Beauty of a beach

One of the. Best beaches we were at. Over 20 miles of no one. No vendors, no shops, just miles of beach and shallow water to walk and play in.

We walked the trail to the beach and what a beach! Golden sand, a beautiful horizon and not lots of people! Perfect!

Oh my goodness, by far the most gorgeous white-sand beach I have ever been to. At low tide the beach is so wide it takes you a minute to reach the water! Then at high tide, half of the beach is gone and it takes on a new life. The white sand backs up to nice shady trees and pine... More

This is a most beautiful beach!!! A "must visit" location. Don't be afraid to rent a car/jeep and take the drive. The 330m hike from the road is easy and a beautiful trail through the mangrove swamp. The view when you arrive at the beach is breathtaking. Crystal clear waters, white sand beach stretches for miles. I fell in love... More

See the beach side of the Lucayan caves and do it at low tide best way to see the beach, Well worth the price of tour to get out to the park bring your sun tan lottion and visit Nishops after you do the park!

This must be one of the most beautiful beaches we ever visited! We found a place all to our own, and stayed there for several hours. So calm and so quiet, and the sea is just wonderful! If you ever go to Grand Bahamas - please, you must visit Gold Rock Beach! Go a bit further than where the crowd... More

An absolute, must visit. The beach is gorgeous and secluded. Far superior to the beaches by the resorts in Lucaya. Gold Rock Beach is where they film the Bahamas tourism commercials, with good reason! One of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen. We went there while on a tour with Grand Bahama Nature Tours. There was hardly anyone... More

We stopped at Grand Bahama Island on a NCL cruise and we asked a taxi to take us the 40-ish minute drive to the Lucayan National Park. There is a $5 entrance fee to the national park. We did the short, but nice walking trails of the caves first and then walk through the mangrove trees to probably the most... More

I've seen many nice places and beaches....but OMG this is amazing! Empty, clean, white sand and crystal clear water. 25 miles from the city so you need car. It's part of the National park so it's not crowded and dirty. If you travel to this island you can't miss it! ps: go early in the morning, no people and it... More

I completed the Kayak in the mangroves that are close by and was able to enjoy this little beach area before returning to the cruise ship and Bens Cave is located across the road. Not many people on this beach which made it more enjoyable.
