My husband and I honeymooned in Grand Bahama in April/May. We rented and car and drove out to Gold Rock beach and it's absolutely gorgeous! The area is pretty easy to find because there is a Lucaya National Park sign on the side of the road. You'll see the parking lot and then a small building where you go to... More

We went to the beach around 10 or 10:30am...it was just two of us on the beach. This is the site for one of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. The tide was low, so it was amazing to see so much sand where the ocean had covered before. The sand and water were so warm, and the scenery was... More

My husband and I visited Gold Rock Beach will taking a personal tour with Charlie Bevans. We arrived via Norwegian Sky, and fortunately found Charlie when we departed the ship. Charlie had taken us on tour a year before, we did not have this scheduled but so thankful we found Charlie. Walking through the Mangroves to get to Gold Rock... More

This is where pirates of the Caribbean was filmed. Warm water, beautiful sand, shallow water. Great for families.

As part of the Lucayan National Park excursion, we were given time at this amazing beach. Physically, compared to beaches on the Florida panhandle, this beach is not that special (The Florida Panhandle is a pretty high standard). The sugar white sands extended far into the shallow blue oceans. What made this beach more special was that it was completely... More

Gold Rock is beautiful and there is shade but I am glad this was my first beach to visit in the Bahamas instead of my last because I would have been disappointed after going to High Rock just up the road. Same beautiful rippled sand, less people and more beach.

The most beautiful beach I have ever seen. We rented a car and drove here on our own. We walked the paths and saw the caves in the national park and then we walked across the highway to the beach. We arrived before the tours and had the beach to ourselves for almost an hour. The tidal pools were amazing... More

This beach is like something you would see on tv. The beach is amazing. The sand is so white and the water is crystal clear as far as you can see. It's even a spot to buy $5 beer on the beach. The beach is very secluded. The caves are nothing special but do have bats. The mangrove swamps you... More

This is the place not to be missed when you visit Grand Bahama! Getting to the park is easy by car, you will find a parking lot on the north side of the street and a woman selling some food and drinks on the south side (this is the only place to get refreshments at the park). Her banana bread... More
