Located on the southwest shore of Eleuthera, Rock Sound has gone from a popular resort area among the rich and famous to a quiet, secluded place to get away. One thing that has remained the same through it all is the calm beaches protected by the nearby coral reef system, which are often so undisturbed that fighting for space in the sand is never an issue.
You'll discover a large selection of beaches to choose from in and around the area. Snorkeling is an option at some locations, if some members of your party enjoy the underwater scene. Click on specific names for a detailed review of that part of the coast.
A beach scene where you may find people snorkeling is 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.
Another top pick for those who enjoy snorkeling is Turtle Beach. You will likely need a rental or personal vehicle that is capable of off-road driving, as the road to Turtle Beach is a little bumpy. While driving is entirely doable, a better option may be to take a boat.
Winding Bay Beach: Frequented mainly by the villa residents that stay right on the sand, Winding Bay Beach is an ideal getaway spot, as you join the tourist who are looking simply to relax and enjoy the tropical breeze.
