Sand Bars for miles

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

We went on the last day of our trip just to see what this was all about. I wish we had gone earlier. Rent a car so you can stay here as long as you want...we only had a couple hours with the tour/taxi. Check if the tide is out first though (ask a local). It was absolutely amazing to... More

30+ miles of untouched beauty. I would go back to the island for this beach alone, it was incredible. Make sure you go at low tide (every six hours), and you can walk out in the white sands for what seems like forever.... Absolute paradise.

The beach is incredible in and of itself, If you're a swimmer, there is a coral reef rock about half a mile out that my group swam to, and it was amazing! Definitely worth the swim if you can do it. if you get there during low tide you can leave your stuff on the drift wood, but watch for... More

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
