Grand Bahama island

Ultimate guide (July 2024)
Grand Bahama is an island in the Bahamas being the nearest one to Florida. Most of the good beaches are located in Freeport - the main town on the island. There are mainly trees ashore, while palms can be found in hotels only. The sand is white with a good entry into the water. However, most of the beaches suffer from the low tide, when sea water goes far away exposing spectacular shallows with sandbanks. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
