Freeport, Grand Bahama Island, is the second largest city in the islands. With a steadily growing population, now more than 50,000, Freeport, which adjoins the Lucaya Beach area, is a more modern city than Nassau. The carefully planned and landscaped streets are a product of the sixties, and of the dreams of American entrepreneur and financier, Wallace Groves.
Things to Do in Freeport:
Here's just a small sampling:
Where to Play Golf in Freeport:
There are two great golf courses on Grand Bahama Island: one designed by Dick Wilson, the other by Robert Trent Jones. To miss either one would be, well... a sin?
Where to Stay In Freeport:
Most of the resorts and hotels on Grand Bahama, with a couple of exceptions, offer good, clean accommodations. The big resorts can be compared favorably with any on the planet. The small hotels are typical of what you might expect in the Islands: clean and tidy, but a little lacking in amenities.
Great food, Bahamian cuisine, tropical drinks, and the music of the islands. What more could you want?
