Grand Bahama Island is still recovering from two hurricanes. Beaches nice. Many resorts still closed. There is a free beach access by police station at the Grand Lucayan Resort. Take a $5.00 shuttle $10.00 round trip. (Taxi is around $25.00) When driver turns left by Wendy's about 200 feet there is a small sign for beach access. Driver might "forget' to point out the free access sign. Shopping area across from police station. Ladies selling merchandise are respectful and call you handsome for attention. Ok any nice words I will at least buy a tiger tooth $10 necklace!! Read Less

Take a cab to Dead Man's Reef. Better snorkeling and beach than any you will book through cruise lines. No crowds, local fare, and so many fish and sea turtles to see. Read More

We hired a car for the day so we could get quickly out of the port area (car hire in the port shops when you get off the ship. $75 for the day). We then drove over to Churchill beach next to the Wyndham hotel and it was amazing! Totally quiet, peaceful and some great swimming and snorkelling. Absolutely recommended. Stopped at Port Lucaya marketplace on the way back and its really good. Nice setting and good shops/bars Lovely island! Would go back on a holiday for sure. Read Less

This port is average at best. The cruise ship port for the ship we sailed was limited to a few junk stands. you MUST take a cab to a public beach, or an excursion. would recommend doing an all inclusive beach excursion, as the shopping areas on this island are scarce at best, and there is little to no downtown area to walk around in. If not doing an excursion or a beach getaway (same thing?), stay on the ship - do not go to this port without something planned. Read Less
