Location

Grand Bahama (Freeport)
Sprawling little Freeport on Grand Bahama is home to about half the island's 50,000 people. Although it has no beach, Freeport makes up for it with its cruise port, resorts, and shopping. Nearby Lucaya, with its pleasant beach, has developed as a complimentary resort community to Freeport.
