Fodor's Expert Review Queen's Staircase

Nassau Historical

A popular early-morning exercise regime for locals, “the 66 Steps” (as Bahamians call them) are thought to have been carved out of a solid limestone cliff by slaves in the 1790s. The staircase was later named to honor Queen Victoria's reign. Pick up some souvenirs at the ad hoc straw market along the narrow road that leads to the site.
