We stopped here on our way to East End. This beach is so beautiful and had no one but us on it. You have to walk through the nature park to get there, so watch out for biting flies!! It's worth the walk though.

This Beach was the best in the Bahamas, it was different at sunrise and sunset... the tide would bring even starfish up... and it all was natural. was not too crowed... very clean both times I have been here.

Gold Rock Beach, located in Lucayan National Park, was one of the highlights of our visit to Grand Bahama! You follow a short nature trail across the tidal, mangrove wetlands to reach the beach. The wetlands are beautiful in their own way, and are protected in the The Bahamas like they are in the USA. We arrived at low tide,... More

One of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It is so worth the extra money to get here. Bring a picnic basket and spend the day. Clear water and the surf isn't rough so its easy to swim. No facilities, so bring everything you need. You won't regret it! Must do when in Freeport.

So beautiful!!!! We went while the tide was out and it was about 200 yards out to the water. We had a blast here. A very relaxing beach to visit and the short walk from the main road is very peaceful. Will have to come back!!

My husband and I honeymooned in Grand Bahama in April/May. We rented and car and drove out to Gold Rock beach and it's absolutely gorgeous! The area is pretty easy to find because there is a Lucaya National Park sign on the side of the road. You'll see the parking lot and then a small building where you go to... More

We went to the beach around 10 or 10:30am...it was just two of us on the beach. This is the site for one of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. The tide was low, so it was amazing to see so much sand where the ocean had covered before. The sand and water were so warm, and the scenery was... More

My husband and I visited Gold Rock Beach will taking a personal tour with Charlie Bevans. We arrived via Norwegian Sky, and fortunately found Charlie when we departed the ship. Charlie had taken us on tour a year before, we did not have this scheduled but so thankful we found Charlie. Walking through the Mangroves to get to Gold Rock... More

This is where pirates of the Caribbean was filmed. Warm water, beautiful sand, shallow water. Great for families.

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
