We went here on part of a tour and it was well worth the trip. It is a really beautiful area with very unusual fish who come up to see you. We fed the fish and just enjoyed the very large waterway that is very, very deep.

We were just passing thru on to Lighthouse Beach but we say enough to know we should have allowed for more time. We stopped to get gas at a convenience store and found it to have almost everything you would need. We saw Ocean Hole and had a nice lunch and then were then on our way. I truly wish... More

Rock Sound is one of our favorite stopping points on our way through the Bahamas. Rock Sound provides superior wind coverage when a cold front goes through the area. One can move from one side of the sound to another for wind protection. Rock Sound also has the friendliest locals that tend to go out of their way to welcome... More

Here we found the Rock Sound Grocery Store. Very good selection of veggies, fruits, meats and staples. Wish we had found it earlier, Worth the drive when you first get there. Also there is a Kalik Beer Store right before it going South. Maike sure if you need beer to shop there, they were the cheapest we found.

While visiting on Eleuthera, we also went to Rock Sound Caves. Walking through the bush, taking pictures along the way (and hoping didn't get lost - LOL), we made our way to the caves. However, I am not fond of heights and going down the ladder to go into the caves was not an option for me. Check out the... More

Rock Sound is not a tourist destination. It's a hometown that happens to be able to carry both the needs of tourists and the life of the residents. There's a small airport and a very good market. If you sail, you'll find a great cove in which to anchor and easy access to food and sundries. You'll have to buy... More

Rock Sound is a small laid back community about 30 minutes south of Governor's Harbour. It has the BEST grocery store on the 110 mile long island! We love Rock Sound!

One of the few towns. Road right by water. Was nice. We stopped and bought fish from some fisherman cleaning their fish along side the beach near the road. On the calmer side of the island. Nicer town, smaller of course, than Governor's Harbor. Town's were not our destination, going through to different beaches.

Rock Sound is one of the nicest little town on Eleuthera and has the largest community in the island It is situated on the south part of Eleuthera. All the houses are colorful and their garden/yard is full of tropical flowers. Another big important thing: there is the largest supermarket on the island (a really great choice of food and... More

We were disappointed because we wanted to see fish boats returning with their catch. Only 1 came in with just a few fish. I guess the fish are off season too. Could not even find anyone to take us fishing
