Coral Beach is neither the most popular beach on the island, nor is it completed deserted either. Guests come to enjoy the clean environment and calm shores.

Located in William's Town, Coral Beach is on the South West coast of Grand Bahama Island. You should consider stopping by regardless of whether you're staying very close. Travelers who'd like to avoid renting a car will probably like Coral Beach. It's convenient to nearby hotels and attractions since it isn't far from the center of the city's action.

How to Access The Beach
Several roads off Royal Palm Way lead to Coral Beach, all of which begin with the word "Sea." These include Sea Fan Lane, Sea Gate Lane, Sea Biscuit Lane, and Sea Shell Lane.

Amenities and Ambiance

White sands stretched out in front of Coral Beach Resort, with stunning turquoise waters lapping the shores, making it a beautiful place to enjoy a day at the beach.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location.

Be mindful that the immediate vicinity around Coral Beach is highly urbanized, so factor that into your plans.
