Lucayan National Park
Lucayan National Park park is famous for its extensive underwater limestone caves, pristine mangrove swamps, and beautiful beach. The caves are best seen on a scuba dive, but walkers can descend into one of them via a wooden staircase. The beach, called Gold Rock, is absolutely gorgeous, and is reached from the cave area by a winding footpath which includes sections of very rickety wooden boardwalk. There are also interesting nature and bird watching trails.
Deadman's Reef, located off Paradise cove, is a popular excursion with keen snorkelers. The reef has an amazing variety of corals, lots of tropical fish, including parrot fish, barracuda, bonefish, and grouper plus rays, lobsters, and even the odd shark. Though you have to be a confident swimmer to make the 200 yard swim from the beach to the reef. Situated about 20 miles north west of Freeport.
