Postcard: Gold Rock Beach, Grand Bahama Island

DSC_3808 copy.jpg

Gold Rock Beach, part of the Lucayan National Park on Grand Bahama Island, is a sight for sore eyes. Easily one of the most beautiful in the Caribbean and certainly one of Bahamas’ top five stretches, this beach is actually best seen at low tide (morning to about 1pm). After that, I’m told the water covers the beach and rises up to knee-level.

Whatever you do here, whether swim or frolic on the rippled sand–remember that it’s a protected site, so leave only foot and hand prints.

There’s an entrance fee of $3 at the main entrance to the park. Once you’ve paid, step back out, cross the main road and follow a mangrove path that will lead you directly to this wondrous sight.

Note: As I’ve just returned from back-to-back trips to Guadeloupe Islands and Grand Bahama–while planning my upcoming trip to Belize–I’ll soon recap my travels and updates on the blog. For now, I hope you enjoy the images I will share over the coming weeks, time permitting. Also, stay tuned for release news on my upcoming mini guide Jamaica’s Best Beaches – it’s definitely taking place this month!
