It’s impossible not to relax on Grand Bahama Island.
Neither as populous as Nassau nor as isolated as the smaller islands of the Bahamas, Grand Bahama, just a 35-minute flight from Miami, is easygoing and unpretentious.
Since tourism is the number one industry in the Bahamas (global banking is number two), it’s not surprising that many of the activities on the island are coordinated with cruise ship schedules. But it doesn’t necessarily feel touristy. Everything you’ll do there is infused with a Bahamian spirit.
