Do not miss the chance to see this beach if you are on Grand Bahama island! It's very easy to get to and only costs $5 to get onto beach and to see 2 undergound water caves across the street! No need to take a tour, just pack your cooller, food and beach towels and hang out on a spectacular... More

I loved this beach as a teen and I still love it! It's shallow for quite a long way in, its crystal clear, and most of all its warm and very calm. They also filmed part of Pirates of the Caribbean and James Bond here, and every local will tell you that. But I don't care about all that. I... More

Rented a 12 passenger van from Stanley at the Island Jeep and Car rentals shed near the ship pier and on his recommendation went to the park. The caves were OK, the beach is great. Fine sand with a very gradual slope make it a lot of fun and safe for kids. Takes about 35-45 minutes to drive from the... More

After a short walk through the national park (parking & entree fee of 5 dollars) you reach a beautiful beach with a tiny rock visible in the middle of the ocean. I was told that you can snorkel around the rock and see some fishes or if you are lucky a little turtle. But it’s quite the swim out there,... More

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
