Places in Grand Bahama
Lucayan National Park
This 40-acre national park is Grand Bahama’s finest treasure. About 25 miles east of Ranfurly Circle, the park is known for its underwater cave system, which is one of the longest in the world. Visitors can easily check out two of the caves – Ben’s Cave and Burial Mound Cave – via a short footpath.
This East End village is a popular jumping-off point for bonefishing in the uninhabited cays. Anglers should call up Captain Phil & Mel’s Bonefishing Guide Service, which provides customers with transport to and from Freeport. If you get hungry, stop by Miss Zelma’s Conch Stand for some of Zelma’s outstanding cracked conch or crab rice.
