Grand Bahama Island Travel Guide: 140 reviews and 218 photos

One of the most friendly places I’ve ever been.

On Grand Bahama Island (Freeport), the sea has always provided. The earliest settlers, the Siboney Indians, were a people who lived off conch and fishing, and the shells and jewelry they left behind form the majority of what we know about them. The Lucayans (also called Arawaks) were a broad group of tribes who worked their way up the Caribbean from South America's Amazon between 5 and 7,000 years ago. There are nice beaches where you can snorkel, wind surf, or Para sail. There are also beaches with it's own little Straw Markets for gifts and t-shirts.

Port Lucaya

Freeport is really beautiful. This is Port Lucaya. You can see where one of the Hurricanes has taken away some of the ports edge.

More Hurricane damage to port

Despite the damage, Freeport is alive and doing great!

    Hi Benita! Grand Bahama looks so tempting, especially on a grey, windy morning like this. Happy Birthday from Finland!
