We wanted to do a little more than go to the beach at a private island on a recent cruise on the Ruby Princess, so we opted for the shore excursion 'Rock Sound, Tarpum Bay, Scenic Drive & Lunch'. Our guide, Nikea, and driver, CoCo, were the epitome of great customer service during our 4-hour trip! The small group of us (maybe 25 on a bus with A/C) braided palm fronds into bookmarks and listened to a talk about how the local herbs and flowers are used for medicinal purposes on the one hour drive to Rock Sound. Along the way, we also stopped to use bathrooms, have a drink, shop locally and look at an ocean hole over 600 feet deep. The tour included a native-style luncheon on a beautiful beach as well as a taste of Junkanoo entertainment. I can't say enough about the kindness, patience and level of pride in their small community the two people leading our group had. We even had enough time upon return to do some swimming. Don't miss this one!

We were here for 5 days - not much in the arena of entertainment, but just a happy, little quiet town, with friendly people, the basic necessities and home to Northside Inn where we stayed....a must while there ~ if only to meet Rose, eat her food, enjoy her beach/views and support the locals :)

Quite a quaint settlement. Good supermarket here by the Shell garage. Also Ocean Hole makes for an interesting visit.

This was a very cute little town. Has a museum on second floor of Mission. It was cool to look at. Locals are very friendly and like to teach what they know.

Rock Sound has seen better times. The main focus is a food market. Not much else. A couple of rather dull souvenir shops.
