Must go!

Rent a car and go - the beach is secluded and amazing. Go at low tide if you want to walk way out, or go at high tide and have awesome water to swim in with no one around.

We went at low tide as recommended to us by others and we were not disappointed! Google the tide chart to plan your trip, the time of day changes. There are no facilities for bathrooms or water that we saw on the beach side, so plan accordingly. There are bathrooms at the parking lot. Bring plenty of water as it... More

We had a good time visiting the caves and taking a short trail to Gold Rock Beach which is awesome, Make sure you come during low tide and when it is not windy.

The entrance cost is only $5 and worth every cent. Gold beach was amazing. The tide was going out an it was incredible to see children walking out into the water at least a half mile out and they were still standing. I wish we could have stayed until sunset to see if the big rock in the water looked... More

Short hikes for kids. The beach was stunningly beautiful. Very inexpensive to rent a car and visit on your own.

A really beautiful beach and is very bonefish friendly on an incoming tide. Great place for a picnic. There are caves in the area that are also quite interesting.

We were here as part of a tour. We visited Ben's Cave and Burial Mound Cave which are small caves with underwater components. Also visited Gold Rock beach, an amazingly beautiful beach. Admission to the NP was $5. There was a woman across from the parking lot selling gifts, drinks, snacks from her car. Her homemade banana bread was delicious.... More

If you ever end up in Freeport, put Lucayan National Park at the top of your activity list. There's not much left on this island since the hurricanes took out many of the top attractions, but this beach is still as pristine as they come. Take the extra time to make a day out of this because you can walk... More

the caves were okay but the beach is spectacular. if you don't mind walking, you can be more secluded. As you face the water, to the right are some large trees lying like driftwood (quite beautiful to look at).

Very nice small park. There were caves teeming with fish and bats, mangrove swamp with other wildlife. After walking through the mangroves into the brush, you eventually come upon a trail to the beach. This beach is by far the most beautiful on the island. It is well worth the walk. Be sure to pack a blanket, because you will... More
