“Great Day-Time Activity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

I visited the Lucayan Caverns on a guided tour with my fiance last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It's helpful to learn about the caverns from somebody who is enthusiastic about their history and preservation. Go on a sunny day to be sure that the caverns are lit up below. The depth of each is surprising and beautiful. Some people dive in the caves and travel from cave to cave in the tunnels - you must be certified to do this and must do it with a tour guide. The path to reach the caverns takes you through a variety of greenery (which, if you've got a great tour-guide, you will learn how to use as home remedies).

I highly recommend this tour for adults and history buffs. Children may not be quite as excited about it, but of course the fee to tour these caves ($5) also includes access to the BEAUTIFUL Gold Rock Beach across the street - which children will absolutely love.

I booked this tour through Viator.com, which led me to the H. Forbes touring company. Kevin was my tourguide, and he was absolutely charming - very entertaining and a true Bahamian gem.

Don't forget to buy a refreshing coconut water or locally made Gumbay Punch from the van at the beach entrance!

“Cool Caves...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

If visiting Gold Rock Beach definitely do the caves. I wouldn't go to just the caves alone it wouldn't be worth the trip. Like the other reviews they are like sink holes with easy stairs to climb to view. The whole trail with the caves can be done in one hour. Very interesting information posted at each cave to get your learn on :-)

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

The caves are interesting. They aren't "caves" like what you normally think of when you hear the word "cave," they're more like sink holes, but they're pretty and a good photo op. I recommend stopping and looking at the caves if you're headed to Gold Rock Beach.
