Living on this small island of Grand Bahama, in the City of Freeport never ceases to amaze me.
But I'm not alone as I've grown to discover, there are quite a few of us here. We who have chosen to make Grand Bahama our home. We come from all the world: Europe, Africa, America, Asia. There is something very magical about GB and this makes itself slowly apparent to you the more times you visit.
Whether you fall in love with Grand Bahama at first sight, or quietly grow to love it after a few vacation dates, there is a certain magnetic quality about this island that keeps people coming back again and again. A big part of the attraction is that Grand Bahama represents the best of both worlds. It has all the basic ingredients of a tropical paradise: year-round sun, 25 miles of sandy white beaches, swaying palms, championship golf courses, and some of the prettiest crystal clear aqua waters in the world. The island is also ideally located just off Florida's fast paced fun-coast, only about 70 miles from Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Finding everything you want in a relaxed, charming, get-away-from-it-all island, so close to the United States, is a combination that's hard to beat. And a combination that has lots of well-traveled people from all over the world choosing Grand Bahama Island as their second home.
Freeport/Lucaya is unique in the entire Caribbean. In Grand Bahama, the enjoyment of relaxed island living is reliably supported by a clean, well-planned, up-to-date infrastructure that lets you truly relax, knowing the basics are already taken care of. It is also remarkable in this day and age to find an unspoiled place with no pollution or traffic congestion, only a 30 minute plane ride from South Florida.
Grand Bahama offers an unparalleled lifestyle, and the chance to get in on the ground floor of some tremendous growth. The island is just beginning to be discovered—it often reminds people of the opportunities they saw 40 years ago in Florida.
