Gold Rock beach is the most beautiful beach I’ve ever experienced anywhere. It is about a 40 minute taxi ride from the port. And no one ventures out that far. It’s part of the National Park so there is a $5pp entry fee. And you...More

It’s so pristine and secluded , you will feel it’s another world altogether . To enter the beach you have to cross the small mangrove forests. They shot Pirates of the Caribbean there.

Nice private beach and nice walk through mangroves. Various markers pointing out trees and across street (where you park) has underground caves. $5 was worth the two hikes and beach.
