If you want an undeveloped pristine beach then this is it!

We went here as part of a tour from Norwegian Cruise Line and it is 100X more scenic then the port! While the tour of the caves is interesting and lasts 10-15 min, the short hike... read more

The Gold Rock Beach is a Great white sand beach! It's really very long. The water is very shallow, and you will find that turquoise color you've been dreaming of. You might encounter a few Racoons on your way back through the mangrove. They are doing some racket for food 😊 There was no visible (while driving) sign on the... More

Had a wonderful time. Check the tides for the beach on your smartphone in order to ensure the tide is going out during any visit. Only a few others were on the beach today. Grand Bahamas is still recovering from Hurricane Matthew and this was one of the few tourist type activities available. We rented a car and the drive... More

This beach is so beautiful. We drove with the rental car so we weren't with a group. The waters are so clear and beautiful. I loved loved the beach it's probably the most beautiful beach I've been too. We went to the sink hole across the street and then walked over here. You save so much money by just renting... More

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
