Freeport is a true nature-lover’s paradise, when you venture outside of the urban areas. It offers a variety of Ecotourism options, including three national parks. Offshore Peterson Cay is the smallest and only accessible by boat. At the Lucayan National Park, you can see all six of The Bahamas’ ecosystems (the only place in the country), in a relatively untouched state, plus intriguing underwater caves. The second highest number of endemic bird species are found there, in addition to numerous migrating and specialty birds. You'll see many of them while exploring the Rand Nature Center, which is also home to numerous Bahamian plants that early inhabitants used in their daily lives. Be sure to contact one of the island's Eco-tour providers to get up close to the natural wonders, by birdwatching, kayaking through mangroves, snorkeling the reefs, horseback riding through the pine forest, or trekking on the nature trails.
