Gold Rock Creek flows above ground at Lucayan National Park and there is a vast underground network of caves located on the premises. There are 2 caves with underground pools that you can visit while you are here. If archaeology and history are among your interests you should know that many artifacts have been discovered in the caves and along the Park’s shoreline.
The sparkling Caribbean waters that surround the Bahamas are always a crowd pleaser, and will certainly be a main attraction for most members of your family.

Deep sea fishing charters can also be reserved and these will take you and your group out into the deeper waters where you can try to land “the big one”.
The Bahamas are a place to enjoy the island music and sample some good food. Treat your family to a visit to the laid back Bikini Bottom Bar and Grill. Sponge Bob and Squidward are not going to be there but you will enjoy the friendly service, fresh food and casual atmosphere.
While on Nassau/Paradise Island you can visit the large Botanical Gardens that covers 18 acres of land.The Ardastra Gardens has a Zoo with about 300 reptiles and animals. It is small but interesting, and the kids love seeing the animals that live there. If you are feeling more adventurous try diving with the dolphins. For those who are real adrenalin junkies there are opportunities available to swim with the sharks. If you want to stay on the land there are scooters that you can rent to tour the island or maybe the horseback rides along the shoreline will be more appealing to your family.
