Nassau Water Tower
Nassau Attractions

Adjacent to Fort Fincastle is a 126-foot (38.5 meters) tall water tower which provides incredible views of Nassau, the harbor and Atlantis resort on Paradise Island. Built in 1928, the tower was used to maintain water pressure for Nassau. From Festival Place at Nassau's cruise port, take East Street to Prison Lane. Nassau walking map


The water tower is well worth visiting, but it's not always open. When it is, you can climb the stairs to the top or take a small elevator for a tiny fee. Go for the elevator.

Supposed to be open daily 8am-5pm. Contacts: (242) 322-2442.

Be aware that some of the sellers at Fort Fincastle and The Water Tower can be a bit pushy. Simply saying "I'm only looking, not buying" sometimes helps.


Leaving The Water Tower, you are only a few steps from another attraction, The Queen's Staircase, located on your left.
