One of the most well-kept preserves under the Bahamas National Trust umbrella, the 25-acre Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve is a haven for fauna as well as flora. A 1-1/4-mile trail provides an easy stroll past a waterfall, through a mangrove forest, and around a number of gardens. One is devoted to edible and medicinal plants. Another subdivides plants into the cultural era that brought them to the island — from native Lucayan tribesmen to Americans.
An observation tower is one highlight of the trail at Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve. Along the way, you will spot birds, lizards, and insects indigenous to the Bahamas. Touring can be self-guided or, with advance reservations, guided.
