As part of the Lucayan National Park excursion, we were given time at this amazing beach. Physically, compared to beaches on the Florida panhandle, this beach is not that special (The Florida Panhandle is a pretty high standard). The sugar white sands extended far into the shallow blue oceans. What made this beach more special was that it was completely... More

Gold Rock is beautiful and there is shade but I am glad this was my first beach to visit in the Bahamas instead of my last because I would have been disappointed after going to High Rock just up the road. Same beautiful rippled sand, less people and more beach.

The most beautiful beach I have ever seen. We rented a car and drove here on our own. We walked the paths and saw the caves in the national park and then we walked across the highway to the beach. We arrived before the tours and had the beach to ourselves for almost an hour. The tidal pools were amazing... More

This beach is like something you would see on tv. The beach is amazing. The sand is so white and the water is crystal clear as far as you can see. It's even a spot to buy $5 beer on the beach. The beach is very secluded. The caves are nothing special but do have bats. The mangrove swamps you... More

This is the place not to be missed when you visit Grand Bahama! Getting to the park is easy by car, you will find a parking lot on the north side of the street and a woman selling some food and drinks on the south side (this is the only place to get refreshments at the park). Her banana bread... More

This beach is amazing! I am a beach snob and this is one of the nicest beaches I have ever been to. Go at low tide and enjoy white sand as far as the eye can see. Amazing!

For a short walk you will find the perfect beach that was not at all crowded as it was spread out so far everyone would have a piece of paradise. We went here with a tour group and wished that we hadn't. We spent a short period of time here and wished we could have stayed longer. It is called... More

We stopped here as part of a tour through Bahamas Interisland Tour. Jeff our guide said the beach was wonderful and he was right! This is part of a national park and offered magnificent views/ clear blue water and the whitest sand I have ever seen. Very few people here during our visit, so it seemed remote. My wife and...

This was the most perfect beach we visited in the Bahamas. After a gorgeous walk through a garden and over a bridge, we emerged onto one of the most stunning beaches in history. The water was calm and perfectly warm. The sand was a beautiful gold color. I will never forget this beach and the time spent here with my... More

This was a gorgeous beach! We rented a car for the day and drove out there from Freeport. Definitely worth a visit, and nice to go there on our own schedule instead of as a part of an excursion.
