Nothing special

A cave filled with still murky water that is accessible by one winding staircase. Nothing much to see. No exotic fishes or good views.

I learned that there were native americans on the island before the arrival of Columbus et al. which was interesting.

Found a guided tour for 40 bucks per person. Bus took us to Ben's cave, to see some mangroves, the city, and even some old houses (ravaged by hurricanes lol). 10/10 for the price.

Amazing blue hole. Don't miss this at Lucaya National Park. Huge underwater cave system and amazing natural wonder.

I've never been in an cave before, but I put my big girl undies on and went for it. It was an awesome experience. I never knew that Native Americans once existed there. I"m a history buff so I loved it. The spring water that runs underneath supplies the entire island.

It is worth learning about the islands history and make up. But as tourists who desire beach and crystal clear water this attraction lacks WOW factor. However, just walk about 5 minutes across the street over the bog to get to a pristine uninhabited beach that has tons of WOW factor.

This place is pretty cool they aren't really caves more like sink holes but we loved them. It's only $5 a person then your right across the street from the most beautiful secluded beach Gold Rock Beach. We used a rental car so no group tours with a lot of tourists. This is a cheap must do when visiting Freeport.... More

Stopped here on a cruise tour to see the bat caves. The cave was a short walk up a hill from the parking lot and then you have to take a rickety spiral staircase down into the cave. No one seemed to have issues with this. The cave was smaller than I expected, but PLENTY of bats (and spiders) to... More

Here you will find a most unusual combination of salt water and fresh water meeting in Ben's Cave. If you are a more than great Scuba diver, arrange a dive of Ben's Cave. It requires a level of skill to deal with the combination of the waters as it requires weight adjustments. If you are not a diverse, walk down... More
