En route to Gold Rock Beach you'll discover a short trail brimming with tropical flowers, wild birds, and fish. The beach is part of Lucayan National Park, home of the world's longest underwater cave system.

At low tide Gold Rock is lovely and full of unique pearly shells. Locals call the 52 miles of pristine sand their "welcome mat," but most beachgoers head back to the island after a few hours, when the hot sun and scarce facilities become too much to bear.
