|About these ratings|
There are three national parks on Grand Bahama, but this is the definitive favorite. A 40-acre spread of mangrove, palm and pine trees, Freeport's Lucayan National Park also contains lovely white sand beaches, the impressive Gold Rock Beach and one of the longest underwater limestone caves in the world.
You'll probably need at least several hours to explore the two underwater caves — one of which is where the bones of Lucayan people were discovered in 1986 — and to swim at the secluded Gold Rock Beach. You can also kayak or ride horses in the park.
If you are short on time, recent visitors suggest you forego some of the other activities in favor of the beach. One TripAdvisor user writes in: "If you are looking for a clean, maintained beach with facilities and food and attractions to keep you busy, this is not the one for you. But if you want to get away from the crowds, see an amazing beach with tons of shells and the opportunity to snorkel in clear water, this is an awesome choice."
You can visit the Bahamas National Trust's website for more information on visiting the park, which is open daily.
