The caves are a quick diversion. Worth taking a look at, but won't need a lot of time. Don't worry - you're barely going into a small opening, not underground at all. There are bats - neat to see, they won't bother you. The real gem here is Gold Rock beach. Walk across the street and spend some time on... More

We arrived by rental car (recommended as you are on your own timetable). We did the hikes/walks to the caves immediately. They are nice, but short and not so much to see. Took maybe 15-20 minutes. Then headed to the beach across the highway. Lovely 10 minute walk along boardwalks over mangroves to get the beach. Kids enjoyed looking for... More

We stopped here on our way to the east end of the island. This beach is absolutely beautiful! The walking trail to Bens Cave was nice, the mangroves were cool, but the beach is really the sight to see.

It's just a short walk through the park and the caves are rather mundane but it gives a good feel of the flora without development. Expansion of the park would make this a much better (and longer) experience, but then visiting can only help finances for that. The best part now is Golden Rock Beach, perhaps the best beach in...

Our tour guide was Sam and this was a great experience, and one we would recommend to anyone!! Our group of three had a wonderful day! The lunch was fine and Gold Rock Beach was breathtaking! We booked this tour though our cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines. We were taken on a bus from the pier and then switched over... More

I was well worth the $5 each but it isn't that large a park. A relatively short wooden walkway takes you to Gold Rock Beach. The raccoons and redwing blackbirds beg for food all along the walk (take some bread if allowed?). Gold Rock Beach is huge at low tide and very pretty but the trail back is closed so... More

We took a 1/2 day and drove to Lucayan National park. There is no need to book a tour here, you can get there very easily if you have a rental car and it's pretty much a self guided short tour of 2 caves and some plant life and amazing Gold Rock Beach! The cost is $5 per person for... More

The caves are cool and interesting. Our tour only went into two caves but as a kid I remember going into two different caves. The mangroves were pretty too, we even hand-fed a raccoon (the biggest land predator), but Gold Rock Beach is the pinnacle of this location. I can't say enough about this beach. It's the prettiest beach I've... More

We visited Lucayan National Park on a self tour with a rented Jeep. There are two sections to the Park: the caves and the beach. There is a short walking tour to visit the caves. The beach is accessed by two paths. We opted for the long path first (going to the right after you cross the road). There wasn't... More
