Interesting but as others say, not worth a special trip for it only... however with the best beach on the island right across the street, it is worth seeing. We saw 2 different caves in this small area and they were ok, as the water in them is clean and you can see the fish within and the different colors.... More

We visited the first week of June and paid $5/pp for the Park and Gold Rock Beach. It was well worth it. We were the only people on the trail to Ben's cave and once there we had it to ourselves for 20 minutes. We sat and listened to the chirping of the bats and it was wonderful! We took... More

This partially collapsed cave is smelly, dank, slippery with mold and generally nasty. While we were there, several people slipped on the flimsy aluminum stairway down to the cave. Skip the cave and go enjoy the beautiful beach across the road.

We went to Gold Rock Beach so we decided to check out Ben's Cave while we were there. It was pretty cool but I probably wouldn't suggest that you go out of your way to go look at it. You take a trail to it from the parking lot and then go down a wobbly spiral staircase into the cave.... More

My husband and I secured a taxi driver who is awesome - Charlie Bevans from the port when we arrived via Norwegian on March 24th. This was our second time having Charlie as our tour guide. It was just my husband and myself which is great to be able to have a individual tour. We experienced Ben's Cave, Gold Rock... More

This is a very tiny underwater cave with not much to see. Don't waste your time unless you've never seen a bat.

This was a part of tour to Lucayan Park. The tour guide we had made the walk interesting telling us about the different plants that were used for medicine. He took us into two underground caves that had platforms to stand on. He provided us with information on each of the caves we visited- interesting information regarding the area.

This was part of a tour by Bahamas Interisland Eco Tours. We really enjoyed these caves and learned a ton! Jeff, our guide did a great job pointing out some of the wonderful sights here. This cave was small but wonderful. An unexpected find! This is part of Lucayan National Park and NOT a tourist area. It's nice, but there... More
