We stopped by the Gold Rock Beach on a beaches and cave excursion at the lucayan national park during a recent cruise. The beach was beautiful and untouched. It was truly one of the most stunning beaches I have ever seen. The water was crystal clear and the sand was pristinely white. The beach at on the National Park and... More

We stopped at Gold Rock Beach for just an hour and wished we had more time to take it all in. We were lucky enough to be there at low tide with a virtually empty shoreline. It was truly a stunning beach. Our tour guide shared that the Pirates of the Caribbean movies were filmed on this beach. We spent... More

I have been to beaches all over the Caribbean, Hawaii, Mexico and Europe but let me tell you this beach is stunning! One of the most gorgeous I have ever seen. There are just no words adequate to describe it. You can sit and look at it for hours. All the shades of blue, very little people, crystal clear water.... More

We visited as part of a cruise excursion. During our visit it was high tide but the beach was still beautiful. We took the opportunity to just relax and enjoy the serenity as the cruise had been so busy it was nice to get away to some quiet. I would highly recommend a visit to Lucayan National Park and Gold... More

Almost seems like a hidden treasure in the National Lucayan Park! This was my number 1 place to visit on my list & I was not disappointed! We were there at high tide & I've heard is best to snorkel at low tide. Husband & daughter did snorkel anyhow & swam out by a small reef that's there & they... More

After researching things to do on Grand Bahama Island, Gold Rock Beach always scored high on people's lists. After making a visit, I now understand why! This beach is simply stunning... It is one of the loveliest beaches I have ever visited! When we were attempting to obtain a driver to take us to Gold Rock Beach at the cruise... More

We took a guided tour through mangroves from the main area to the beach via kayak. The kayak trip was so fun (other than the fact my wife wanted to control the kayak and kept running into the mangroves but thats another story). At the end of the trip we came out on the ocean near Gold Rock Beach. We... More

We went to Gold Rock as part of the Lucayan National Park Kayak tour (great excursion for nature lovers!) and it was lovely. The beach is beautiful and great for swimming, but there isn't much to see when snorkeling (at least not that we seen; it is a long beach so maybe there was another area that we missed ?).... More

It is at the Lucayan National Park and cost $5 to park and you can also visit a cave..small but a cave...Not... More

The highlight of Grand Bahamas beach is Gold Rock Beach. The water was so shallow and clear. Fishes are visible (not colorful) and sand was fine and soft. A most visited place and yet water are pristine seem untouched.
