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.

Positioned in William's Town, Coral Beach is on the South West coast of Grand Bahama Island. You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying very close. Although there are certainly more secluded beaches in the Bahamas than Coral Beach, it has just the right amount of private-feel to appeal to couples and families alike.

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, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.

Since Coral Beach can be found in an area popular for visitors., many try to show up early.

What's Nearby

Attractions

The beach is wonderful, but the surrounding area has a lot to offer, too. Look for it on the South West coast of Grand Bahama Island. It's located near The Reef Club Golf Course, which is situated less than a mile away, and it is one of a number of attractions in the area.

If you want to mix some cultural exploration with your trip to the beach, you should consider a trip to Grand Bahama Museum. This museum is relatively near Coral Beach, and might make a nice break from the midday sun.

If you can't wait to see as many of The Bahamas' attractions as possible, the beach is located near the attractions in the following table.

Whether this spot is full of bodies or practically empty will depend on many factors, including the capacity of nearby hotels. At this beach, you can expect to share the sand with more than a few visitors from lodgings in the area.

Food

If the heat at the beach has you craving a cool cocktail and a bite to eat, there are lots of nearby options when it comes to dining. Groupers Bar and Grill is one of the closest eateries. This restaurant features International food. They have become well-known, however, because of their steak. You could take a cab or probably walk to this restaurant as it's not far off the beach at all.

You may find that Coral Beach is a great fit for your vacation, but maybe you want to see more; if so, the Bahamas offers a variety of beaches for travelers who wish to try elsewhere.
