Welcome to the island of Grand Bahama
Full of beauty, charm and history Grand Bahama is known as one of the most sought after vacation destinations in the world. When you visit Grand Bahama you can easily combine a glamorous vacation at one of the many up-scale resorts with the charming feel of the small towns where you can enjoy a day mixing with the welcoming and charming locals.
Tourism is the main industry on Grand Bahama island, with the resort area of Port Lucaya and visits by cruise ships providing the bulk of the activity. Grand Bahama has more communities than most islands making it a top choice for buyers who want to enjoy island life living in a more organized environment.
The wide paved boulevards, manicured roadways, and miles of well-planned waterways that are part of Freeport/Lucaya's very modern infrastructure, got their start back in the mid 1950s when an American entrepreneur named Wallace Groves laid the strong foundation for today's residential and business opportunities. Wallace's original vision of a professionally designed and planned community, complete with clean water, state-of-the-art power and utilities, cutting-edge technology and communications all carefully nestled within the abundant natural beauty of Grand Bahama is still alive and well today: clearly visible in an island infrastructure that is second to none in the region. It is truly remarkable in this day and age to find an unspoiled place with virtually no pollution or traffic congestion, only a 35 minute plane ride from South Florida.
With an unparalleled lifestyle, and the chance to get in on the ground floor of some tremendous growth, the unique appeal of Grand Bahama Island is just beginning to be fully discovered, and it often reminds them of a more well-designed approach to the kind of opportunities they saw 60 years ago in Florida.
A big part of Grand Bahama's magnetic attraction is the way it blends the best of both worlds. It has all the basic ingredients of a tropical paradise: year-round warm temperatures, sandy white beaches, swaying palms, championship golf courses, and those gorgeous crystal-clear aqua waters.
Located just off Florida's southern shores, a mere 68 nautical miles from Fort Lauderdale, Miami, & Palm Beach, the island of Grand Bahama is beautifully situated to put you in a relaxed, charming get-away-from-it-all island, while still keeping you only a hop-skip away from all the options and fast-paced world of South Florida or the east coast of the United States. It's a combination of geography and laidback luxury that's not commonly found. Well-traveled people from all over the world have fallen in love with this unbeatable combination of amenities and location to call Grand Bahama their ideal second home.
