Primeval Forest

Primeval Forest National Park has only just recently been opened to the public, and is for the most part, undeveloped. Left to its natural state, this park is for nature enthusiast and experienced hikers.

The Primeval Forest is an old-growth forest that has remained relatively untouched by human hands. Features within the forest include limestone caverns, sinkholes, fossil remains, and Lucayan artifacts.

With limited amenities and facilities, it is best to contact the park directly to see what is currently available. Common excursions usually include hiking and kayaking.


Positioned near the center of the island of New Providence, 2.7 miles southeast of Old Fort Bay, Primeval Forest invites customers rooming on this part of the island. However, even if you aren't staying particularly close, you should think about stopping by for some fun in the sun. From this location, Cable Beach is to the northeast.

The Primeval Forest is located in southwest New Providence.
