Nice relaxing Beach

Rock Sound was on the way to the Ocean Hole. We stopped and took a few pictures but found better beaches off the beaten path. There is nothing like having a secluded beach here!

For cruisers, Rock Sound offers great all-around wind protection and the comforts of a small town with a grocery store, available fuel, and some nice restaurants.

We were excited about our visit to the Bahamas but hope that we just chose the wrong island. If all Bahamas' islands are this run down the tourist trade will die. It appears that many of the locals from this island have left to find employment in Nassau on the main island. So many of the properties on this island... More

We went here on part of a tour and it was well worth the trip. It is a really beautiful area with very unusual fish who come up to see you. We fed the fish and just enjoyed the very large waterway that is very, very deep.

We were just passing thru on to Lighthouse Beach but we say enough to know we should have allowed for more time. We stopped to get gas at a convenience store and found it to have almost everything you would need. We saw Ocean Hole and had a nice lunch and then were then on our way. I truly wish... More

Rock Sound is one of our favorite stopping points on our way through the Bahamas. Rock Sound provides superior wind coverage when a cold front goes through the area. One can move from one side of the sound to another for wind protection. Rock Sound also has the friendliest locals that tend to go out of their way to welcome... More

Here we found the Rock Sound Grocery Store. Very good selection of veggies, fruits, meats and staples. Wish we had found it earlier, Worth the drive when you first get there. Also there is a Kalik Beer Store right before it going South. Maike sure if you need beer to shop there, they were the cheapest we found.

While visiting on Eleuthera, we also went to Rock Sound Caves. Walking through the bush, taking pictures along the way (and hoping didn't get lost - LOL), we made our way to the caves. However, I am not fond of heights and going down the ladder to go into the caves was not an option for me. Check out the... More

Rock Sound is not a tourist destination. It's a hometown that happens to be able to carry both the needs of tourists and the life of the residents. There's a small airport and a very good market. If you sail, you'll find a great cove in which to anchor and easy access to food and sundries. You'll have to buy... More

Rock Sound is a small laid back community about 30 minutes south of Governor's Harbour. It has the BEST grocery store on the 110 mile long island! We love Rock Sound!
