Rock Sound is a spot in the Bahamas that is frequented by yachters who sail themselves into the marina and spend a few days relaxing on the shore.  Outside of the brightly colored homes and an authentic castle that is set on the island, there isn't much to see here except for palm trees and miles upon miles of seascape.  


Plum Creek Beach

You will find a large selection of beaches to choose from in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some of these beaches, if some members of your party enjoy this relaxing pastime. Click on each beach name for more detail concerning that specific beach.

If you like snorkeling, a beach where that is an option is Northside Beach. The beach is lined with crystal clear water that lets swimmer see the sandy bottom easily. Landside, the beach is free of heavy development, though you will be able to see a few buildings if you look for them.

Another top pick for snorkelers is White Road Beach. While decently close to Rock Sound Airport, car would be the best way to reach hear. However, those accustomed to some lengthy bicycle rides will have no problem reaching the beach.

Whiteland Beach: Whiteland Beach is located right off the road opposite of Charles Bay.

Needless to say, the area is home to a full range of choices for beaches in and around the area. For more details about beaches, see this page.
