area with a few locals and their food trucks.

The fort is very small so if you want to go here it should mainly be to get away from the cruise ship passengers and the shops they frequent during their short visit. There are a few other stops in this area of the city which you can go to at the same time as your stop at the fort. Across the street is a nice local restaurant which is of better quality than the average place in the center since they have to carter to repeat customers unlike the places in the center.

Supposedly you can go inside the fort to see what it is like on the inside - but despite we were there during the official opening hours the fort was closed so we could only walk around it from the outside - which didn’t take long. Around the fort there is a couple of beaches which is very quite with only a few locals swimming of the beach so if you are looking for a quite swim it can be easily combined with the fort.

There is a bus driving to and from the fort but the bus routes in Nassau are a bit strange so the drive to the fort will only take about 5 minutes while the drive away from the fort takes more than an hour since the bus crisscross through most of the outskirts of Nassau. The distance from the center to the fort is walkable so if you like to walk only one way your best option will be to take the bus out there and walk back along the north shore of the island.
