#2 of 7 in Nature in Grand Bahama Island
Geologic Formation Cave
The mysterious and enchanting Ben's Cave attracts many visitors with its clear, turquoise water and interesting history. Lush bromeliad and orchid trees cover this hidden gem, where the remains of Lucayan Indians were found preserved under rocks in fresh water 2 m (6 ft) deep. The caves' pool consists of a layer of fresh water sitting atop salt water, while the passages within the cave extend 900 m (3000 ft) horizontally. See bats hanging from the ceiling and fish swimming in the water. You can scuba diving in the cave, under the guidance of an authorized dive instructor.

  • but don't make a special trip thinking your going caving. the excursion is down a set of stairs to a large deck....nothing more to see.  more »
  • A cave filled with still murky water that is accessible by one winding staircase. Nothing much to see. No exotic fishes or good views.  more »
  • Interesting these caves which are connected to the sea from locations accessible only to cave-divers. A visit from "Earth" takes a few minutes and the bats there are always but only during certain seasons (from what I understand, the summer). A small ticket to enter or, more easily stage of a tour.
