This beach is excellent, especially at low tide. Soft white sand, clear blue-green waters, warm calm waters. No amenities so bring a towel. There was a woman selling drinks, packaged snacks, and home-made banana bread across the street on the cave side. I loved it here!

Beautiful beach and absolutely worth renting a car to get there from the cruise port. Walk over the Mangrove filled swamp with water so clear you can see all the fish in the brackish water. If you have a full day this is the perfect place to spend it.

This beach was the most beautiful beach I'd ever seen. You could walk out so far. No rocks. This is the beach seen in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean. Amazing!!!

The beach is the reason to visit the national park. Gorgeous, and hardly anyone there. We came at low tide, had fun playing in the shallow water and going for a long walk looking for shells. Nice walk to get there from the parking lot, via boardwalks over mangroves. Recommend renting a car to visit.

Make sure you go at LOW TIDE!!! It is beautiful then, otherwise just looks like any other Bahamian beach. Great shallow area to play with kids as well, NO ROCKS!! We found a few sand dollars snorkeling, but otherwise nothing really to see underwater. It is very much just miles and miles of beautiful white sand!!

As part of our shore excursion we were taken to caves and this beach is across the road from them in the Lucayan National Park. A short walk through the mangroves across a wonderful wooden bridge leads you to this wonderful beach. The sand is gloriously soft and the water itself does full justice to what they say about beaches... More

This is a bit of a drive and away from most other tourist destinations. An occasional tourist van. Best to go at low tide. There is a fee to enter ($5.00, I think) and this is strictly a beach venue. No restaurants, bars or vendors of any kind. Bring everything that you need. You'll have a short walk through the... More

We had to go back to that beach second time because it's so peaceful and beautiful. Not a lots of people there. Water is very clear and clean. You need to pay $5 per person to enter. It is a little walk to the beach about 10 minutes. It is located right across the street from Lucayan National Park.
