This easy to miss spot was once favored for its elusive nature -- it functioned as an ideal hideout for pirates that roamed the Bahamas and Caribbean Islands. As you explore this cave, it won't be hard to see why pirates chose this place for their home.


The cave is larger than you might think when you first pull over to enter it. Luckily, unlike many caves, you do not need any special equipment, so it is perfect for the whole family.
