Part of Lucayan National Park, there are about 3 caves including this one that you can climb into and explore via the decks constructed. Nice little adventure. Afterwards, go across the road to the beach--awesome experience.

It is worth learning about the islands history and make up. But as tourists who desire beach and crystal clear water this attraction lacks WOW factor. However, just walk about 5 minutes across the street over the bog to get to a pristine uninhabited beach that has tons of WOW factor.

Located very close (almost adjacent) to the other cave: Ben's cave. Historically the caves are very interesting as they were sacred places of the native inhabitant of the island (the Lucayan Indian).

Drove out to the park ourselves. If a guide had not been out there with another group walking into a cave with some bats and water would have been meaningless.

We loved the experience, but thought there was much more to see. It was an old Indian burial cave. Good guide.

Bring your picnic, drinks and good walking shoes. Don't forget your swimsuit for the best beach ever across the road. You must be capable of walking a good hike to see this.

It is a little creepy to think that there were once bodies perfectly preserved here but at the same time it is a very cool cave and the government has done a great job in the maintenance

Cool stairway and walking path takes you down near the beautiful watery cave--where the roof of the cave has such beautiful colors in it. When the light shines just right, if you have a nice camera, it will pick up the colors and light beaufilly.

We went here as part of an excursion from our ship. Do not waste your money. We visited two "caves", more like deep holes in the ground and two beaches. For less than half the money, we could have hired a cab or private guide and gotten a much better value.
