Freeport — By Endless Vacation Rentals

While Nassau is a blend of the old and new, Freeport/Lucaya is a modern planned city on the Island of Grand Bahama. Grand Bahama Island is the second most popular tourist destination in the Bahamas. Here you will find long stretches of deserted clean-white beaches, hotels ranging from ultra luxurious to small boutiques, a major casino, a robust nightlife and world-class scuba diving.

Freeport is the resort center of the Island where most of the action can be found. The eastern and western ends of the island feature quaint settings and have an abundance of “hidden spots” for visitors to discover. Shopping is also a huge draw for Freeport with the centerpiece being the Port Lucaya Marketplace which is filled with duty-free finds from all over the globe.

Grand Bahama Island boasts of more miles of pearly white beaches, and luxurious hotels than the smaller (and more popular) New Providence/Nassau. Unlike Nassau, the less populated outskirts of Grand Bahama Island feature many serene and tranquil surroundings (read deserted) popular among those seeking a day or more of solitude.

For those into nature, Grand Bahama Island is also home to one of the oldest underwater cave systems in the world, located at the Lucayan National Park. Whether you’re looking for modern luxury or want to get away from civilization, Grand Bahama Island and Freeport offers the best of both worlds and Endless Vacation Rentals has a perfect property for either type.
