Freeport, Grand Bahamas - Bahamas without the crowds

A number of years ago someone suggested I had a look at The Bahamas as an area to buy a vacation home. I arrived in The Bahamas at Nassau spent a few days looking around and looking at property and decided it was pretty crowded, a little dirty for my taste and came to the conclusion Bahamas was not for me. Then my realtor suggested I looked at Freeport being a little naive I asked what part of the Island Freeport was situated, of course only to be informed politely it was a different Island!! Now of course since living here I have learned that there are over 700 Islands making up the Bahamas.

I arrived in Freeport, and boy what a difference!! Two lane roads (but NO traffic, rush hour here seems to consists of 5/6 cars at the traffic lights at 9.00 am)

An island that is 30 miles by 12 miles but with only 30,000 people, great shops, lots of duty free!!!

There are also a couple of very large hotels, including the Westin and Sheraton, with their own Casino for those who fancy a flutter and dozens of great restaurants catering for every taste. The only down side of the duty free shopping is that my good lady wife is always spending money in the jewellery shops, but I have to admit the prices are great!!

The beaches away from the hotels are deserted, and after taking the dog for a walk in the morning, when I come back in the evening often the only foot prints in the sand are the ones I left there that morning!! But for those who want Jet Ski’s, booze cruises, scuba or EVEN diving to feed the sharks, it's all here in Freeport

We call one of our homes paradise, it would be more correct to call them all paradise, I am sure one day Freeport will become the bustling city that I found in Nassau but until then I strongly suggest to anyone looking for an inexpensive holiday to give serious consideration to enjoying this little piece of paradise that has still not been discovered despite it being only 30 miles from Florida!!

Whatever kind of holiday you are seeking, Freeport has it all, but one of its best highlights are the people; very warm, very genuine people who really understand that the tourist industry is very important for the Islands survival, something which I personally feel makes a good holiday into a destination you return to time and again.

Visit to "Paradise" Aug 2017

5 of 5
Paradise Villa is a small piece of heaven tucked in the corner of Fortune Beach. If the sea weed was raked more often, you would be steps away from your back door to one of the most relaxing, peaceful, picturesque beaches in the world. The ocean is perfect, with clear waters and soft waves nipping the shore line. The ocean is awesome for snorkeling. An amateur could easily give it a try. It is a very short walk to Banana Bay, a local hot spot for dining. It does close at 5 pm, so go for lunch or an early dinner. For dinner though, I suggest you book Andrew to cook and serve you an authentic Bahamian meal right in Paradise. He is also a wealth of information. On Wed and Fri nights there is a local fish fry at Smith Point - it was a chance to see more of the local culture. Friday nights at Port Lucaya Marketplace is lively too. The Marketplace is the best for restaurants and shopping. Island Yogurt there is a must. Paradise Cove and Gold Rock Beach are two great beaches to see as well.
