Things to Do in Freeport

Without question, playing in the gorgeous water surrounding Grand Bahama Island is one of the most popular activities in Freeport. First off, there are picture-perfect beaches nearly everywhere you turn, with white sand so soft, it pours through your finders like water. It's easy to while away an entire afternoon doing nothing at all besides stretching out under the sun, with your toes in the sand, listening to the water gently lap ashore. But if you want to make a splash, there are a number of ways to do it. There's world-class deep-sea fishing; the islands of the Bahamas are the known for many world-record catches. And Grand Bahama Island is renowned for its crystalline waters, making it a haven for snorkelers. You could also rent a kayak or sailboat for a day of peaceful exploration -- there are also mangroves that are fun to investigate by banana boat. For expert divers, there's a 65-foot reef with caves and caverns that's home to a variety of colorful fish and marine life that is a can't miss. And of course, there's the Blue Hole, which is literally a hole on the sea floor that offers a unique perspective on marine life.

If you'd like to return to terra firma, you still have plenty of things to do in Freeport. For one thing, Grand Bahama Island boasts an impressive number of native bird species, so birding is a natural choice here. We also like Lucayan National Park, where trails lead you through different ecosystems and you can explore two large caves, part of one of the largest underwater cave systems in the world. Please note that swimming in the caves is prohibited.

If shopping is on your to-do list while in the Bahamas, you're in luck. One of our favorite activities in Freeport is spending time strolling through the nearby Port Lucaya Marketplace. You'll find lots of duty-free options for items such as perfume, jewelry and fine linens, along with an excellent selection of locally crafted goods.

Whatever you'd like to do to unwind, Freeport on Grand Bahama Island is sure to have the recipe for relaxation.  Fly to Freeport with American Airlines and let your cares float away with the warm breeze.
