So we took the GB Nature Tours 5 hour kayak/cave tour and spent 1.5 hours here. It was the half way point and lunch stop on our tour....which happened to be on the coldest day Feb 19, 2015 for the island! We didn't notice, sunbathe and went in the ocean. This is where the Pirates II and III where filmed... More

November 2015 - our family group of 14 rented a private van and driver to tour the island. Lucky, our driver took us to many different attractions but the highlight for me was Gold Rock Beach. It was absolutely beautiful, truly an amazing area to enjoy. We toured the caves and then walked thru the mangroves until we hit this... More

A visit to Gold Rock Beach is a must! We rented scooters and spent an afternoon there, though tour and taxi options are available.

My husband and I visited this island for our honeymoon back in December and we fell in love with this beach! It is absolutely beautiful. We stepped on the beach and we both said "wow". We went here on a tour (which we highly recommend...Lucaya Nature Tour Kayaking one). We were here at low tide which again we highly recommend.... More

We booked the Caves and Beach excursion through NCL last week amd thoroughly enjoyed it! We have been to Freeport on past cruises, but this was the MOST amazing day we have spent there. The caves are interesting, but when we walked across the street and down the boardwalk through the mangroves and caught our first glimpse of the beach,... More

A must see if you are going to Grand Bahama. Skip the overcrowded and over commercialized beaches near Freeport and take the drive out to Lucayan National Park. You won't be disappointed!

This is the most beautiful beach I've ever been to! We were here on a cruise excursion in 2010 and I've always wondered what the name of the beach was. Now I know. As other reviewers have said, there are no words that can describe how truly beautiful this beach is. Go at low tide and yes you can walk... More

This is a glorious beach to walk for miles on. It's across the street from the caves so it's a twofer. Ask for Shalton Barr in town. He'll take you out there.

On a trip to Freeport earlier in January, my husband and I took a drive out to the east end of the island, making a brief stop at Gold Rock Beach. We had hoped to snorkel, but the wind was up and conditions a little too choppy to do so. However, we did enjoy a walk on this very beautiful... More

Our travels have taken us to a lot of Caribbean beaches over the years. So glad that we decided to visit this one on our trip to Grand Bahama Island. Gold Rock Beach is just as gorgeous as all of the photos. What really struck me was how peaceful and quiet it was. The beach was practically deserted. Check the... More
