Visitors climbing up the Man-O-War Tower in Duncan Town, Ragged Island, The Bahamas

Located on the highest point of the island, it is approximately three-quarter miles from Duncan Town in the southeast, on the same side as the salt ponds. There is a light to guide boaters coming in from the east, which was initially used to illuminate the well fields around the holding tanks that were part of the island's old water system. Originally gas operated, the light now has an active solar-powered beacon.

The tower has concrete circular stairs that lead you up to the scenic point that offers panoramic views of most of the island (almost 360 degrees). A plaque at the foot of the stairway was constructed in honor of two local men who died at sea.

It is only accessible through a hiking trail from the street, but it is well worth the trip.
