The Basics

Lucayan National Park is the clear favorite of the three national parks on Grand Bahama Island and a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts. Half-day tours of the island’s East End almost always include time in the park, typically a trek along the elevated boardwalk to Gold Rock Beach and a visit to one of the limestone caverns open to visitors. The national park charges a small admission fee per person, which can be paid at the Rand Nature Center (and is included in most guided tours).

Bahamas East End and Lucayan National Park Tour
The best part of our vacation - Highly recommended - The tour guide was prompt in picking us up from the hotel, and was very friendly and knowledgeable about the Park. The weather was perfect at 78 degrees. The beach was clean! The ocean water was so blue, clear and cool! I was so sad when it was time to leave.

Trevor was a great tour guide! He was so nice, courteous and funny. He was very knowledgeable about everything the tour and beach had to offer. We definitely saw and learned about many new things. And the Gold Rock Beach literally across the road from Lucayan National Park is absolutely breathtaking. It was a wonderful experience I highly recommend this tour, you wont be disappointed.

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!

Hotel pickup and drop off time is included in the tour time shown, so we didn't have much time at the beach. Our guide Trevor was good and the two beaches and park visited were worth the money.

Trevor, our guide was really nice and made sure we were set on the right bus back to the port. The caves were interesting but I thought we could snorkel-not so. The beach is very primordial and open. We are at a nice restaurant bit no conch salad. The cracked conch was very good though.

Wow! This is a MUST DO! Gold Rock beach is soon beautiful! Biggie was a wonderful, pleasant, knowledgeable, tour guide. If you don't do anything else take this tour. My resort was not offering this so it is a good thing i found it on Viator.

Bahamas East End and Lucayan National Park Tour
I rated this a four, because the Ben's Cave wasn't very exciting. It was a cave. But, the beaches were just beautiful!! It was the beach that you read about, white sandy beaches and crystal clear water!! Just beautiful!! I even saw a wild stingray, it was right next to me!! I was too excited!!

When to Get There

The national park grounds close at 4:30pm daily, so it’s a good idea to show up early to make the most of your time. Temperatures are suitable for outdoor activity throughout the year, but rainfall is more frequent from May to October.

Gold Rock Beach

You might recognize Gold Rock Beach, even if this is your first time on Grand Bahama Island. Scenes from the second and third installments of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies were filmed on this stretch of sand—the widest on Grand Bahama at low tide. Visitors come to this pristine beach for its tidal pools and spectacular natural scenery.
