How to Spend 1 Day in Freeport

How to Spend 1 Day in Freeport

Built as a tourist destination for beach seekers in the 1950s, Freeport serves as the gateway to Grand Bahama. With a day to spend on the island, you’ll have time to get a feel for the town, immerse yourself in the turquoise Caribbean waters, and hit the beach. Here are some tips for a 24-hour itinerary.

Morning: Around Town

Kick off your day with a tour of Freeport to learn more about Grand Bahama’s only urban settlement. See the mansions of Millionaire’s Row, visit an open-air fruit market, stroll through the Garden of the Groves, and do some duty-free shopping. If you’d rather get out of town, opt for a round island tour—or hop on an all-terrain vehicle for a guided excursion through jungle and past beaches along the Grand Lucayan Waterway.

Afternoon: Sailing and Snorkeling

No trip to the Caribbean would be complete without some time spent on and in the water. Climb aboard a party boat for a few hours of music, grilled seafood, swimming, and snorkeling, or explore the Bahamian coast on a luxury sailboat instead. Active travelers might consider an afternoon of water sports just off the coast of Freeport—options include jet-ski safaris, shark diving, deep-sea fishing, and kayaking.

Night: Beach Bonfire

Polish off your perfect day in Freeport with an evening bonfire on Taino Beach. These island-style parties typically include a buffet dinner, tropical cocktails, a local DJ spinning tunes, and lots of dancing in the sand. Alternatively, make your way to Port Lucaya Marketplace, where steel bands, gospel singers, and Junkanoo groups take the stage at the vine-covered bandstand almost every night.
