Are you tired of the same vacation spot?  The same hotels and beaches and are you ready for a wonderful beach vacation?  Then it is time for you to check out The Grand Bahamas Island.  This Caribbean island is just 55 miles off the coast of southern Florida and easy to get to, but more importantly it is a beautiful setting for a relaxing vacation get-away.  This Island is beach lover’s paradise, whether it is peace and serenity or the action of water sports, The Grand Bahamas Island is surrounded beautiful beaches and crystal clear water.

Most resorts and hotels have their own section of beach; The Our Lucaya Reef Village has a 7 mile stretch of beach which is meticulously tended to and their guests can enjoy the shady from the palm trees and umbrellas while looking out into the horizon.  This resort offers an all-inclusive vacation package which includes all food, beverages, taxes and gratuities, so while you are soaking up the rays enjoy an intoxicating frozen island beverage and take in the view. 

The Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach is another resort with spectacular beach access and offers an all-inclusive vacation package.  This ocean view is a cove tucked away off the beaten path and is surrounded by white sand.  This is a beautiful beach where the guest can enjoy their all-inclusive vacation benefits and walk directly into the water for a snorkeling adventure.

And yet is you don’t stay at either of these resorts or you looking to head out and discover the Island’s beaches for yourself you will not be disappointed.  The Grand Bahamas Island has enough beaches for everyone.  Once you have left the Freeport/Lucaya area you can stop along the road and get on to the beach; there are no restrictions for beach access.

Check out Paradise Cove located at the Deadman’s Reef.  This beach is easy to get to and offers the beach goers loads of things to do from swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and cookouts.  There is even a place to rent or purchase items needed for a day at the beach, and if the mood strikes you could sample some the Island fare or try the famous Bahamas Mamas.

If you would prefer the absolute opposite of Paradise Cove head to the Lucayan National Park to Gold Rock Beach.  This is located at the end of a mile hike through the park but it is totally worth the walk.  Completed private with little nooks created by piles of drift wood line the dunes to give each visitor their own private spot.  The white sand reaches well under the water and can be seen well into the distance.  This a perfect place to escape the tourists and the noise, but bring everything you need because there are no facilities anywhere.

Escape to The Grand Bahamas Island where there are so many wonderful beaches to enjoy you are likely to run out of vacation days before you run out of beaches; and an interesting thing to note is you may never know the name of some of the beaches unless you ask a local because they aren’t well marked.  If you love the sandy and sun put The Grand Bahamas Island as a must see beach destination.
