Fodor's Review

The largest cave system in the Bahamas, Hamilton's Cave features stalactites and stalagmites, and passages over 45 feet wide and 9 feet high. The Lucayan Indians were thought to have lived here about AD 500 and many Lucayan artifacts were discovered in 1936. Leonard Cartwright will take you on a guided tour, complete with flashlights, as you explore inside the dark depths of his childhood playground. For added excitement, plan to go closer to dusk when the resident bats are most active!
