The beach itself is not as expansive as French Leaves in my opinion. However, the sheer beauty presented by the combination of rock formations, vegetation, and location (tip of the island exposed to both Atlantic and Caribbean sides) is stunning. You can climb these huge rock formations at this tip of the island to look down and around from what... More

Wow - what a road to get there! Its so long and all rocky. Beach is beautiful! To the right are the cliffs - you can hike to the top for a spectacular view! I highly recommend bringing water and shade protection - there are no shady areas.

Was so excited to see this attraction. Unfortunately, I didn't read many reviews before coming to the island. Just tried to remember the name of it. Anyway, my boyfriend and I got at the end of the highway and see that the road was kinda rocky and bumpy. We had a low car. He was thinking that there's no way... More

We were told it was under a mile on a bit of a rough road. Well... It was the worst, washed out, rip the bottom off your car, I would never call it a road, 3.3 mile ride from hell down to a somewhat nice beach. I can't remember if we ever even saw the lighthouse.

One of the most beautiful places that we have ever visited. It was not easy to get there, but well worth the bumps in the road.

Absolutely unbelievable beach where you can watch the 2 bodies of water come together. Only drawback is that you need a 4 wheel drive to get here.

Two amazing beaches and great snorkeling, but be ready for an off-road drive. Very secluded but someone did have their truck window broken the day after we were there.

The road to get here is horrible. Please do not come here in a car or a low vehicle, you will get banged up. The rocky terrain will discourage you but believee it is worth it. The beach is beautiful with pink sand.

In the USA, this would be a National Park or Seashore. Great Bahamian Beach. Challenging to get there. Rent an SUV. Plan for a whole day. Take all you need, water, food. Fill up in Rock Sound with gas.

A little rough to get to, but well worth it. Beautiful! Climbed up to the Lighthouse for great views. If you're into photography, this is a must-see spot.
