Grand Bahama Island: The Softer Side of the Bahamas Part 1
Close to the U.S., rich with history and a colorful culture, lies Grand Bahama Island. A wonderful international destination that is close to home giving you a great opportunity to visit as often as you'd like. One of the great thing about the Bahamas is that you don't need to learn a new language or exchange any money. However, you will have to remember to drive on the left side of the road.
Grand Bahama Island really is an undiscovered gem in the Bahamas. The people and the island is eagerly waiting to welcome you to their sunny shores. In my opinion, it's a perfect destination for girlfriends, couples, and families, this is, after all, the softer side of the Bahamas.
The pace of life is slow and laid back and that vibe carries throughout the island. No hustle and bustle, no endless traffic, and no crowds. Just a carefree attitude that lets you know this is truly going to be a very relaxing vacation. Stepping off the plane I instantly left my worries behind me. Honestly, when you are in paradise there is no reason to worry about life back home.
Grand Bahama Island offers so much to those looking for soft adventure fun. Jeep tours, dolphin encounters, kayaking, fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, beach combing and so much more or just soak up the sun and relax. Pack as much or as little into your days, either way you are sure to have a fabulous time.
I spent a fabulous 4 days and 3 nights on the island. I packed quite a bit into those days and loved every minute of it. Brewery tour, perfume factory tour, jeep safari, dolphin swim, and an Island tour just to name a few of my wonderful experiences. From sun up to well past sun down I had an amazing time discovery and exploring Grand Bahama Island.
Arriving on the island I quickly passed through immigration and customs and made my way to the Grand Lucayan Resort. The resort, which is in Port Lucaya just a few minutes from the airport, offers ocean view or canal view rooms. Trust me, pay to stay on the ocean side. Sitting on the deck, watching the sun rise or set is an experience in itself. A serpentine pool, large beach area, kids activities, spa, fitness center, restaurants, incredible views and beautiful rooms ensure you'll never have to leave the resort unless you want to.
