Activities in Freeport

Known as the Bahamas “Second City,”  Freeport is a little bit quiet beachside community and a little bit busy tourist town depending on whether or not there is a cruise ship in port.  There is no question that thanks to the International Bazaar and the Port Lucaya Marketplace, the top activity in Freeport is shopping.  At the Marketplace, you can spend hours and even days wandering the stalls of this 12 acre complex looking for handmade goods, souvenirs, snacks, and fine artwork among other things while the Bazaar is known for more international treasures.  

Of course, not everyone will spend their entire time in Freeport shopping.  There is also a golf course, several tennis courts, an eco-attraction called Garden of the Groves that can be explored, and much, much more.
