The history of the cave was interesting but it was NOT what I thought it was going to be, stagnant water, bats, dirty, and a very long drive.

As part of the Lucayan National Park this the second of the two caves. It says they found some bones...we found bat poop covering most horizontal surfaces including the hand rails. It stunk like amonia from, you guessed it, bat poop. So if you are into stinky holes in the ground that smell like bat poop, you have reached your... More

Don't waist your time seeing this unless you've never seen a bat in a mini cave. It's really not much to see besides a hole with some water and a few fish in it.

It was a short walk and worth seeing. Right across the street from a beautiful beach. Parking right there and washrooms available.

On a trip to Gold Rock Beach on Grand Bahama Island we took a quick detour across the road to visit this cave. We were told that the indigenous people would throw their dead through a hole in the roof of the cave into a creek that would then lead to the sea. Interesting with kind of a spiritual aspect.

This was a quick stop on our hike through Lucayan National Park. We walked the wooden steps on to a small boardwalk where our guide told us that the remains of the indigenous Lucayan Indians had been discovered there, along with shards of ancient pottery. The water is stagnant, and there were bats present. This cave, also, is a part... More

There's not much to see here (think 10 minutes while you're on a nature walk), but if you go with that in mind, you won't be disappointed. The cave is full of bats, which I thought was so cool to see. If you keep walking, you'll see Ben's Cave too.

The cave has bats and fish, but not much else. However, the park is packed with scenic views and cool things to explore.

The other public access cave in the Lucayan National Park. Again the crystal clear water, but no bats here! Interesting history. Another interesting find for those with a fondness for attractions off the beaten path. Just a short walk from Ben's cave and the parking lot! Worth a visit before you hit Gold Rock Beach!
