A Tropical Mix of Island Charm, History & Adventure!
The people of Freeport are as warm and welcoming as the wonderful tropical weather. Between the beaches, entertainment and lively Caribbean atmosphere, you’ll wonder what took you so long to get to Freeport! It’s located on Grand Bahama Island, the fourth largest island of the Bahamas, approximately 65 miles off the southeastern coast of Florida in the United States. Freeport/Port Lucaya is a tropical paradise with that exotic far, far away appeal. Larger than New Providence Island (the home of Nassau), there are more stretches of secluded white sand beaches for relaxing and playing around, not to mention, a wider range of areas to explore. Freeport and neighbor city Port Lucaya create a bold island paradise mixed with modern attitude and a dash of colonial charm, as well as endless opportunities for adventure and that keep you busy and incredibly content. Flanked on the east and west by tranquil, secluded beaches, these lively centers hold all of the activities you would expect in the Caribbean: diving, swimming, parasailing, banana-boat rides, snorkeling, fishing, water sports, eco-tours, live entertainment, duty-free shopping, casual to fine dining, gambling and exciting nightlife. In fact, Grand Bahama Island is one of the foremost locations for diving, and it’s also home to one of the oldest underwater cave systems on Earth. Generous, hospitable islanders help you relax, with no worries, and enjoy extraordinary adventures so you have an incredible family holiday. Whether you’re looking for unbeatable, high-energy thrills or a simple respite from the chaos of every-day life, a Freeport family getaway is your ticket to paradise!
Grand Bahama Island is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and one of the most storied islands of the Bahamas. There’s a full range of activities for every personality to seize in Grand Bahama’s Freeport and Port Lucaya. You can hop aboard the world’s only snorkeling catamaran with a rock-climbing wall, deep-sea fish in the best offshore locales or fish for bonefish in the famous Grand Bahama cays, swim with dolphins at a number of encounters, snorkel spectacular reefs and shipwrecks, take a legendary sunset booze cruise, cycle a combination sightseeing and shopping tour, trek the ancient trails or kayak through the Lucayan National Park, or indulge in your own island oasis at Petersons Cay. Grand Bahama Island also boasts the distinction of having the second highest number of native birds out of the 700 islands and cays that make up the Bahamas islands. When you tire of all the adventures and excitement, retreat to one of the quiet, secluded and idyllic beaches or tropical hideaways on the east and west coasts of the island, far from the noise and hustle and bustle of the cities.
