Lucaya is the main tourist area on Grand Bahama Island. It has shopping, resorts, golf, watersports, and some great beaches.

If coming on a cruise ship, Lucaya is only a 15 minute ride from the harbour. It is the best place to spend your day on Grand Bahama with a limited amount of time.
If coming to stay on the island for an extended period of time, Lucaya is the main place for resorts. It is a good idea to see the rest of the island also - I wish I had the chance to do this but time was an issue.
I spent about 8 hours on Grand Bahama. After docking at Freeport and consulting with a taxi driver, he recommended Lucaya because of its beaches and shopping as the best place to spend a short day.
