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'll discover a large number of beaches to choose from in and around the area. Snorkeling is an option at some of these beaches, for vacationers who enjoy this relaxing pastime. Just click on the name of each beach for detailed information about that part of the coast.

A location where snorkeling is a popular is Northside Beach. While not exactly on the northern portion of the island, Northside Beach does not dissapoint those looking for an easily accesible beach that also offers an escape from the crowds. Located centrally on the island, it is an option for anyone searching for the beach that calls to them.

Another top pick for snorkelers is White Road Beach. With one side facing the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean and the other facing the lagoon, White Road Beach is nothing short of beautiful. Those gazing to the East will be able to spot a lighthouse from the beach as well.

Whiteland Beach: Just one of a series of beaches scattered along the Eleuthera coast, Whiteland Beach features an incredibly long stretch of sand with an equally impressive length of shallow clear water.

These are merely a few of your choices. Those interested can find out more by clicking on this link.
