We visited the park on Earth Day. They were having a special event to celebrate Eath Day. We enjoyed participating in the event with kite flying on the beach. We met local people who we enjoyed a nice conversation and a kite! Great day

This is hands down the most gorgeous beach my family and I have ever visited. You walk on a boardwalk through beautiful mangroves to get to the beach. The sand is fine and powdery and when wet, it feels like clay. We found several conch...More

The entry fee is $5 per person. It's a quick 10 minute loop, but it's beautiful. You can walk down into 2 different cave systems. Divers can also dive the caves through a local scuba shop. A walk across the street to "Gold Rock Beach"...More

Sadly no :( To do the walk around the caves loop is quite rugged and there are winding stairs to the caves themselves. To access the beach would also be tricky as it's a sandy pathway.

True 1-day-only payments for car rentals in Freeport? (2 Replies)
I've just been planning to spend a day on Gold Rock Beach with my girlfriend at Freeport, and I'm finding that it's going to be very difficult to do so, because car rentals apparently require you to pay for a minimum of three days, or at least the ones I have looked into. (Apparently getting to Lucayan National Park would run $400 round trip on taxis, so that's out of the question.) We will actually be coming in on a cruise, so we'll only be able to use the car for four hours, leaving...More

Sounds like a tour would be most cost-effective for you. Celebrity Rentals at the port will rent for one day. Not the cheapest but not $225 either.

Any one have any idea how far this is from the Norwegian cruise port? Can you have a taxi take you and come back for you? Any idea of costt?

Response fromJohann&Sandra|
About 45 minutes. Yes, you can do that, make sure you get a cell phone number, though, because if they don't come back then there is nowhere else for about 20 miles, no taxis, nothing. Best to rent your own car or even better to just take one of the tours - there are several that are good.

What to do with about 2 days, what not to miss (8 Replies)
Hi, I'll be on GBI, at the Pelican Bay Hotel from december 27 about 2pm to december 29 about 2pm as well (the boat leaves at 4 or so). I know it,s not that long, but its a first, and I'd like to know what not to miss in such a short time. Is Freeport far from Lucaya, I will be staying in Lucaya, so I thought spending some time there visiting the Marketplace, trying a restaurant or 2, the marina, maybe go to Taino Beach (is it worth it that beach).
