I live here on grand baham, and always take our visitors there, so I was shocked at the amount it had gone up since our last visit, can't there be a reduction for residents.

This is one fabulous, nearly deserted beach. Bring a lunch and a beach umbrella and your swimming stuff and spend the day. They have a "private" area where a tour company brings their folks, but there's also a free picnic table on the hill above the beach in the shade at the west end of the area. It's beautiful!

A short walk from the road, this beautiful flat beach is wonderful to walk on. We made the 40 minute drive from Freeport twice during our 6 day stay on Grand Bahama, and it was well worth the time. Make sure to bring food and water, there are no vendors at the beach.

We spend days here every year just because it is lovely and relaxing. I have never been on another beach anywhere that compares. White sand that goes on for miles. We enjoy a little extra walking in either direction to get the beach to ourselves. Many times we have observed rays, starfish, pelicans, herons and other shore birds away from... More

This was by far my favorite beach in the Bahamas. Keep in mind that it is a beach without the sea of lounge chairs and no food to purchase. It is just you and the beach, which is what my family and I were looking for. It was high tide when we were there and I've heard it's better during... More

We rented a car in Freeport for the day to make the trip out to Lucayan National Park. There were three of us, so it was worth the car rental cost ($85) vs. the tour cost for 3 ($150). Plus it gave us more freedom to make other stops along the way. The caves are interesting, and worth the loop... More

Heaven on earth. Absolutely heavenly. The sand is fine and perfect for sand sculptures. It is so so secluded. There`s no beach chairs, so bring your own or a blanket. I could`ve laid there forever. I still dream about it. It`s romantic and quiet. And, there`s this cute little cat that hangs around the area. Cutest friendliest cat. If you`re... More

We went to the beach after a morning of Kayaking. You walk a little bit until you get to the beach and you realize you are on such an amazing beach. It is hard to describe but it is so beatiful. You can walk so far out and so close to the rock. It's even better at low tide. If... More

Located about half hour drive from lucaya. Well worth the trip. Be sure to go around low tide, otherwise there isn't nearly as much beach. We have been here on previous trips. This is one of my favorite places on earth. If you walk a little way in each direction there will be no one near you. It is just... More

We rented a car to drive out to Gold Rock Beach from our cruise pier. Definitely worth the drive! This beach may be the most beautiful one I have ever seen (and I've been to many!). Check the tide tables and be sure to go during low tide - the beach almost disappears when the tide is in. Beautifully calm,... More
