Located just off the Grand Bahama Highway 26 miles outside of town, Gold Rock beach is touted by the Ministry of Tourism as Grand Bahama's "welcome mat." This secluded beach is accessible via a lovely 10 minute walk through the Lucayan National Park, and is both wide and spectacular, spanning for yards into the sea when the tide is low. The turqoise water is exceptionally clear, calm and shallow, making it a perfect play place for families with young children. Occasional
cruise ship tours visit for a couple hours around midday, but there is enough space that you will never feel crowded. Note however, that the white sandy beach is almost nonexistent when the tide is high and shade is sparse, so time your visit appropriately. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; swimming, walking.
