Bahamas are quite expensive. And Freeport in this sense is no exception. But there are also very comfortable beaches, a clean ocean, plenty of water activities and an endless amount of cocktails in local bars. An ideal place for a romantic trip. Though you should be wary of hurricanes and monitor the weather. But if you arrive in the right season, you get a cool vacation.
Grand Bahama Airport is connected by air with 92 cities in 14 countries. Most flights come here from "American land". The airport consists of two terminals, one of which is intended only for domestic flights. At the same time, you can easily walk between the terminals on foot. But there is little sense in such walks, because there is practically nothing to do at the Grand Bahama airport. There are only a few shops and coffee houses. Although it is the second largest airport in the Bahamas, the traveler will not be impressed with its special scale.
At least, that was before the devastating hurricane in September 2019. During the hurricane, the airport was almost completely flooded, and afterwards remained heavily destroyed. Therefore, in the near future, amenities on arrival in Freeport should not be expected at all. While the airport management company evaluates the level of damage and tidies up what is possible. But in the future, the airport will need to be reconstructed, which will probably take several years.
The best way to get from Grand Bahamas airport to the center of Freeport is to arrange a transfer in advance with the hotel. Almost all hotels have this option. As you will not find other buses at the airport, a transfer is one of two alternatives to public transfer.
The second alternative is a taxi. You can order it right at the airport. Or arrange with taxi drivers right at the exit from the terminal, where they wait for travelers. Trains will take no more than half an hour depending on the distance, and will cost about 15-20 dollars.
Although there are not as many attractions in Freeport as, for example, in Nassau, there are also fewer tourists. You can calmly lay down your sides on the beaches while drinking coconut water. And yet you will not have to get completely bored in Freeport either. Because there are a dozen interesting places for thorough research.
One of the best entertainment in Freeport is to ride a ship with a transparent bottom and view the colorful underwater world. A large coral reef is formed around the Bahamas. In addition, there were many shipwrecks, the consequences of which can be considered even without scuba diving. In addition, while taking a boat trip, you can explore Freeport and see the medieval castle on its coast from the ocean.
The tropical beauty of Freeport can be seen while riding a catamaran. It offers full one-day tours filled with various activities. For example, after a quick walk along the coast in one of the quiet harbors, you can put on a mask and dive for stunning underwater views. And after that, at the end of the walk, they will organize a sea dinner with relaxing island music. And all this accompanied by an amazing Bahamian sunset.
Like on any island, in Freeport it is best to eat fresh seafood in a variety of forms and seize it all with exotic fruits for dessert. Almost every corner here sells freshly caught lobsters. Instead of water, tourists buy coconuts in large quantities.
In addition, in Freeport you can find a huge number of restaurants with cuisines of different nations. Here you can find Italian pasta, classic British breakfasts, a huge number of Japanese restaurants and various American dishes. Since the bulk of local tourists flies in from the United States, many restaurants serve fish burgers here. In general, all local food is often a combination of traditional dishes from around the world with typical Bahamian products.
