Location
Grand Bahama Island is a mere 52 miles due east of Palm Beach, Florida or about a half-hour by plane. We're the first complete vacation island you'll come to.
Geography
Our island is 96 miles long and 17 miles across at its widest point. However from Freeport or Lucaya, you'll find you're within a few minutes drive of most points of interest.
Language
English is our native tongue, although you'll find we speak it with a pleasant Bahamian lilt.
Currency
The Bahamian dollar is on par with the U.S. dollar. Across the island, you'll find that U.S. currency is widely accepted.

Weather

Temperatures range from average highs of 70 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter months to the low 80s in the summer. Our sub-tropical weather means that temperatures seldom drop below 60 or rise above 90.
Attire
A casual and informal wardrobe is appropriate both day and night. If you want to dress up, you won't feel out of place in our casinos or finer restaurants and nightspots.
Transportation
Rental cars are available at the airport and taxis can be found easily. There are also tour buses and public jitney buses. (And remember, everyone drives on the left.)

Tourist Information
Centers

Centers are conveniently located at the harbour, the airport, Port Lucaya Marketplace and the International Bazaar to offer accurate information, directions and advice.

Medical
Centers

We have one government hospital and three private clinics for in- and out-patient care.
