Noted as the island situated the farest north within the island chain known as The Bahamas, Grand Bahama is a long slender island that is well visited by those traveling from the United States and the rest of the world. With stunning white sand beaches, crystal clear near and off shore waters, a thriving seafood scene, duty-free shopping and lots of tours and excursions to choose from, Grand Bahama Island is a great choice for both those looking to relax and those looking for days filled with high action adventure.
When planning a visit to the island, you'll want to first look at how long you'll be staying. If you're planning on visiting for a week or two (which is very common) then you'll find that you can easily get away with booking half day fishing and scuba diving tours. If you're only visiting for a long weekend or during a cruise stop, then you'll want to focus on taking a scuba diving or snorkeling tour and visiting one of the many impressive beaches.
