I've never been in an cave before, but I put my big girl undies on and went for it. It was an awesome experience. I never knew that Native Americans once existed there. I"m a history buff so I loved it. The spring water that runs underneath supplies the entire island.

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.

This place is pretty cool they aren't really caves more like sink holes but we loved them. It's only $5 a person then your right across the street from the most beautiful secluded beach Gold Rock Beach. We used a rental car so no group tours with a lot of tourists. This is a cheap must do when visiting Freeport.... More

Stopped here on a cruise tour to see the bat caves. The cave was a short walk up a hill from the parking lot and then you have to take a rickety spiral staircase down into the cave. No one seemed to have issues with this. The cave was smaller than I expected, but PLENTY of bats (and spiders) to... More

Here you will find a most unusual combination of salt water and fresh water meeting in Ben's Cave. If you are a more than great Scuba diver, arrange a dive of Ben's Cave. It requires a level of skill to deal with the combination of the waters as it requires weight adjustments. If you are not a diverse, walk down... More

Best part of this trip were the bats! Nothing special bout the cave but across the street is Gold Tree Beach I believe. The mangroves are beautiful and the ocean the most beautiful I've ever seen. Enjoy

Visited Ben's Cave at Lucayan National Park with our private tour guide, Anthea, from At YOUR Pace Private Tours. This was totally an awesome experience. This cave had flower bats that migrate to the cave during the summer months and leave during the winter months. It connects to the ocean miles away via an underground tunnel.
