Grand Bahama Great Itineraries

If You Have 3 Days

Rent a car for easy island touring at your own pace and schedule. Have breakfast and book tomorrow's dolphin or shark excursion at UNEXSO. Drive east along Grand Bahama Highway for a day's worth of adventures: Stop at Owl's Hole for a quick cliff jump and cool off in the natural pool. Stop and wander around Lucayan National Park through the caves and along the boardwalks to Gold Rock Beach for swimming and beach time. Continue east to Bishop's Place in High Rock for a late lunch and cold drink. End the night back in Lucaya with a fish fry or beach bonfire. On Day 2, after your morning UNEXSO experience, head to Banana Bay on Fortune Beach to have lunch and unwind. For your evening's entertainment, stroll through Port Lucaya Marketplace, have drinks at Pelican Bay's Bones Bar, then dine on the dock at Flying Fish Modern Seafood. On Day 3, drive to West End for the day, stopping at Lover's Beach for sea glass, Paradise Cove for a good snorkel around Deadman's Reef, and on to West End's northeastern water's edge to sample a variety of fresh, made-in-front-of-you conch salads and fritters. End the night with dinner at East Sushi at Pier One to watch the sunset and the sharks.

If You Have 5 Days

Book ecotours on Days 4 and 5 to kayak through the mangroves, bicycle from Garden of the Groves, snorkel around Peterson Cay, or feed stingrays around Sandy Cay. Reserve one night's dinner at Cappuccino's Italian Restaurant and the other aboard the Bahama Mama for a sunset dinner cruise.

If You Have 7 Days

Save your last two days for more private, quiet relaxation away from the tourist crowds at one of Grand Bahama's far-end resorts: Old Bahama Bay at the West End, or Deep Water Cay on the East End. If two day's time on a beach lounger or hammock is too slow for you, these two resorts have access to some of the best fishing on the island, along with the best fishing guides, too.
