Rock Sound Attractions

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.  


You will discover a large number of beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some of the beaches, for people who enjoy the underwater scene. Click on the name of the beach for a detailed review of that part of the coast.

If you like snorkeling, a place with that 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 good choice for those who enjoy snorkeling 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: A bit of a distance from any kind of development and through a forest, visitors to Whiteland Beach will be given the ultimate private experience at this beach from a tropical dream.

Rock Sound and the surrounding areas are home to a full range of beaches. If interested, you can get more details here.
