Freeport at a Glance

The city of Freeport sits on the western edge of the Grand Bahama. The city is home to resorts, motels and plenty of opportunities for golf and diving.

The Bahamas are a great place to relax. Warm water, crystalline sands and picturesque palms make Freeport's beaches fun places to hang out. Beach bars and seafood shacks mean that food and drink are only moments away and can be enjoyed luxuriously from your towel or beach chair.

For those who want up off the sands, diving, golfing and para-sailing are only a few of the activities available to you. Reef diving, wreck diving and swimming with the dolphins are all popular activities.  If you'd like to see the reefs and not get your head wet, consider a glass bottomed boat tour. With nature, comfort and the beach at your fingertips it is hard not to have a good time in Freeport.
