Fort Charlotte is the largest and most interesting of the three forts found in Nassau. Built in 1789 by Lord Dunmore and named in honor of the wife of King George III.This fort has never fired a shot in Battle. It includes a water-less moat, draw-bridge, ramparts and dungeons. Fort Charlotte commands a fine view of Nassau Harbor.
Arawak Cay offers the authentic atmosphere of the Bahamian “Fish Fry” with vendors selling “made to order” conch salad, fried fish and other Bahamian dishes.
Arawak Cay was artificially built from the sand when the harbor was dredged in 1969.
There is a Police Station, a storytelling porch for special events, an old Bahamian rock oven, an open stage and an open grassy area with seating for the audience where concerts and other productions are held. Sunday nights is when the majority of locals can be seen at Arawak Cay or “Fish Fry” as the locals would say.
