Grand Bahama Island Local Customs: 9 reviews and 6 photos
This last time we were in the Bahamas, Jill and I had an opportunity to view for ourselves the enormous wealth that exists on the Grand Bahama Island.
Unfortunately, there is a great deal of poverty also. Most of the wealth is in the hands of foreigners who purchased land when it was quite "cheap" and built their vacation homes on the island.
On several occasions, Jill and I just walked behind these private beach locations; thus, we were able to see the huge mansions that were already built or were being built near the Club Fortuna Resort. Interesting, Club Fortuna was originally a privately owned home, but the man (rumor has it) went to prison because of tax evasion and drug connections.
It's always fun to stare at such enormous places; yet, I felt guilty to enjoy it so much when I had also seen the way many of the native Bahamians lived in poverty.
