The caves across the street are "nothing to write home about" but what a beach. Amazing. I could have stayed all day

The nicest beach I have ever been at. Bring some food and beverage and spent the whole day here! Miles of white sand beach and outstanding calm swimming waters! Enter via the national park - the fee is only $5.00 per person.

Located in Lucayan National Park, this is one of the most beautiful beaches my wife and I have ever visited (and we've been to many!).

If you are in Freeport visiting this beach is a MUST. Absolutely gorgeous. My only recomendation is that your tour gives you enough time there, otherwise rent a jeep. Our tour only gave us about an hour there and it was not enough time to soak in the beauty!

I have been to this beach at least twice while visiting freeport. Once with my husband and then again with my daughters. The water is so beautiful! This is a remote beach. Not very many people here at any given time so don't come alone.

This is by far on of the most beautiful beaches I have visited and we have traveled a lot. The sand is so white and the water is so blue. It is just an amazing site. I am so glad that this is a national park and the Ministry of Tourism hasn't sold it off to the highest bidder. We... More

This beach was fabulous. We also did the kayak tour. The raccoons were awesome and my niece and nephew absolutely loved it. Our guide was phenomenal and very easy going considering my husband has a sense of humor that not all can fully grasp. This was the highlight of our vacation and made the trip memorable. The level of low... More

Every time we travel we seem to find better and better beaches. Let me assure you that a trip to this beach when you are staying on the island is worth it. My advice is to make sure you have at least 1/2 a day. We hired a cab who took us here. It is across the street from another... More
