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 we could have stayed longer.

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 you.

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 ladder in the pictures. I'm sure it's worth the trip down that ladder for some. I enjoyed the views from above.

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 potable water.
