Renowned for stunning powder-white sand, northernmost Grand Bahama delivers world-class diving, snorkelling, kayaking and fishing.
Exuding laid-back charm, Freeport bursts into life during frequent holiday festivals and local events. Culture abounds amidst proud heritage: walk in the footsteps of early inhabitants at Deadman’s Reef - still peppered with artefacts - explore the massive Lucayan Caves favoured by ancient tribes; and visit Leo’s Art Gallery and the Garden of the Groves featuring exquisite work by talented local artists. Beautiful beaches are ubiquitous, with Gold Rock Beach an important part of the protected mangrove ecosystem: low tide brings a spectacular view.
Several fantastic world-class golf courses make sure the island makes a golfer’s tick-list. 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 Treasure Bay Casino lures the international jet-set.
