Lucayan National Park, Grand Bahama Island

4.4
#4 of 17 in Parks in Grand Bahama Island
Nature / Park Wildlife Area
Venture though the six different ecosystems at Lucayan National Park, an ideal spot for the family to explore a variety of tropical habitats. The park stretches across 40 acres (16 ha) and sits 40 km (25 mi) east of Freeport. Hike through the park's diverse vegetation of mangroves, ferns, pine trees and a vast array of rare and exotic flowers. Stroll along the pristine Gold Rock Beach featuring its unique rippled sand endlessly dipping in and out of shallow water. The park also holds one of the world's most expansive underwater cave systems with a labyrinth of tunnels, a result of the island's unique limestone geology. Put Lucayan National Park and other Grand Bahama Island attractions into our Grand Bahama Island vacation route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Awesome caverns. We walked the trails to the 2 caverns and to Gold Rock Beach. The trails to the beach go through mangroves to the Gold Rock Beach. The walkways over the mangroves had great views. Gol...  more »
  • The best beaches I've ever been in my life, I was on the island for work, sadly I had to go, and this beach is what most Miss. Beautiful.

  • We went on a tour organized by us with a taxi. The driver drove as a perfect guide. It's worth a spin (half an hour by taxi). Admission $5. Possibility of bathing on the beach and beautiful sea and no tourists!

  • It was a nice walk to view some caves, but the best part is gold rock beach. It's definitely the best beach on the island and worth the $5 entry fee
  • Incredible national park. Kayaking through the mangroves was amazing, and it was incredibly easy to spot the wildlife, from birds to fish to crabs. Gold Rock Beach has a reputation that would be hard to meet, but it did. Clean, clear water, with starfish, sand dollars, and other marine life in abundance. Well worth making the trip from Freeport.
  • If you're looking for a piece a paradise, you've found it. This is the most beautiful beach I've ever been to!
  • This park is outstanding! Beautiful beach, amazing trails and many nature watching. You can easily get lost if you don't have a guide or a local with you! One of the more memorable parts of my vacation.
  • So much fun exploring the area and caves. The beach is across the highway and absolutely beautiful. There was hardly anyone there on a Sunday. Only $5 a person.
