This is a beautiful beach with large driftwood on the beach. The water is crystal clear with white sand. This stop was part of a tour package and I would have liked to spend more time at this beach.

This beach was the best and truly the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. I've been to Mexico, Dominican Republic, Florida and Costa Rica and this beach topped them all. We rented a Jeep on our own and went during low tide. Google this tide chart before you go to ensure you go during low tide or the water... More

Best time to visit is mid afternoon when the tourists from the large group tours have left. This beach is most beautiful at low tide, with miles and miles of white sand

We could have been ripped off, but it was about $150 to get here from the cruise ship port so I recommend you get with a few passengers and split the taxi. BTW, many taxis are big vans. Besides the expense the beach is beautiful! There isn't much shade, but if you walk a little there is some. The best... More

we visited this beach as part of a tour and it is an absolute MUST SEE, the water is warm and the most beautiful blue, and the sand is like flour. You can walk out a bit and sit on the sandbar, water is very shallow. Truly one of the best beaches on the island. Apparently this beach was featured... More

I think it is the most beautiful beach I've ever seen so far. Shallow, clear, calm and turquoise water. I only had 1 hour on that beach as we followed the East End Cave Tour from Sunwing; I would hoped to have more time. We need to pass by a mangrove forest by feet (around 5-10 min walking) which is...

You have to pay to go to the beach here. It is a national park. The caves (2) were not very interesting unless you like to see bats. The beach was clean and plenty of fish in the waters that can be seen without snorkel gear. We even saw a small barracuda.

Short hike from the road uncovers a beautiful Bahamian beach with blue-green waters. A must see while in the Bahamas.

It was kind of hard for us to find it, but I'd read all about it before our trip. If you find the Lucayan National Park sign on the left as you're headed east from Freeport on the Grand Bahama Hwy, park in the parking lot. There's a fee for parking, but it's minimal and worth it. The caves and... More

The most efficient way to enjoy the Lucayan National Park at your own leisure, if you so dare, is to rent a scooter for a day and journey out on a 40 minute, very easy to navigate drive. This is a great way to explore the island at your own pace. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by the national... More
