History

MAY-1998 excavation at the cave.

Description

Conch Bar Caves were used as sacred sanctuaries by the native Lucayan Indians. They left petroglyphs on the walls.

The caves are karst caves, located in very young biogenic reef limestone. Rather strange is the locally used term above ground cave.
