WHERE TO STAY
Known to the world as the second-largest city in The Bahamas, Freeport, in Grand Bahama Island developed as a tropical playground for its visitors. Here, you can enjoy a glamorous holiday at an upscale resort, have a life-changing experience visiting cultural and historical sites, and experience the environs of ecological wonders.
Swim alongside Caribbean reef sharks, take a tour of Picasso’s Gallery — a dive spot famous for its vibrant coral heads in the shape of a painter’s palette — or explore sunken shipwrecks that bloom with gorgonian sea fans and swarms of fish.
The Bahamas has long been one of the most eco-friendly destinations in the world—a protector of both the archipelago’s pristine beauty and its endangered species, including the Bahamian Rock Iguana and the West Indian flamingo, the national bird. The critically important work of preserving these natural environments is done by The Bahamas National Trust, an organization noted for its vast wetland conservation efforts on Andros, New Providence, Exuma, Freeport, and Inagua, home to the largest remaining breeding colony of West Indian flamingos.
