A Grand Experience
Because of its location just 52 miles from the east coast of Florida, Grand Bahama Island has become one of the most visited of all the Bahamian islands. It has miles of beaches, nature reserves, endless sea vistas, both natural and man-made attractions and amazing golf courses. The long, thin island rambles on for 96 miles, rimmed with towns, villages and cays that offer lasting evidence of the many different people and cultures that have called Grand Bahama Island home.
Its variety of cultural experiences and ecological wonders has blessed the island with an equally impressive variety of vacation adventures for all ages, provided they are young at heart. To fully experience the subtle and dramatic distinctions of the island, be sure to balance sightseeing and a Freeport Cruise. It has one of the world’s largest underwater cave systems, three national parks, endless beaches, emerald green water and enchanting marine life.
