  • A nice place full of local history. They offer snorkeling excursions but you need to go when the weather is calm. A park of Clifton is Jaws Beach, yep they filmed Jaws 4 there. Small and quiet and nev...  more »
  • Interesting shore, slave quarters and wildlife. A nice stop. It is interesting to see how the west side of the island is used.  more »
  • We spent 3 hours soaking in the natural beauty of this park. We snorkeled with two guides, who did a fantastic job taking us around the underwater sculpture garden. The water was warm and clear. Then ...  more »

  • I was there April 6th 2017. The place is a total dump! Do not waste your time going there. Everything is in complete disrepair. Employees just stand around but never make eye contact with you because they don't want you to bother them. There are broken down, abandoned vehicles there, exposed electrical wiring, down fences and signs, buildings that are a shambles and no one appears to be doing anything but standing around. I took my family there for what I thought was going to be a nice park visit...I was embarrassed and completely disappointed. All the pictures that you see of the park that look nice must have been taken years ago, the place looks nothing like what you see on the website....My local dump is better kept than this Park. It's really sad, it could really be something nice if it was kept up and maintained. I cannot really put into words how disappointed my family and I were and will never consider going back. If I could give negative stars to this place I would! Please don't make the same mistake I made.
  • Interesting to look at and historical items. Wish tour was better. Did an ATV excursion.
  • The park is still recovering from a storm. The snorkeling tour and the Slave village tours are interesting and fun. The 4 wheeler ATV tour created a mess, very dirty and dusty, not for me. The employees are excellent. Package included tours, time on the beach, lunch, and taxis. I recommend this, enjoyed it for sure. Once things are back in order, this should be 4 star rating.
  • Recommended to us by our cab driver we took the trip from downtown Nassau. While the distance is great, especially if you going by cab, it is worth all effort. This park, in contrast to the resort beaches, belongs to the locals who painstakingly are working on its development. Once there you're apart from the noise of traffic and crowds surrounded only by nature. We were the only ones on the beach which is as beautiful and pristine as you'd expect. If you choose to do so the park staff will drive you to the beach and bring you home cooked lunch. On site there are historical ruins, snorkeling around one of the largest underwater statue gardens and old holy sites. We saw the park in January and the recent hurricane is still very evident as is the ongoing work. Yet, none of this took away from the peace once you're on the beach.
  • Wonderful place to go to learn about our heritage, see some beautiful beaches to swim.in and have a great family outing!
