We took a cab from our resort in the Lucaya area so the cab ride was about 25 minutes to Lucayan National Park. At my first trip years ago I was at Gold Rock Beach on a group where we only spent 20 mins there. It was so gorgeous I had to go back. This was my second visit to... More

I am constantly surprised by the level of garbage I find on "remote" beaches. Locals seem to do little to solve the problem so take a bag, pack out more than you take in and the future will be brighter for everyone.

Across from the national park. Be careful crossing the road. Also stock up on cold drinks etc as well. The paths to the beach is beautiful and well kept. The beach itself is great! Water is nice and clear and clean beach..for the most part. Be advised there is a sign stating no life guard.

Words cannot explain how beautiful this beach is. The drive is about thirty minutes and can be somewhat confusing when using the map provided by the resort but it worked just have to pay attention to land marks. The beach will be on your right but for parking will be on your left at the Lucayan Nat'l Park. Entrance is... More

When I travel, it's not for beaches. I went on a cruise with my mom and ended up at this beach as part of an unrelated shore excursion. We loved it! The beach is absolutely gorgeous and you shouldn't be bored if you're there for a couple hours. We actually saw a stingray swimming around in a shallow area, which... More

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
