Fodor's Review

Lucaya's capacious and lively shopping complex is on the waterfront across the street from the Grand Lucayan and Memories Beach Resort and Casino. The outdoor shopping center, whose walkways are lined with hibiscus, bougainvillea, and croton, has more than100 well-kept, colorfully painted establishments, among them waterfront restaurants and bars, water-sports operators, and shops that sell clothes, silver, 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 weekend. 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. In February 2015, Port Lucaya Marketplace changed owners and began implementing $2 million of renovations and upgrades, including a lineup of new restaurants and shops.
