Part of Lucayan National Forest, this is a cool thing to see. I think Ben stumbled upon it, or in it--it's like a foot-thick piece of ground gave way, and underneath it, about 12 feet down, was a natural waterway cave system that goes 6 miles (explored to date) out horizontally.

Visited this on several occasions. It is very interesting and fun to cross the street and walk the boardwalk and go to the Gold Rock Beach which is beautiful. New this year was the Park Ranger that hounded us to make sure he got his payment for us to visit the area.

For a small entry fee you can enjoy a short walk to Bens Cave. Not more than 50 yards from the entrance and down a spiral staircase you will find yourself standing in Bens Cave. The clear water lets you enjoy the fish that are calling it home.

The story behind the behind the cave is very interesting. The cave looked undisturbed although it is said to be a popular dive spot (accompanied). It is said to have a new species of centipede in the park. There are all kinds of interesting facts about the park that are very interesting.

This is a short walk to get to the cave; the color of the water is spectacular. There is a small fee for adults to get into the park.

Took the family here and I must admit it is pretty unimpressive. In summary its a hole in the ground with dirty water. Thank goodness it wasnt a long walk to see it.

I was a little disappointed with the cave only because I thought it would be this beautiful under ground area but is was dirty and stagnant, and it was a long drive to get there. However the history of it was interesting.
