Grand Bahama Island Sights

Fodor's Review

About 45 miles east of Lucaya and 8 miles from Lucayan National Park, it's worth the extra drive to visit an authentic, old-time island settlement affected only lightly by tourism. Its beach spreads a lovely white blanket of plump sand, with two beach bars for food and drink, including Bishop's Place. Time spent at the bar with Bishop himself (aka Ruben "Bishop" Roberts) and his dog, will make you feel local. Take a walk along the beach and its parallel road (rock outcroppings interrupt the sand in places) past the cemetery to the faux lighthouse that makes a nice photographic punctuation. Although the welcome sign identifies the village as "Home of Hospitality," it holds just two small lodges and offers only simple fried Bahamian fare, albeit the service is friendly and the beer is cold.
