“Remarkably Undisturbed "Getaway"”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

On a Saturday morning, we decided to trek the trails at Primeval Forest which is a preserve tended by the Bahamas National Trust. We learned about native trees and plants, as well as poisonous barks and butterflies. I learnt the difference between a poisonous animal and a venomous animal. We learned the differences between a sink hole and a solution hole...and there just happen to be a lot of those throughout the forest. We saw native fruits that we wouldn't normally see within the city and heard birds all morning long.

This place is remarkably undisturbed with it's limestone caverns and so serene, it was hard to believe that we were still in Nassau. We also got some really cool photos and the park warden was more than happy to take a few of us while he gave us a guided tour.

If you want to check out Primeval Forest, it's opened only on Saturdays from 8am-2pm at just $5 per person. But if you're a tourist and happen to ride by on a Tuesday or Thursday, they might just let you in.

“This Park is not open to the public”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

From the road way this park looks lovely. Since this park is not open to the public it is not possible to give an opinion of it either way.
