"Quaint and quiet, the real Grand Bahama." West End by Arubasun.

West End Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 11 photos

West End was the capital of Grand Bahama Island in the beginning. Today it has a little ghost town touch to it. Home to little over 3,000 people West End a fishermen's town with not much to see or to do. If you would like to experience real Grand Bahamian culture and life you should atleast spend a day there. West End is a 45 minute drive from Freeport and the Lucaya Resort area. You will find fresh konk fish from the ocean, a must try if you are in Grand Bahama as it is the typical national dish there.

Though West End is a sleepy deteriorating town, a hotel was built there 2 years ago to make a differance in that community. The resort employs about 300 people and it is not geared to mass tourism. The resort has unspoiled, uncrowded beaches. The people at the resort are very friendly and you really feel like you have escaped the hustle and bustle of tourism life.
