Freeport: busy industrial port where Carnival dry docks there ships. Outside the gangway is a little market to sucker in the tourist with vendors selling the same bags and t-shirts that you see at every port. Theres also a Senior Frogs and Cariloha. To leave the port you have to take a 25 minute $5pp each way taxi (van) to Port Luyca. The taxi ride was a tight fit as they jam 14 people into what's basically a little bigger than a mini van. Our driver gave us information about the area, tidbits, facts and answered any questions we had. Once at Port Luyca you'll find even more of the same shops with bags, t-shirts jewelry stores and the usual bars. Across the street is the Raddison hotel and Casino. To get access to the beach without having to pay the hotel access fee requires you to walk down this long, narrow, dirt and puddle filled pathway.
The beach is small and under impressive but the blue water is memorizing as usual.
