What we will do
- Freeport is a city with 26,000 inhabitants located on the southern coast of the island of Grand Bahama and is the second largest city in the archipelago. As the name suggests, Freeport is a free trade area which, together with the efforts of local entrepreneurs, turned it into the second most popular tourist destination after Nassau. The city is very young, booming during the 1950s, so its buildings are all modern.
- Our sightseeing tour by coach will make its way around the city's main points of interest. We pass through the residential and industrial area and reach the Open Air Market.
- After a brief stop, we move south to Port Lucaya, where we have some free time to walk around, relax on the beach or do some shopping in its unique Marketplace. Founded in 1988, this picturesque 48,500 sq. m complex is filled with shops, restaurants and bars. All the shopping is rigorously duty-free. Don't miss the Straw Market, one of the largest in the Caribbean, and the various arts and craft stalls.
