A holiday on Grand Bahama from The Co-operative Travel will deliver everything you expect of a dream break in the Caribbean.
Despite the name, Grand Bahama is actually only the fourth largest island of the 20-plus which comprise the Bahamas. It serves up all the ingredients, however, which make for a perfect Caribbean package holiday or all-inclusive holiday, including fantastic beaches nestling in the shade of lush greenery and the dazzling aquamarine Caribbean Sea.
Grand Bahama is not afraid to showcase the natural beauty of its landscape, boasting three national parks, and the largest underwater cave network in the world.
Beaches of glorious coral-white sand can be found all over the island, the most notable including Zanadu Beach, Churchill Beach and Silver Point Beach. Off these and many of the other sandy stretches along the coast, you'll find plenty of opportunities to indulge yourself with excellent watersports facilities, encompassing windsurfing, water-skiing, parascending and scuba diving.
Land-bound sports aren't forgotten either, as the island has numerous attractions showcasing its natural beauties, including the Garden of the Groves with its wonderful botanical gardens, and the Unexso Dolphin Experience, where these highly intelligent and beautiful creatures go through their paces for your pleasure.
The main holiday centres on Grand Bahama are modern, bustling Freetown and the popular beach resort of Lucaya.
Restaurants in both Freeport and Lucaya are plentiful and varied, with local cuisine - boasting a strong emphasis on many types of seafood - easy to find and very good value.
As the name suggests, Freeport is the island's commercial centre, and it is hard to believe that just over 50 years ago, the area these two towns now occupy was a barren spot featuring little but palm trees. Today, it boasts many duty-free shops, and restaurants offering worldwide cuisine.
Quiet and charming fishing villages and deserted, unspoilt beaches, are dotted around the island, making it a great place for beach connoisseurs, golfers, watersports fans or gamblers.
The island offers a great choice of accommodation, from well-regarded all-inclusive holiday resorts, to hotels of all sizes which make an ideal base for self-catering or budget holiday on Grand Bahama. Gambling is a major night-time pursuit on the island, with the excitement of the casino on a balmy evening making for an irresistible combination.
Bars and lounges offer everything from relaxation in the classic style, to a full-on party atmosphere. Head to Count Basie Square in Port Lucaya for live, open-air entertainment every night to set the seal on a memorable Grand Bahama holiday.
