During the days of the Lucayans, many islands of Bahamas were covered by the canopy of giant trees there grew as tall as 50-feet. Primeval Forest National Park is one of those rare places where you can still see those tall mighty trees - Blackland Coppice. With such forests, sinkholes and karst features, the park represents a unique geology which is rarely found anywhere else in the Bahamas.
