Grand Bahama Island Travel

Despite the name, Grand Bahama has always run second to bigger, more glamorous Nassau. Yet if you’re looking for a laid-back, affordable getaway with a minimum of fuss, this is your place. The streets of Freeport, its main city, and Lucaya are wide and calm. Its golden beaches and aquamarine waters are rarely overcrowded, even in high season. The frequent cruise-ship arrivals ensure that all the amenities of a perfect vacation – dive shops, restaurants, pubs, boutiques – are all within a few blocks. No wonder Grand Bahama has become so popular with cruise-ship tourists and families on quick weekend breaks.

There’s something for everyone on Grand Bahama Island. With a distinct mix of historic appeal, modern attractions and ecological wonders, your visit is sure to be memorable. On Grand Bahama Island, you can combine a glamorous vacation at an upscale resort with the charming allure of a small town. Boasting one of the world’s largest underwater cave systems, three national parks, endless beaches and crisp blue water, Grand Bahama Island has it all.

Outside the city, the 85-mile-long island is an unexplored playground of mangrove swamps, sea caves and sandy cays. There’s world-class diving and snorkeling, great kayaking and fishing. All this just a hop, skip and 55-mile jump from the US.  Visit The Best Beaches in the Bahamas Guide for information on all of the Grand Bahama beaches.

Traveling to Grand Bahama Island

To fly into the Bahamas, United States citizens are not required to present a valid passport. Instead, vacationers traveling by air must show proof of citizenship and identification. Typically, guests must present a birth certificate and a government-issued photo identification in order to enter the Bahamas, according to the United States Department of State (travel.state.gov).  Although a United States passport is not required to enter the Bahamas, Americas will be required to present their valid passport upon returning to the United States. When flying to and from the Bahamas, many airlines require guests to show their U.S. passport.

For those traveling to the island, the best way to do so is to fly directly to Grand Bahama International Airport in Freeport, or take a connecting flight from another major Bahamian airport.  Grand Bahama International Airport is the largest airport on Grand Bahama Island and located in the city of Freeport on the western end of the island. Grand Bahama International is serviced by a half dozen airlines.  American Airlines, Delta Airlines and BahamasAir are the top three airlines with flights into Freeport.  Other airlines include British Airways, JetBlue, United Airlines, and Silver Airways.  Receive Low Fare Alerts for Flights with Airfarewatchdog

Getting Around Grand Bahama Island

Vacationers can get around Grand Bahama Island a variety of ways: taxi cabs, rental cars, motor scooters and jitney buses are available throughout the island. If you are driving, remember to drive on the left side of the road. You may use your own driver’s license for up to three months, and then you are required to obtain a Bahamian license. If you are driving or riding on motor scooter, be sure to wear a protective helmet.

By Taxi

The taxis on Grand Bahama Island are typically found at hotels, the airport, Port Lucaya Marketplace and other tourist areas. Meter fares begin at $3.00 and additional miles are $0.40 each. There is also an additional charge for every passenger over the age of two.

By Car

If you plan to confine your exploration to the center of Freeport, with its International Bazaar, and Lucaya, with its beaches, you can rely on public transportation. However, if you’d like to explore the rest of the island (perhaps to find a more secluded beach), a rental car is the way to go. Terrain here is universally flat, a fact that’s appreciated by drivers trying to conserve gasoline. Avis is the best rental car company which maintains an office in a small bungalow near Grand Bahama International Airport. From inside the terminal, an employee with the company will contact a colleague, who will direct you to the curb outside the baggage pickup point. Then someone will arrive in a company car or van to drive you to the car pickup location.  Rates start at $60 per day for a car with a manual transmission, or $75 for an automatic. Mileage is unlimited, but the collision damage waiver (CDW) costs another $17 per day.

By Bus

Taking the public bus is a fantastic way to see the sights and mingle with local Bahamians. Local transportation operates from 7am until sunset. Bus fare is $1.00 in the Freeport/Lucaya area and $2.00 in the West and East End areas. Grand Bahama’s public transportation is also a great way to get to Port Lucaya Marketplace with no fuss or worries.

By Scooter & Motorized Vehicles

Are you looking for a perfect spot to enjoy a sunset or yearning to get away from the island excitement for a moment of solitude? Renting a motorized scooter is an ideal transportation alternative that will get you to your destination while you enjoy the island coastline.  Most of Grand Bahama Island is flat with well-paved roads. Scooters can be rented at most hotels or, for cruise-ship passengers, in the Freeport Harbor area. You can also find dozens of stands along the roads in Freeport and Lucaya, as well as in major parking lots, charging from $40 to $65 per day. Helmets are required and provided by the outfitter.

Grand Bahama Island’s reputation as a diver’s paradise has been growing ever since the earliest episodes of Sea Hunt were filmed here in the late 1950s.  When you dive deep into the crystal clear waters of Grand Bahama, you’ll find detailed coral gardens, playful dolphins and inviting blue spaces. There is so much to discover beyond the beach! Oddly enough, many people barely enter this magical world. Instead, they seem to prefer other land-based adventures like relaxing in a chair by the pool and catching some rays or trying their luck at the casino, or. Trust us—if you go out on a dive boat, you’ll be completely captivated by everything you see in this amazing underwater world.  To book your diving adventure, contact the following vendors:

Some tours feature fine dining, beach parties and magnificent sunset views.  To book a sailing or boating expedition, contact one of the following vendors:

Parasailing & Windsurfing

Not only is parasailing a thrilling experience, it’s probably the best way to get an unobstructed view of Grand Bahama Island. If you’ve never para sailed before, you are in for a most memorable experience. After you are attached to a harness and parachute, a speed-boat offshore pulls you 400 feet into the air for a spin. Truly exhilarating! The views will be so breathtaking; you’ll forget how high in the air you actually are. Parasailing concessions are located on both Xanadu and Lucaya beaches.  If you’ve got a good sense of balance, you will surely find windsurfing to be one of the most relaxing and stimulating watersports around.

Most resorts and hotels offer jet-ski rentals and tours, as well as water-skiing and banana boat rentals if you’re looking for even more excitement on the water.  But if you’re in search of something a little slower paced, then we have just the answer!

    I wasn’t aware Bahama can be accessible from US . Just by reading through comments, I noticed you mentioning that from Miami it can be reached by Ferry. I’m already planning my summer trip in my head!

    I’m glad I ran across your site and this article. Now I want to go to the Grand Bahama Island. I usually go to Grand Cayman, but my next beach trip will be to the Bahamas. I’m so glad to know you can take a ferry from Miami since I’m a white-knuckle flyer.

      Yes, and it is really a short trip. My son and I plan on taking the ferry this year. It is really not too expensive, but oh so fun! You will enjoy for sure. Thanks for reading all about Grand Bahama Island Travel!

    I had no idea Grand Bahama was so close to the US. Can you take a ferry there? If you had your own boat could you just go over to the island?

    Sounds like a really great place to visit. I am going down to Riviera Maya soon, but I may just plan my next trip to Grand Bahama.

    I see you mentioned in another comment that crime is pretty low. That’s good!

      Actually yes you can take the ferry! From Miami it is about a 3 hour ride and you can also take your own boat there. I am actually planning a ferry ride there. The trip is $90, so you can’t really beat that! Great way to go. Flying from Miami is not too expensive either. Thanks for visiting Grand Bahama Island Travel!

    Grand Bahama looks like a beautiful place. However, I don’t think I’ve ever been in the area. Last time I went out of the country was on a cruise a few years ago to San Juan and St. Thomas. I will definitely add this to my places to visit.

    Reply
    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      This is in that area 🙂 Although not a cruise port that I know of. And that is what makes this a great beach travel destination. It’s beautiful, has wonderful beaches and will be a little less crowded. If you decide to go, please let me know if there is any way I can help! Thanks for visiting Grand Bahama Island Travel!

    My wife and I are looking to take a vacation to the Caribbean this fall. We have really had a hard time pinning down exactly where to go. I love the idea of Grand Bahama. This sounds like a great destination, with lots of fun things to do, and maybe not as crowded as some of the other islands. Very timely post and you have so much information!! Diving and windsurfing are two things I have been wanting to do my whole life. My wife is very interested in the culinary scene. This sounds like it’s going to be a fantastic place for us. Can you tell I am excited? Do you think it is necessary to rent a car?

    Reply
    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Yes, I can tell you are excited 🙂 And no, I don’t think a rental car is necessary. You can get anywhere you want, and the taxis are going to end up being much cheaper for you, along with less stress of driving in a foreign country. Please let me know if you need any additional information. Thank you for reading Grand Bahama Island Travel.

    Wow, Grand Bahama sounds great with the tropical feel and fewer tourists! I am definitely be going in the middle of winter when the temperatures are cooler. I love to snorkel and scuba dive so I am sure I would have a ball! It looks like the hurricanes will be missing the Bahamas luckily so travel should be able to carry on!

    Thanks for this detailed description of all the activities, places, and attractions. It will be very helpful for us when we are ready to head there.

    What an amazing amount of information regarding a holiday to the Bahama’s. I have never been there myself but for anyone planning a get away would have a great understanding of how to get there and have a fun and exciting time.
    I noticed many attractions for teens and adults, I’m curious to know if there is anything for children aged 0-10? (play parks, water spray parks, Etc.)
    If I was to travel there, I would be pleased with being on a boat in the beautiful blue water.

      Thanks for reading and glad you enjoyed!   No, you are not going to find play parks and water spray parks.  They will have to enjoy nature, playing in the sand, seeing all of the wildlife and that sort of thing.  The water is amazing in the Bahamas!  I would agree!

    Hi Lea,

    What a great article, I just love it!
    The Bahamas is such a beautiful destination. I would like to go there. I’ve heard though, that the Bahamas is a winter holiday spot. Many people said that the hurricane occurs between Jun and November. Is that right?
    Maybe it’s only for people who go sailing?
    However, I am bookmarking this page so that I can organise my next trip to the Bahamas.
    Thank you for this in depth article!

      I am glad you enjoyed reading.  Yes, you are correct that the hurricane season is from June thru November.  But keep in mind that generally this is a pretty rare occurrence and this should not stop you at all from making plans during this time.  You will absolutely love Grand Bahama Island and all the wonderful beaches there.

    Grand Bahama Island is one of those places I’ve always wanted to go to but haven’t got around to yet. It looks great and there seems plenty to do.

    In general, I’m assuming it’s a pretty safe place with low crime rates, etc. Am I right? Or are there some areas that need to be avoided?

    Reply
    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      No, you are assuming correct.  It is really pretty safe anywhere to go on the island.  Of course, it is always good to be cautious when traveling.  Thanks for visiting Al and come back and visit BeachTravelDestinations.com again soon!
