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.
Freeport, the largest city, is near popular beaches like Xanadu, and its International Bazaar offers duty-free shopping. Port Lucaya showcases Bahamian music and straw crafts at its Port Lucaya Marketplace.
