#4 of 22 in Parks in Grand Bahama Island
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.

  • This park is a must see. On one side of the road is the most beautiful beach. Go at low tide for a special treat--you can walk out about 70 yards. It's awesome. Enjoy the driftwood and the sandy stretch of beach where scenes from Pirates of the Caribbean were filmed. On the other side of the road, check out Ben's cave, partially under water. It's an unusual sight and very peaceful. Just beautiful.
  • It was just beautiful, peaceful, the kayaking guide was really great, and I just can't wait to go back. The ocean water was a little too chilly in February to go swimming, but just gorgeous. I'd highly recommend to anyone to visit this place.
  • We went for the beach, this is a must place to visit in free port. The beautiful place I have ever been! The white sand and crystal clear water.
  • Majestic. Park has variety of wild life and fauna. Scenic historical caves and beautiful beach. Great way to spend a day.
  • Fantastic beach. Very isolated. No music, not many people. Just calm, peaceful and beautiful.
