  • very off the beaten path no one was there but me and family during our visit here but the beach was amazing lots on sponge and sand dollars  more »
  • I've been to Grand bahamas late March 2017, I knew the reputation of beach and attempted to visit it. Unfortunately the access road was still impassable, uprooted trees were still present by the hurricane of October 2016. Was in a State of total abandonment.

  • Surprisingly deserted beach of great wild beauty. Sea sloping very sweet so well and hot water turquoise takes a little effort to find but with a good card it is possible by car the feet in the sand. THE dream Beach
