Grand Bahama is one of the major tourist islands in the Bahamas, best known for its cruise port and outdoor shopping market.  Thanks to its popularity, this is one of the few islands where you'll find several cultural attractions to offer a bit of change from the prevalence of natural sites.  Those are available here, as are the ever important beaches, and even a casino.


Lucayan Beach

You will discover an abundance of beaches to visit on the island. Regardless of whether you prefer being around other people, or you'd rather have more of the beach to yourself, you can find a beach that appeals to you. You can click on the beach names for a detailed review of that section of the coast.

Lucayan Beach: You'll find the beach opposite the Port Lucaya hotels, east of Coral Beach. From Royal Palm Way, the beach is at the end of any number of residential roads, all of which are called Sea (Something) Lane - Sea Breeze, Sea Grape, etc.

A second option for beach-goers to consider is Taino Beach. From the E Sunshine Hwy, head south on Arden Forest Rd. At the end of the road, take on right on W Beach Rd, then your first right after the bridge.

Gold Rock Beach: It takes a bit of a drive to reach this secluded spot inside Lucayan National Park, but you'll be happy you did. It's about 45 min drive from Lucayan.
