Wow I will never forget this beach! It's probably one of the most beautiful and relaxing beaches I've ever been in! We saw sting rays swimming freely, lots of little fish, starfish and jellyfish. You must visit! It's also empty, our tour group had the beach to ourselves!

Absolutely the most beautiful place I've ever been to. My boyfriend and I were the only two people there when we visited which was very romantic. There are no vendors here (part of what makes this such a wonderful place) so make sure to bring food if you plan to stay for some time. The water wasn't high enough for... More

We just got to gave a glimpse of this beach. We took the nexus tour east end caves. There was a atop at the Gold Rock Beach for 50 minutes, not sure why so short. There is only 1 restaurant or whatever we can call it. It took them 30 minutes to serve a family of 3. The veggie burger... More

We went here around noon when the tide was still high but it was amazing to see how the tide changes the entire beach. The water is extremely shallow and it was amazing to be able to lay down in the middle of the ocean about 150 ft from shore. The water is warm and very clear. It felt very... More

This is a really nice beach but it IS fairly secluded. Location of a lot of filming for Pirates of the Caribbean. You need a rental car or a group to share the expense of a taxi. Draw back are black flies.

Gorgeous beach! And the walk to get there is also beautiful and cool to see the mangroves and fish below the walk way. Go at low tide its great for the little ones they loved looking in the small tide pools and shell collecting, so did us adults. We did try to snorkel at lowtide, but the bottom is sand... More

We stopped here on a cruise tour. We parked across the street where the parking lot for the bat caves are. Be careful crossing the street - there aren't many cars but they do drive very fast on the road so give yourself enough time to cross if you're parked across the street. There could be other parking lots that... More

Gold Rock Beach goes on forever. But the beauty begins with the wooden walkways that go over mangrove swamps, past trees and floral (all marked with the botanical names). By the time you get to the beach it is so quiet, clean and peaceful. The water is light turquoise because the sand is pure white. A little further out, the... More
