Coral Beach

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 think about stopping by even if you aren't staying very close. While the Bahamas has more secluded beaches than Coral Beach, it has just the right mix of intimacy and atmosphere to attract beachgoers.

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, restrooms will not be available here, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location.

Bear in mind that Coral Beach's immediate surroundings are rather congested, so factor that into your plans.

What's Nearby


This pleasant stretch of sand known as Coral Beach is on the South West coast of Grand Bahama Island; the area is home to other attractions such as The Reef Club Golf Course, which is less than a mile away.

If you're interested in combining culture with your visit to the beach, you might want to consider visiting Grand Bahama Museum. This museum is relatively near Coral Beach, giving you a chance to see, and learn about, even more of the area.

Cities and Towns

Coral Beach is very close to Port Lucaya, so touring the city could be a fun side-trip after visiting the beach. Guests visiting Coral Beach who are looking for additional places to explore should think about going to Port Lucaya, which is nearby and is an especially active area of the Bahamas. From Coral Beach, Port Lucaya is not far away, roughly one and an eighth miles (a kilometer and a half).

Even after a restful afternoon at the beach, the day isn't truly complete until you dine at a nearby restaurant, where you can dive into The Bahamas' specialty dishes, without having to stray too far. One of the closest places to eat is Groupers Bar and Grill. The restaurant serves International food. Many guests rave about their steak.
