“Gold Rock Beach - Beautiful Location”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Gold Rock Beach is a beautiful beach location east of Freeport on Grand Bahama Island. It is part of the Grand Lucayan National Park. The beach is long and quiet and clean. There were few visitors when we were there. It was a quiet piece of paradise.

“Pristine Beach - PARADISE!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Gold Rock Beach is part of the Lucayan National Park - the home of the Lucayan Indian Tribe pre-Christopher Columbus. The history alone offers interesting enough reason to visit the National Park, but the beach makes it completely worth it.

Leading to the beach is a boardwalk above beautiful marshy waters loaded with colorful fish waiting to be fed by passers-by. The beach itself is covered in perfect soft, white sand, crystal clear water, and sand bars every few hundred feet. It's quiet and only costs $5 to visit for a full day. Great beach for swimming and relaxing, but doesn't offer much in the ways of snorkeling.

I highly, highly recommend visiting this dream location.

This is the kind of view you dream about. The water is clear and very shallow at low tide. The surrounding woods are full of friendly raccoon's. You'll feel like a swimsuit model; regardless of size.

“A little piece of Heaven”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

This beach is jaw dropping. Went with a small group of people from our hotel so we had the beach pretty much to ourselves. Crystal clear water, and soft fine sand. Miles of beach.

“MUST SEE if at Grand Bahama”
Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

Phenomenal beach -- truly like paradise. Water is crystal clear and the beach goes on for miles - and sparsely populated with people so you can feel like you have a huge and amazing beach to yourself. Don't waste your time with the crowded tourist and cruise ship scene at Taino Beach which also makes the beach dirty. Rent a car or scooter and go to Lucayan National Park. Pay the $5 entrance fee and walk the trail through the mangroves to the beach. Key is to go around low tide. (We got there a bit early during late high tide so to kill some time we went to Bishop's beach bar and restaurant about 7 miles further east on Grand Bahama Highway to hang with Bishop himself on a beautiful private and clean beach at his beach bar.). Don't forget to bring a towel, water and snacks as the beach is truly secluded so there are no concessions except for a nice lady who sells drinks from her car at the entrance of the trail. You will not regret it. It is truly worth the trip.
