  • I went this place after hurricane Irma. So few people there. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Historical places and great beaches can be seen.  more »
  • Rather than hitting the bars and beaches of the islands, we appreciate learning about the history and people. Clifton gives a glimpse into plantation life with the various ruins, paths and displays. O...  more »
  • My wife and I took this tour and everyone at the park was so wonderful. Because the parks van was out for maintenance, the manager picked us up at our hotel himself. We then were greeted upon our arri...  more »

  • Nice tour of the fort. I would recommend seeing it. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and very helpful. Everyone here suggest tipping so we did.
  • The place was really cool but a little run down. The whole tour was a bit u organized but really co. Everyone was very friendly and laid back. We were the only people on our tour. We did the snorkeling which I highly recommend. The sculpture garden is unique. However, when we got out we had Oil all over from the oil rig next door. The heritage tour was very interesting. It was good to get some local history. Then they took us to a secluded beach for swimming/relaxation and brought us a delicious lunch. . It's nice because they will pick you up from where you are staying and drop you off. I would recommend this, But don't expect anything fancy.
  • The worst place on Earth. If your black,like racism and being shouted at go to clifton heritage national park. Workers was in the front by the welcome desk. They told us $10.75 plus $10 for the entrance to the park and snorkeling gear.This was also the price that was located on their website.Once we reached the gift shop to pay the Manger of the gift shop tried to charge us $42 instead of the $20.75. After this she started shouting at us about we better pay, when we told her what the other guy said and how it was the $20.75 on the website. I then went to show the price online on my phone and she went to slap my iPhone out of my hand. After this she started saying racist remarks about how she hates when "stick and dirty black people try to come here". Out of the my good caring heart DO NOT GO HERE. BLACK OR WHITE DO NOT GO.
  • There are no doors on the changing rooms. Also poorly organised. It took us 2 hours to do a 40 minute drive. Was petroleum in the water so our snorkeling tour was cut short. This was obviously out of their control and they were very apologetic. The food served was delicious and the beach you eat it on is breathtaking. Over all we found this over priced the the experience
  • Really nice beach although it could use a lot of TLC. *New Providence has an extreme litter problem* As of fall 2017 I have noticed a slight improvement however portions of the park would be considered a Superfund site in the United States. *A power plant on the south eastern edge of the park is routinely leaking petroleum into the ocean * For the life of me, I cannot understand how or why this problem exists and why Island residents seem oblivious?... Okay now with that said, the park does have promise. Located very close to the exclusive "Lyford Cay" and situated along the western shore of New Providence Island. The beaches here are absolutely stunning and I highly recommend a visit to all photography buffs! The park also has remnants of a late 1700's plantation as well. Again, the beach is really the main draw here & whether you are into sunbathing or photography I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed. *snorkeling & swimming can be hit or miss๐Ÿ˜ข as previously mentioned. Weekdays are best & depending on the time of year, you may find that you have the park almost entirely to yourself โ˜บ๏ธ **Love Beach ๐Ÿ– otherwise know as Nirvana Beach could be a good alternative ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
