For something different we rented a motor scooter from across the street from the Grand Lucayana for the day, giving us plenty of time to spend on the beach. We read on Tripadvisor that heading east on the scooters, away from the downtown area is a safe journey with little traffic (and even better on the weekends), but I was very careful and slowed down to let cars pass by when safe to do so. The scooters are easy to drive, just take it easy on the corners and keep check your mirrors. Driving on the left was easy to learn (just keep left !) and the roundabouts easy to maneavor. The drivers are very generous and watch out for you.
We got to Gold Rock Beach in the Luycayan National Park in about 45 relaxing minutes.
You can't miss the entrance which is right off the road. You can park in front of a small park building and pay the $5 to tour the area, which includes the caves and the amazing gold rock beach. Before you go, check the tidecharts online for Freeport and if you go at low tide you are treated with a soft white sandy beach that must be at least 100 yards or more in width. It is a natural area and at times we were the only ones on the beach. The park guide said the you are safer on this beach than you are in your own home, which was true. We sat and had a picnic and just wandered for hours, taking photo's and enjoying an incredibly beautiful beach.
