Just south of Deadman's Cay, the main settlement on Long Island, lies one of the most fascinating cave systems in the Caribbean. Full of stalactites, stalagmites and bats, the caverns were once used by the original settlers of the island, the Lucayan Indians. Careful examination of the walls will reveal carvings and writings left by the now extinct civilisation. It is also rumoured that pirates of the 17th century used the caves as a base and hiding place for their booty. Maybe you'll stumble upon a lost treasure chest!
