Fodor's Review

This single, long stretch of white sand divides into separately named beaches at the intersection of Sea Horse Road and Royal Palm Way. The eastern end is Lucayan Beach, heavily monopolized by the broad spread of the Grand Lucayan and Memories resorts, where nonguests can purchase day passes from either hotel which, in addition to the beach, include use of pools, nonmotorized water equipment, and restaurants. Cruise-ship excursions can add to the crowds on this end. This end of the beach is also interrupted by rocky protrusions at places, so it's not great for strolling. Instead, spend the day swimming, people-watching, feeding jack fish, or doing multiple water sports including snorkel trips out to Rainbow Reef, parasailing, or WaveRunner tours. Near a long-standing conch shack, Billy Joe's and Ocean Motion Watersports, there is no admission fee for the beach. Go west from here along Coral Beach, where the shore widens for easier strolling and the crowds thin considerably on the way to Coral Beach Bar. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (no fee); water sports. Best for: partiers; snorkeling; sunrise; swimming, walking.
