Freeport Beach Break Excursion Reviews
Freeport was an amazing place and suggest everyone to visit the Lucayan National Park and Gold Rock Beach. They are hidden secrets of the Bahamas and away from tourist beaches!
We went to Hideaway Beach and it was great. It was a short excursion, but well worth the $$. We were able to be at a beach, eat, drink and have a good time. There was a play area for the kids, and opportunity to do volleyball with the staff. I would recommend this excursion to anyone. Additionally would recommend that the excursion be extended for about 4-5 hours.
A very ugly industrial port. No need to get off the boat. The straw market at Lucaya may be better than Nassau, but it remains a straw market with items mostly from China.
Nice private beach by mansions. Too windy that day to enjoy myself.
Paradise Cove Snorkeling. Beach was nice. Fabulous free rum bunch included. Asked for the receipe and they said it was a secret. Wind came up and they offered to return us to the ship and give our money back because they thought it was risky to go in the water. They reduced the charge from $35 to $20 which paid for the taxi ride rt and the beach lounge chair and drink. I thought that was very fair. Would use them again.
We spent the day on the beach at the Grand Lucayan Resort. The beach was beautiful and well kept up. The water was warm, blue and everything you'd expect from the Bahamas. They had people walking up and down the beach selling excursions and jewelry and shells, which was nice because all the jewelry was hand made and unique. We took an hour and walked across the street to the straw market to check out the scene. It was cool. The bar had good drinks and the stores were definitely aimed at tourists, but most of the people were very nice.
I think that it was called Beach Break. Freeport is kind of odd... It seems very industrial. There are a few bars and shops when you dock, but no beach. You have to be bused across the island to a beach. Now it was very well organized. We got informed about the island and even sung to by the bus driver... We arrived at a beach spot that has a full prepared food if you purchase that plan, jet skis, trampoline, volleyball, chess, bathroom facilities the were spot on clean, and showers to cleanup.
We took a very comfortable bus ride with an entertaining and informative driver to the Taino Beach Resort, where we spent about three hours trying to enjoy the beach and the resort pool despite the clouds, wind and cool temperatures. If it had been warmer and less windy, we would have loved this beach. It was lovely and off the beaten path - not very crowded and very family friendly. We liked being part of the resort because we got to use their chairs and enjoy their pool and lazy river.
LOVED it!!!!!! The beach was awesome and their pool had a lazy river and slide. best part was bar/Grotto- Best day ever!
The great weather continued in Freeport, and we enjoyed the day at the Taino Beach resort. Spend the first part of the day on the ocean beach and in the water a bit, before curling up for a nap. After a great lunch, I grabbed a tube and floated around the lazy river three times, with drink in hand! Perfect day! Oh and the bar drinks were strong and awesome!
We took a Scary Taxi Ride to Lucaya Public Beach!! We get to the beach and go to the right to find a LONG WALK TO THE BEACH then we find a spot . The beach is gorgeus but you have to watch for glass and trash cutting ur feet and hands in the sand. BillY'S Resturant has by far the best food. They Conach is the best their . But all they take is cash not cards.
Average resort. Slow understaffed bar. Watch your tap they double charge stuff hoping you'll get drunk and just pay without checking. Credit cards ONLY no USD.
Spent the day at the Taino Beach Club. Highly recommend if you just want to soak up the sun and swim!
Did a beach pass at the Grand Lucayan for $15. Access to their infinity pool, private beach, cushioned chairs, hammocks, bar, bathrooms, showers, etc. Wonderful! BUT bring towels from the ship!
The Grand Lucayan was beautiful. The pool was sparkling and clean! The beach area was amazing. The food served for the included-lunch was OK.
Wyndham Resort - unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, buffet lunch and beach time. The weather was chilly and windy. The music was mainly rap music by a DJ - expected something a little more Caribbean.
