You can also have plenty of fun on the water: Freeport has plenty of kayak, paddleboard, and snorkeling adventures for you and the family to try. If you’re traveling alone or with friends, try the Bahamian Brewery, where you can take a tour and even try some of their beers; or head to the Treasure Bay and try your luck at the slots at this small casino.
Freeport Day Trips
Since Freeport makes up the majority of the Great Bahama Island, there aren’t many day trips you can take without planning for an overnight boat trip. However, there are a few places nearby for you to check out. If you want to spend some time on the beach, head over to Lucaya, a popular tourist destination where you can relax by the ocean, or explore underwater caves and going kayaking in the Lucayan National Park. Planning a day of tourism? Travel to West End, the capital of Great Bahama Island, and home to many fun tourist activities including Old Bahama Bay Resort and Yacht Harbour, where you can try your hand at fishing and other water activities, or just relax by the bay and enjoy food at one of the restaurants in the area.
Whether you plan on staying in Freeport or are thinking about taking a day trip to a different city, we make it easy for you to find the perfect place to stay. If you love to spend time by the beach, we recommend choosing a rental located near the coast, so you’ll only be a short distance away from the ocean at all times. Planning to do some exploring on land? Be sure to check out rentals we have available closer inland to places like the Port Lucaya Marketplace. If you’re thinking about taking a day trip away from the city, we recommend picking rentals further inland north or south of the city, so that way you are located close to the highway wherever you decide to stay.
