Awesome beach! My husband and I went twice because we missed low tide the first day. At high tide the beach is super small, but at low tide it is amazing. Bring food, drinks, seats. Use the cruise excursion picnic area till the get there around 11. It's got tables and shade. Check out the park itself. The caves are... More

I have seen a lot of beaches in the Caribbean and Hawaii and I have never seen such a quiet serene more beautiful beach in my life. Be sure to time your trip at low tide and walk the white sand and crystal blue water for miles it is an experience you will never forget!

I've been to quite a few Caribbean beaches and this one ranks right near the top. When the tide is out the beach is long and flat and the water is shallow. There are huge piles of driftwood that are spectacular. We had lunch at a picnic table on a small bluff with shade and a nice breeze. There are... More

My eight year old daughter and I went after seeing one cave at Lucayan National Park. The park was disappointing, but this beach was amazing! It was secluded, clean, and beautiful. We spent about an hour just swimming in the ocean.

My wife and I love to travel the US east coast and Caribbean. My wife is also a diver and has visited many of the Caribbean islands. We both agree that this is our favorite beach by far, and she will go as far as to say her favorite place on earth. Every time we get to Grand Bahama this... More

The Lucayan park is neat to see but take a walk on the open beach and see pure beauty in nature. Untouched beach that has high/low tide every 12 hours. Take lunch and some drinks and relax alone as a couple in true paradise, it does not exist in this way anywhere else in the South.

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
