Best beach in the bahamas! Definitely plan to go there at low tide because it makes a difference. The sand is super-fine and soft and the water is really shallow which makes it great for all levels of swimmers. At low tide small sandbars appear which are fun to play on. The beach is a little far from the main... More

The best ”private” beach in a public national park. One local nailed the description when he said that it was the best place on the island to play ”Tarzan and Jane”!

This place is beautiful, clean and secluded enough. The water is clear and warm. Great for swimming or snorkeling. There is a sign stating no life guard on duty though.

This beach is what Lucayan National Park is all about. Don't visit the island without making plans to see the most beautiful beach you have ever visited. Wildlife is amazing. Starfish, sting rays, and more. Pack a picnic and you won't be disappointed! They charge $5 per person for entry into the national park. Worth every penny,

Amazing beach. The white sand beach that you must see in life. we went there and spent more than 5 hours. dint feel like leaving the beach. The turquoise blue water, pristine shoreline and the a very calm atmosphere, so much tranquility. You cannot ask for more. This beach should have been rated amongst the best beaches in world. I...

I stumbled upon this beach by accident after looking for the caverns. What a beautiful place! After tracking through the mangrove and arriving here I thought I was in paradise! There were only a couple of people here when I visited and it looks now like it has become a busy cruise ship attraction. Breathtaking and very romantic :)

we stumbled upon this beach after visiting the Lucayan National Park and the sandbars were out of this world. This beach at low tide was so beautiful and the sand bars went out for hundreds of yards. This beach is not near the main tourists parts and because of that was almost deserted. The water was also the clearest I... More

This beach is like so many others that you don't have to pay to go to. Good beach but not the best!!! Can be crowded with cruise folks!!!!
