Grand Bahama is in all respects a tropical island. Although famous for its casinos, hotels and
shopping, the island is deserted enough to qualify as a premier destination. The major yachting facilities, including Ocean Reef Yacht Club, are clustered to the east of the harbour, along the Lucaya waterfront, and there are shops and restaurants in the nearby Port Lucaya Marketplace. The centre of Freeport itself is a five-mile taxi ride inland. Ocean Reef has many activities to offer members and guests including Scuba instruction, pool, air hockey, tennis, volleyball and happy hours.
