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.

General information

Bahamas hotels - Pelican Bay Hotel At Lucaya

What to expect: Located near the end of a long, narrow waterway called Bell Channel Bay, the hotel overlooks two marinas on one side and the Bay on the other. The beach is 300 yards away, accessible to guests via an agreement with a neighboring resort. The atmosphere at Pelican Bay is that of a European village, and vacationing families and couples enjoy shopping, dining, and the resort's intimate atmosphere.

Amenity highlights: Pelican Bay guests travel by complimentary shuttle boat to a companion marina to enjoy a poolside restaurant. The hotel has two medium-sized pools, one with an eight-person spa tub. A third pool with swim-up bar will open in January 2004. Flagstone sundecks furnished with cushioned lounge chairs surround the pools. Guests have access to Atlantic Ocean beaches, more pools, extensive recreational facilities, and a large spa and fitness center at the Our Lucaya Resort next door (fee).

Insider tip: Port Lucaya Marketplace, adjacent to Pelican Bay Hotel, includes a waterside bandstand and courtyard where live-music concerts are offered most nights. Shops and restaurants in the marketplace remain open well after dark.

Insider tip: One of two golf courses at Our Lucaya Resort lies approximately 2 blocks away.
