A wonderful international destination that offers both sun kissed beaches and adventure, visiting Grand Bahama Island is quite easy thanks to its close proximity to the United States. One of the great thing about the visiting Grand Bahama Island is that you don't need to learn a new language or exchange any money; you will however have to remember to drive on the left side of the road.

The pace of life is slow and laid back, and that vibe carries throughout the island.

You can pack as much or as little into your days as you like, either way you are sure to have a fabulous time. It is this flexibility that makes visiting Grand Bahamas Island a must do bucket list item.
I spent a fabulous 4 days and 3 nights on the island, and I packed quite a bit into those days. Adventure found me constantly, and loved every minute of it. I took a Brewery tour, went on a jeep safari, swam with dolphins, and ate my weight in seafood. From sun up to well past sun down, I had an amazing time discovering and exploring Grand Bahama Island.
The Grand Lucayan Resort
Upon arrival on the island I quickly passed through immigration and customs, making my way to the Grand Lucayan Resort. The resort, which sits near Port Lucaya and is just a few minutes from the airport, offers both ocean and canal view rooms. Trust me, pay to stay on the ocean side, the views are worth every penny. Sitting on the deck, watching the sun rise or set is an experience in itself. The resort features a large serpentine pool, pristine beach area, kids activities, world class spa, fitness center, restaurants, incredible views, and beautiful rooms. It's so nice that you never have to leave; unless of course you want to. Click the link below to read about each adventure….
