Grand Bahama: Beaches & BBQs

In the far north of the Bahamian archipelago lies the splendid island of Grand Bahama, a natural paradise with myriad places for hiking, biking, bird watching, horseback riding and swimming. Year round sub-tropical weather provides the perfect conditions for a yacht charter.
The East End is a relatively untouched and secluded. Here pristine beaches are interspersed with gorgeous caves and secretive coves where flamingos and dolphins mingle with swimmers.
Further natural wonders can be witnessed in one of the three national parks on the island, where rare and exotic birdsong fills the air.

Several fantastic world-class golf courses make sure the island is a golfer’s ticklist. Those keen on water sports will revel in the snorkelling and diving, whilst the sport fishing draws a discerning crowd.

Culturally, Grand Bahama is renowned for its open-air performances on Count Basie Square and the fantastically exotic Junkanoo carnival, where flamboyant costumes and colourful processions fill the streets.

The island’s nightlife is among the best in the Caribbean, with a wide array of elegant clubs, luxurious restaurants and lively bars, while the lavish and loud Treasure Bay Casino lures the international jet-set.
