    Caves and a gorgeous beach!
    We took a private tour with Donald Duncombe that we booked through ToursByLocals. It was a wonderful experience. Highly recommend going with Donald. He pointed out lots of information about the plant species and caves. The park area is pretty small and probably only takes about 20 minutes to go through. But you can spend as much time on the beach as you want to. Gold Rock Beach is calm and gorgeous and not busy.

    Interesting Park
    Visited in mid May 2023. This tour is quick and easy, with a couple very interesting spots. You don’t need a guide, just drive out and pay the entrance fee and read the plaques. We did a bit of reading up on the site before visiting. Head to Gold Rock Beach afterwards. Also, make sure you have plenty of gas in the car and bring food and drinks. There is nothing out in this area. It’s a fun thing to do!

    A Wonderful Nature Walk
    We took the pathway through the park and visited the caves before visiting the beach. The water in the caves is gorgeous and clear and you are able to see several fish. In Ben's cave, we were able to see bats flying around. It was very neat to see them in nature instead of in the zoo. We enjoyed the variety of flowers and plants we saw through the path.

    Worth the drive out
    We nearly didn't make it here, but I'm so glad we did!! The caves were really neat and the beach was just lovely. It was overcast, so we never saw the rock turn gold, but it was still a nice beach. Found some great shells and the snorkelers in our group spotted some huge conch and a dolphin!

One of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world! The Bahamas National Trust maintains this for everyone to enjoy the beach, sandbars and Petersen Cay just a few hundred feet off shore. Visit the caves, the creek, mangroves and enjoy this beautiful park.

I found Lucayan National Park to be an interesting history of the Taino culture. There are two wet caves you can enter and, on the other side of the Grand Bahama highway, you can see the different plant life. The path loops around to Gold Beach and you can even buy alcohol near the end of the path.

A great deal of nature, a bit of history, and one of the most beautiful beaches on the island of Grand Bahama. A bit away from the tourist resorts but well worth the trip.

This was fun, and had been on my list since I saw photos, but it wasn’t worth the price of admission, imo. $6/child under 13 and $11/adult, it cost $46 for my family to see a couple caves and go to an average beach. I love reading educational signs, but these could be summarized to say: there are 6 miles of mapped caves, there are bats in one cave (that was cool - I LOVE bats!) , one new category of crustaceans was found there that looks like a millipede, and remains of some Lucayan people were found buried there. Again, it was fun, just not a lot as far as not a lot to see, do, or learn. Visitor center was not open when we went; not sure if it’s typically not open or why it wasn’t.

A must see! The caves were so interesting and only required a short walk. The beach is absolutely stunning!. Just go here on your own and spend as much time as you want to - there's no need to book a tour.

The north side of the park has rocky walking trails that lead to interesting places. Ben's Cave is viewable because the cave roof collapsed and there are now stairs down to the floor. There is also a burial grounds to explore nearby.
Across the highway are trails to Gold Rock Beach. The mangroves with all the birds and fish are fascinating.
There is an entrance fee for exploring the park.
