Lucaya's capacious and lively shopping complex is on the waterfront across the street from the Grand Lucayan Resort and Treasure Bay Casino. The shopping center, whose walkways are lined with hibiscus, bougainvillea, and croton, has about 100 well-kept establishments, among them waterfront restaurants and bars, water-sports operators, and shops that sell clothes, crystal and china, jewelry, perfumes, and local arts and crafts. The marketplace's centerpiece is Count
Basie Square, where live entertainment featuring Bahamian bands appeals to joyful nighttime crowds every Thursday through Monday. Lively outdoor watering holes line the square, which is also the place to celebrate the holidays: a tree-lighting ceremony takes place in the festively decorated spot at the beginning of December and fireworks highlight New Year's Eve, the Fourth of July, and Bahamian Independence Day, July 10th.
