Landmark Nassau Harbour Lighthouse Mar 25, 2010
The famous lighthouse at the entrance to Nassau Harbour is one of the most recognizable and photographed landmarks in Nassau. The lighthouse is also known also as Paradise Island Light or Hog Island Light. (Hog Island was renamed to the more appealing Paradise Island in the 1960s as resorts began to be built there.)

Nassau Harbour Lighthouse was constructed about 1816/1817 and is the oldest operating lighthouse in the West Indies. Although the lighthouse is only 69 feet (21 m) above sea level, it is one of the first objects sighted when arriving at Nassau by sea.

The lighthouse can easily be viewed when arriving or leaving Nassau by cruise ship or small craft. There are no tours and the only land access would be to hike over to it from Colonial Beach on Paradise Island. But, it can be seen from nearly any point in Nassau that has a view of the harbor.

Nassau, Bahamas Lighthouse Feb 02, 2009
Cruising into the port of Nassau, Bahamas was this lighthouse.

This photo was taken in about 2003.

The whiteness of this lighthouse was magnificent against the turquoise water of the Bahamas! I did not see it at night to know if it actually functioned as a lighthouse, but it sure was lovely to see by day.

From other photos I have seen online, it is one of the most photographed landmarks of Nassua with the exception, perhaps, of the Atlantis Hotel and Cassino.

I am not aware of any tours out to this lighthouse, but it appears that one can access it by way of jetski or fishing boat. I passed it quickly enough not to observe any activity on the small island, but I didn't notice any barriers around it.
