I traveled to Gold Rock Beach with my closest girlfriends which was recommended by several Bahamian locals! If you are looking for a non-commercialized, TRUE beach retreat, Gold Rock Beach is for you! We packed plenty of cold drinks and snacks and enjoyed the clear, blue water and white, sandy beach ALL DAY LONG!!! This is the beach where scenes... More

We went to this beach after a tour of the underground caves. The walk from the road to the beach was nice, a bit far if you have elderly people with you that find walking any distance to be difficult. We arrived there at high tide, so just a few feet of sand and a whole lot of people trying... More

We stopped at this gorgeous beach as part of a tour. It is a rather secluded beach with water color so pretty it's hard to describe. Walking to the beach is its own adventure with mangroves, beautiful bridges, fish and lots of scenery. Once you arrive at the beach, you will find that the walk was more than worth it.... More

Looking for a full service beach with chairs, margaritas and lots of sand? Well, this is NOT it! It takes a while to get to the park, followed by $5 cover and a lovely 5 min walk through mangroves, arriving at beautiful blue waters. The beach itself is maybe 10' in the best parts from trees to water, so it's... More

Having lived here for four months, I waited to see this place when my family got here. Well, I probably should have checked out this place before they came. At high tide this beach is the same as most every other beach in the Bahamas except it is not crowded. Its suppose to be really great at low tide. However... More

The beach was beautiful and to know that we were walking where they filmed part of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie was really cool!! It is a little walk to the beach but well worth it. Find out from the locals when low tide is and go then.

This beach has the most beautiful pattern left in the sand when the tide goes out. Tip: only go at low tide. My family of four rented a car and visited the Grand Lucayan National Park and then walked the mangrove trails to see this truly stunning beach. We found a site on our smart phones that allowed us to... More

I visited this beach on a shore excursion through the Norwegian Sky with stops at the various caves and Banana Bay Beach. This beach is so quiet with crystal clear waters! You don't get the large crowds mainly because there aren't many sitting areas and no umbrellas and chairs. This is the real, unspoiled Bahamas. The trail from the roadway... More

This was the second best beach on the island. It is located in a state park and must be walked to but Its worth the hike through the salt marsh. Once you get through the salt marsh and you see the clear untouched it is all worth it. This beach had sand dunes almost 1000 feet out that you could... More

Gold Rock beach was beautiful, secluded and quiet. Great swimming, and the short hike there is incredible. Bring food and drinks and plan to hang out for a while. Nice escape from the busy resort.
