    Nice way to spend an afternoon, or some part of the day. Tons of plants and birds flitting all around. Still some visible damage from the hurricane. There is a cafe but it was closed due to rain - and the whole park was planning to close. I am a believer that if you advertise hours you should be open during those hours.

    Always wanted to go to the Bahamas; chose Freeport over Nassau for the first trip. Booked a flight/hotel package.

    The flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Freeport was ~30 minutes. Bahamian immigration was easy; I received a 1 week visa. All the airport officials were very easy to speak to.

    After a short taxi ride, I arrived at the Flamingo Hotel and Marina by Taino Beach. This is a complex of four hotels that share a common pool, restaurant, beach area, and other amenities. Note number 1; bring lots of cash. The Bahamian dollar is accepted on a par with the US dollar, and many (taxis) do not accept credit cards.

    My room was on the third floor facing the marina and canal. Note number 2: the hotel has no elevator. Check-in was easy; $20 key deposit. There is a gift shop in the lobby, but open with spotty hours. The room was simple and clean; daily maid service.

    The amenities were very good. The pool is 4.5 feet at its deepest and has a slight current that is great for a flotation device. There is a nice water slide; I tried it. There are plenty of lounge chairs, a shower and lavatories right there. The beach is cleaned every morning that I was there. Jet skis are available to rent.

    During the afternoon, especially when a cruise ship arrives, there are activities provided around the pool area. There is a small playground. The restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch only. A water taxi runs every hour or so to Port Lucaya and back. $8 round trip.

    I relaxed, hung out at the pool, got up early to swim in the ocean at sunrise (beautiful), and took the water taxi to Port Lucaya in the heat of a Sunday afternoon.

    There are SCUBA diving operations nearby. I booked a dive but it was cancelled for lack of enough divers. Oh well, next trip.

    Leaving Freeport was also easy. Everyone I met during these three days was friendly and helpful.

    I shall return...

    With the Casino still closed the Market place was quiet with a number of closed shops. Those that were open and the stall vendors were fine. For a local Greek restaurant Zorba is excellent. Zsa Zsa bar a fun place. All in all if you are in Freeport would recommend stopping at Lucaya.

    Went on a kayak and snorkeling trip with Calabash Eco Adventures and loved the snorkeling around the Cay - completely worth it going out there. Reef is looking very alive with hard corals and an abundance of tropical fish. Had one nurse shark swimming round us towards the end (they're harmless and uninterested in us), and then shortly afterwards found one resting on top of the reef (somewhat unusual as they like to sleep under overhangs/in caves). The resting nurse shark decided it didn't like snorkelers staring at it, and swam away - straight underneath me! I could have touched it if I wanted, but I left it alone - scary and exciting. It was not nesting season for the protected birds, so we didn't see the reason this is a protected area, but you probably don't go to Peterson Cay to see birds.

    One of the two major breweries in The Bahamas, if you are travelling to Grand Bahama and enjoy beer it's worth stopping at the Bahamian Brewery. Makers of Sands Beer, you can tour the brewery, do a tasting, and buy beer to take with you when you leave.

    Buy your tickets at the front desk of the Flamingo Hotel before going to the dock. Leaves on the hour (or there abouts). Returns at 10 minutes after the hour from Pelican Bay dock.

    The first we saw was a massive boulder. Then we enjoyed the ocean and the beach.

    We had fun exploring, but we had to go back to our RV.

    Worthwhile to enjoy!

    Last port of call on our 4 day cruise. There are several local booths in this area. few other places to eat and get a drink. Just a nice little place to walk around and pass a few hours.

    Daddy Brown seems to be a local hero - well-known in the Freeport area. He makes a delicious fresh conch salad, and is very charismatic!

    Great staff. Lots of information. Tour guide provided.

    Why does Trip Advisor require me to use 100 characters??

    The beach is nice but few go there because Xanadu Resort is closed. It's difficult to find the beach unless you are a local and know how to get to it

    Try to get there at low tide. Chop is probably at a minimum and visibility at its best. Probably the best snorkeling on the island. It's $4 to use the facilities, about $20 to rent equipment, and there are sundry other fees for floats, beach chairs and the like. They do have fresh water showers, although I imagine using soap would be frowned upon. Our guide suggested shampooing in the restroom if necessary. Don't forget that sunscreen on your back--It does NOT take long to burn. Better yet, wear a long-sleeve t-shirt. We went on two days two days apart, and the experiences in the water were very different. Don't be afraid to come here twice i yo have the time. It's that nice in the water. Food is reasonable. We recommend the grilled grouper sandwich. They are making an artificial reef out of a couple hundred hollow concrete balls they call "fish condos". Check them out, especially if it's choppy. They may be packed with fish sheltering from the chop. The ones in the middle had the most fish in them when we went, so check them all out. Two black marks: 1) Wifi access is $6. If you are driving, it's nice to be able to plot a course back without having your pocket picked. 2) Lunch orders can get screwed up. It happened to us, and the-customer-is-right is not a thing here. We had to get our tour group owner to go to bat for us.

    Make sure to check out his lovely beach with sugar sands, turquoise water and black coral out croppings. Banana Bay restaurant is located by this beach.
