"Freeport & Lucaya, Grand Bahama Island" Top 5 Page for this destination The Bahamas by diver-x

The Bahamas Travel Guide: 2,083 reviews and 4,705 photos

We spent a week at a time-share on Grand Bahama Island in Sept 2002. Freeport and Lucaya are the main tourist areas on Grand Bahama, and are typical Caribbean resort spots. We were scuba-diving most of the time during the day, so we didn't get to see a lot of the island, but it didn't really seem as if there was much to see anyway. I'd recommend Grand Bahama Island to people who like to spend all of their time on or in the water or those who enjoy staying on a resort. Backpackers can skip this one.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great beaches, nice resorts, above average scuba diving.
  • Cons:Expensive, not much to see on land.
  • In a nutshell:Great place to get away from it all.

    I also came across this place while we were there. It was nice, we didnt have a kayak but we swam in it. The current was kind of strong when we were there so be careful!

    I'm way too chicken to scuba dive, but I could use some snorkeling, sun and crystal blue water right now--your page makes me long for the Caribbean!!

    Wow, sounds like a great vacation, except for the 'dinner & show package'!! Yikes! We're off to Abaco (the out-Islands) this summer ourselves, so enjoyed your tips & pics! Penny

    I'm going here in July, diving. This time, we will know how to work that underwater camera, thanks for the diving tips, I looked because of your handle. See the travelogues for the GBR in Oz under my Cairns page for so-so pics.

    Thanks for the warning about the Dinner-Show. Sounds excruciating. At least the diving is good though!
