Gold Rock Beach, Lucayan National Park

4.8
#3 of 17 in Parks in Grand Bahama Island
Beach Nature / Park
Secluded Gold Rock Beach is famous for its state at low tide, when its shoreline extends for yards into the sea--affording it the nickname of Grand Bahama Island's "welcome mat." A part of the national park, it lies next to the longest underground cave system in the world. Don on some sturdy shoes and venture of into the caves or bring along your snorkel and explore the crystal waters. The longer way from the parking to the beach is through the mangroves, but you can take a shortcut over the wood-slatted bridge. Bring large towels, snacks, and lots of water, since the amenities include only barbecue pits, benches, and picnic tables.

  • Best time to go is when the tide goes out the water is so warm. You can walk way out before you can actually swim. Make sure you have a water proof bag to take since there's nowhere to leave valuables...  more »
  • The first time we went out was at high tide. The second time was low tide and it was like a completely different beach. Beautiful! Easy to get off by yourselves.  more »
  • Not to be missed and just a beautiful beach and location. One of the best beaches in Grand Bahama Island.  more »
