Bahamas for the beautiful tropical environment and dazzling beaches, the historical landmarks in the region provide a memorable opportunity to explore the nation's history.

Definitely check out Fort Charlotte after you spent a sufficient amount of time lounging on the beach, shopping for souvenirs and jewelry, and sipping countless Bahama Mamas. This fort is a great contribution to Bahamian history and it offers an amazing view of downtown Nassau and the cruise port.
