1806 reviews and tips of Freeport, Grand Bahama Island




Freeport has a beautiful little diamond hidden on this tiny island! When you get off the ship, hop a taxi and take a cruise across the island to Port Lucaya! There is lots of shopping to be done and the beaches are beautiful! It isn't a well know destination so it's secluded and not too heavily populated by tourists. I found it a few years ago when my whole family took a cruise. My brother and I sat down in a taxi and the driver, Bear, said "where would you like to go?" I replied with, "take me to your favorite spot on the island!" And he took us straight to Port Lucaya. He told us where to find a taxi when returning to port and we were set! A full day of fun without the hoards of people that we faced at other destinations! It was a blast!! I hope this helps but let keep this our little secret! 😉

We booked a day at the beach with an open bar ** thru Carnival **. I can't remember what the name of the beach was in Freeport that we went to. It may have been Taino Beach. The food & drink bar was located right on the beach & the seating under the covered deck was plentiful. There were separate men's & women's showers to shower off the sand or salty water. Maybe we just got lucky by our bus getting there early on because we had no problem getting beach chairs. I do think I heard people who got there way after us say something like all the lay-out chairs were taken, leaving only sit-up chairs. The staff made sure to frequently make their rounds to everyone lounging by the beach & ask if we wanted anything to drink. I don't think more than 5 minutes every went by without someone checking if we needed a drink. I read some reviews that people who booked this excursion were dissatisfied with the alcohol quantity lacking in the drinks at this location, saying the drinks were nothing but su...

Freeport is sadly rundown. I was shocked. We took a private tour of the island and there was nothing left that said "paradise" about it. Nassau, of course, is still wonderful to visit. Whether you take an excursion or walk into town, you get the full caribbean vibe.

It was nothing compared to nassau. We ended up just staying on the boat and enjoying some peace and quite by the pool, so that was actually refreshing

When they tell you something is made in the Bahamas, turn it over and look for the tag that says "Hecho in Mexico" or "Made in China." Just buy the straw goods and wood carvings that are local. Everything else you can get cheaper at your local five and dime... if you even buy it at all.

while my husband went on an excursion to kayak, my girls and I went and enjoyed a shopping trip around the dock and lunch at Senior Frogs. We had a great time!
