A great beach in a remote section of Grand Bahama Island. Enjoy a quite beach break way from the crowds. See my review in Lucayan NP for more details.

As part of our Grand Bahama Jeep Safari Tour, we stopped to tour the Lacayan Caves and found this absolutely beautiful beach across the street. This beach seems to go on forever and the beautiful clear aqua water was shallow enough to walk out quite a ways before reaching your waist. Shell could be found if you took a walk... More

We visited the caves first then went across to the beach. Would recommend checking out the caves while there. It's historic and pretty. The beach is very beautiful. The water is sooooo enjoyable and it's a very large beach area and not crowded. Be prepared for a bit of a hike to get to the beach. It's a long but... More

Nice shell hunting here! Excellent beach with beautiful water, clean, white sand and calm waves. We spent an hour here swimming and looking for shells. We found some nice pieces of washed up coral. There are no chairs or anywhere to sit though so make sure you bring a beach chair. Also, apparently this is where Pirates of the Caribbean... More

Breathtaking. Stunning. Natural. We visited Gold Rock Beach in December and the weather was beautiful, the water crystal clear but chilly. It did not deter my 10 year old son from jumping in! We visited during high tide and I was nervous because I had read not to visit during high tide. I was thrilled to see that the beach... More

We first visited the caves that were very cool and worth the walk. We then walked through the mangrove to the magical beach that was so clear and beautiful. Found seashells and went snorkeling; saw some fish once I swam out a bit. Not a windy as other parts of the island. A must see.

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

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 to the beach provides an initial view that is stunning! There are no homes or hotels here so it is like stepping back in... More
