Departure Time

10:00 AM
Following pickup at your Grand Bahama hotel, board your vehicle for the short ride to visit Lucayan National Park on a less crowded part of Grand Bahama. 

Walk through the vibrant tropical park, viewing a myriad of native birds in the trees and colorful fish in the lagoons. Visit Gold Rock Beach, accessible by a wooden boardwalk, to enjoy the sugar-soft white sand and gentle waves lapping the beach. Simply relax or beachcomb, looking for driftwood and unusual shells, enjoying the peace and quiet that comes with escaping the busy area around Freeport.

This park is home to one of the longest explored underwater cave systems in the world. Encompassing 42 acres (17 hectares,) this park includes five different ecological zones. Visit the caves where the island's Arawak Indians lived before Columbus' discovery of the Bahamas.

After exploring this off-the-beaten-path attraction, your guide will return to your hotel.

Overall a very good value. The caves were interesting; but not the most exciting. I found the trails around them and the mangrove swamp a bit more interesting especially with the signs posted explaining what different types of vegetation were. Gold Rock beach was amazing. Beautiful water, great sand bar for swimming, very picturesque, and isolated. Made you feel completely escaped from civilization. Restaurant and beach after were decent. Food was good and great sitting and having a conch burger and local beer overlooking the ocean. But by far best part was our guide. Extremely friendly, knowledgeable, easy going, professional, and engaging. Gave much information about the Bahamas and our location while in the bus and touring the caves; but allowed us to explore the areas ourselves otherwise. He made the trip fun and interesting without going overboard. Saw him the next day at the restaurant with a different group and remembered us and came over and chatted with us for about 15 min. One of the best tour guides I ever have and his fellow tour guide he introduced us to seemed to be very similar in nature. Would highly recommend this tour and any from H. Forbes as everyone we met from there was great.

Gold Rock Beach is your attraction!!

Our tour guide, Reno, was great! The park is small and so are the caves. I didn’t know this tour was going to two beaches. The first one was Gold Rock beach, which was INCREDIBLE. It reminded me of Trunk Bay at St.John. Reno let the group vote on how long to visit at each beach. He said the other beach had food. Therefore, the group went with Banana Bay beach for the longest time. If I knew what the beaches looked like before I went, I would of choose Gold Rock all the way. It is so clear and you can see the waving sand thru the water. Not to mention, not crowded at all and very secluded. I had snacks so food wasn’t a need for me. All I can say is go see Gold Rock beach, you won’t regret it!

Worst experience ever!!

This attraction was a disappointment from the begining. We were on a cruise and this was our excuriosion for the day at port. I called prior to out arrival to confirm the timing since we would be arriving that day. The person who answered would not listen to my concerns and even once speaking to management I wasnt sure that we would be picked up at the right time. Once it was time to meet with the tour guide, we were treated as if we were stupid because we wanted to confirm that we were on the right tour. When we finaly got on the transportation, we drove around for almost 2 hours picking other people up from their hotels. When we got to the last hotel they discovered that they had too small of a bus for all of the people that had bought tickets so we had to wait another 20 minutes for a bigger bus. When we finaly made it to the national park it was amazing and beautiful! I would recommend visiting here because the caves were unique and the beach was fairly secluded so it was not over crowded. After the park, they took us to a a restaurant that wasnt horrible but it was limited on choices to eat and it was the only place to eat nearby. As we made our way back and dropped off the other people at their hotels, we were informed by the driver that since we had to go back to the cruise port he was going to drop us off with a different bus (not associated with our tour at all). He dropped us off at what appeared to be another beach area were people from the cruises were spending their day. We got on the bus, where we began to wait another 30+ minutes to leave because they wanted to fill the bus all the way. As we made our way back to the port, we discovered that the bus wasnt even going back to our cruise ship but to another one that was not within easy walking distance. Eventually we were taken back to our ship and we were happy the craziness was finally over with. This was one of the most painful and stressful tours I have ever been on. I'm sure part of the issues were because we were on a cruise but they told us that would be no problem and that they do it that all the time. I'm glad there was another family from our ship going through this with us or I'm sure I would have lost my mind. I would not recommend this tour at all!!

We had an awesome trip with Biggie I think that was the name of the tour guide/bus driver. We booked the day before and everything went smoothly! We were picked up in the port before 10am. The tour-guide was very knowledgeable of all aspects of life in Bahamas. We drove to the Caves of Lucayan National Park, beautiful!!!, then from there walked 5 min to the Gold Rock Beach. Best beach I've ever been!!!! Spectacular! After about 1.5 hour, we drove to another smaller also very beautiful beach that had a nice restaurant. After an hour of more swimming we headed back and were back to the port on time by 3pm. Amazing day, highly recommend this tour.

A thoroughly enjoyable escape from our island getaway. We were picked up from our hotel, Viva Fortuna, in a large tour bus and during the 20-25 minute drive to our first stop at Lucayan National Park, our very knowledgable guide delighted us with historical information and anecdotes about the Bahamas. The the first stop brought us to the caves, filled with dozens if not hundreds of napping bats.The best had yet to come, however, as the next stop was Gold Rock Beach. This trip was worth the price alone, an amazingly beautiful location where we stayed for over an hour. Finally, we stopped for lunch at a cute little restaurant on the beach. The food was wonderful try the conch! and the view is equally impressive. I would highly recommend this trip if you're looking to get away from your hotel for a few hours to try something different.

The National park is small and not much to see but Gold Rock beach is stunningly beautiful. It was definitely worth the trip. Our bus driver gave us a lot of historical information on the Bahamas and that was interesting too. Nice day!
