Carbonate sand and beachrock are common deposits on the beaches of San Salvador Island, Bahamas. The constituents found in the sands and beachrock are the same. Cementation of beachrock occurs in the intertidal zone. The type of cement present in the beachrock indicates cementation in the marine-meteoric mixing zone.
