Lucayan National Park, Grand Bahama Island

(4.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It's just a short walk through the park and the caves are rather mundane but it gives a good feel of the flora without development. Expansion of the park would make this a much better (and longer) exp...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Absolutely beautiful national park. The beaches on the outskirts of the park were near empty when we were there, which was awesome! That water was so clear, we could easily see 10+ feet down. Definitely recommend checking out Lucayan National Park.
  • Lucayan National Park has a lot of history and amazing geological features. Cave run deep into the forest and sink holes are known to be in the forest. To imagine the natives that settled in the caves and lived off the land is something to think about. The Views of Gold Rock Beach are stunning and so bright due to the pure white sand feels like an entrance to Heaven. A must go back just to experience it again.
  • This is a great Park to visit. Historical caves Nice beaches, with nice restaurants. It is enjoyable at good prices.
