This was an interesting stop on the way to the east end of the island. We hiked to see Ben's cave and the Bats.

Visited Ben's Cave at Lucayan National Park with our private tour guide, Anthea, from At YOUR Pace Private Tours. This was totally an awesome experience. This cave had flower bats that migrate to the cave during the summer months and leave during the winter months. It connects to the ocean miles away via an underground tunnel.

Located very close (almost adjacent) to the other cave: Burial Mound cave. Historically the caves are very interesting as they were sacred places of the native inhabitant of the island (the Lucayan Indian). It is also located close to Gold Rock Beach, which is a very amazing and pristine beach.

Beautiful area, accessible by car if you are visiting the island by cruise for the day. Rentals are cheap enough, and give you the flexibility to explore this area and the surrounding beaches at your leisure.

Rented a car and took it out to National park. Visited the caves, bats were fun to watch, No mosquitos thank goodness. Took path to both caves and then crossed street and went to park.

We definetly wanted to see the caves and caverns after reading about the history of the Lucayan people. What we really wanted to do was dive the 6 plus miles of caverns but the weather and time did not allow. Either way it was a good way to spend the day and certainly worth the $5.00 addmission

Mysterious and enchanting........part of the National Park and right across Gold Rock Beach. In the caves Yiu can see the spongy limestone where the water from the surface percolates down and on the walls you can see the changes in strata caused as water levels changed in the past. Another indication of past water levels is the presence of fossil... More

This was a nice experience, but we thought the caves were bigger and there was not much to see. Loved the last part, going to the Gray Rock Beach.

Short walk to see all of them. We coupled this with gold rock beach right across the street. It's nice to see the bats and the clear water here. but the beach is the real attraction here.

If you're checking out gold rock beach you might as well check out the caves. It only takes a 5 min walk to see both caves and they are neat. Nothing spectacular but the water is very clear and colourful with fish. Good educational experience for kids. We were glad we went.
