The Gold Rock Beach is stretching for many miles, has white sand and no amenities. It is a pristine undeveloped beach, quite secluded and still not much polluted. Gold Rock Beach is part of The Lucayan National Park and is protected by the Bahamas National...More

We were so glad we got to go to Gold Rock beach. It’s very clean & serene. I wish we would have thought to take a picnic lunch.

What a lovely little slice of paradise! We visited this beach 3 times during our 10 day stay on Grand Bahama Island. It is very much worth the entrance price of $5 per person and the 5-10 minute walk on the boardwalk through the mangroves....More

Exceptionally beautiful beach. If you go at high tide you won't see how beautiful it is. It costs $5 per person but is worth it. 5-10 minute walk across the mangroves on a board walk. Red wing black birds will eat out of your hand.Large...More

It depends on what you want to do. If you are looking to snorkel and eat from a true small restaurant, then go to Paradise Cove. It may be crowded on cruise days. If you want seclusion and privacy, go to Gold Rock Beach... More
