Grand Bahama Island
Freeport is the island's largest city and the country's No. 2 tourist destination, after Nassau.
Popular places, like amiable people, are rewarded with many nicknames. Among Freeport's pet names are: Magic City, for the way it was carved out of the bush in 1955 and went on to become a budding metropolis in just one decade: Singapore of the Atlantic, for its vibrant, free-market, industrialized economy; and Queen of Clean, for the island's squeaky-clean highways and byways.
Freeport took its planned-city shape as the dream of American Wallace Groves. The town was designed, at first, for industrial/commercial clout. The community subsequently split into the twin towns of Freeport and Lucaya, the latter being mainly touristic in ambiance and attitude.
Sports aficionados and sun worshippers from all over the globe make a beeline for Grand Bahama's soft, white sands that front posh resort-hotels on the palm-fringed shores of southwestern Grand Bahama Island.
Dolphins and sharks have gold-plated ecotourism offerings. Lucaya's world-famous UNEXSO, acronym for Underwater Explorers Society, is a major mecca for memorable diving.
If you like the idea of travelling around the world in minutes, head for Freeport's International Bazaar. This collection of 80 shops and restaurants features virtual-reality settings in Paris, Spain, the Greek islands, Denmark, Hong Kong and about 10 other exotic locales.
Not to be outdone, Lucaya boasts a waterfront six-acre shopping, dining and entertainment complex with funky architecture and a bandstand centrepiece at lively Count Basie Square. Count Basie was enchanted by Freeport to the extent he built a home there and sought a "jazzy" Bourbon Street N'awlins entertainment theme.
For golfers, this is virtually the Scotland of the Caribbean - with three outstanding 18-hole golf courses. Anyone for tennis? There are at least 50 courts, some with lighting at night. Bring the yacht; there are four first-class marinas. Recent legislation offers tax and other breaks to "yachties".
Grand Bahama is the third-largest Bahama island just 55 miles southeast of Palm Beach. If you are American and a touch homesick, go to a hill in West End. There, on a clear night, you can see the lights of South Florida, U.S.A.
A new multi-million-dollar harbour project in cooperation with Hong Kong entrepreneurs is set to make Freeport one of the world's foremost transshipment terminals. Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH), a subsidiary of $30-billion Hutchison Whampoa of Hong Kong and the world's largest port operator, purchased 50% of Freeport Harbour Company and built a $78-million transshipment container port (second phase in excess of $50-million is imminent). The port will handle the largest container ships afloat.
