The beach is gorgeous and serene. Definitely worth the visit. The caves were kind of a letdown. There are only a few to go in and they are only from the roof collapsing in on them. It's not the mouth of a cave that you ordinarily think of. However, our guide did tell us that people scuba in the caves.... More

The caves were very interesting and beautiful. The mangroves were different and gave 2 ways to see them (through the mangroves, or over on a boardwalk). Gold Rock Beach is one of the prettiest beaches I've ever seen. It was nice because there was nothing built on or near the beach. The water is very shallow, making it warmer than... More

Miles of pristine isolated beach - great walks and swimming. Close and personal with a sting ray, baraccuda, porpoises and a shoal of bone fish, just from walking and swimming, not snorkeling. Mangrove swamp is very interesting, good for bird watching. Paradise on earth.

This was quite a drive but we enjoyed the scenic views along the way. We went as a family & not through a tour service. Enjoyable walk on the trail to see the different caves & then across the way is the trail to the beach. Beautiful walk were we heard the different calls of birds but we didn't see... More

Blue water like you have never seen. Hardly anyone there. Very clean. Clear water. Great trip for the day. Nice relaxing day. Really feels like you are on a remote island.

In a short, easy nature walk, you get to experience many different ecosystems. There are caves with fresh water fish and interesting rock formations. Walk a path through jungle so thick you can barely see the sky. Then a boardwalk that takes you over smelly swamp area. A raised boardwalk took us through canals of mangroves. And a walk along...

The kayaking tour was $110 pp through Norwegian Cruise Line. It's a little on the pricey side, but other excursions run about the same price give or take some. The kayaking is fun, the caves are interesting and the beach is beautiful. If you are into nature this is something you should do for sure.

We took a tour called Beaches and caves in Lucayan National Park that was offered by Norwegian Cruise Line and it was such a waste of my day. We love the beach and caves but this shore excursion is a waste of time. The ride was so long to get there and once you are there you walk down a... More

This is the most interesting sight on this small island. It includes an informative walk through bush and mangroves, a couple of caves and sightings of several bird, fish and rodent species. The beach is pure and natural - but one needs to wait for low tide to enjoy fully.

The park is $5 pp and worth it. It is about 30-40 min from Freeport. The park does a great job of keeping the paths maintained. The walking trails are easy to follow. There are info signs so you can do a self-guided tour. We felt comfortable leaving the car in the lot since a ranger stayed in the lot.... More
