Grand Bahama: Where peace comes dropping slow
Suffolk Court, on Grand Bahama Island, has kept the look Mother Nature bestowed on her, besides a few nips and tucks here and there – like the six mile strip that is Freeport; its tax-free capital. But outside Freeport nature spreads its limbs untamed. Ninety miles of golden shores and turquoise seascapes provide a serenity money just can’t buy.
The wild parts of the island; ‘the bush,’ as they are known to locals, are a trophy to adventure, offering exciting opportunities to connect with the adventurer in you. Freeport is peppered with fun loving, eco-minded tour operators; the kind that can take you far underwater and to places like Paradise Cove, Lucayan National Park (named after the Bahamas’ indigenous aborigines) and, of course, to majestic coral reefs. If the mood takes you, you can find a conch, crack it and take it home for dinner.
But, if activity requires more energy that you intended to expend on your Bahaman vacation, you have options. Scores of hidden beaches, secret coves and hush-hush enclaves dot Grand Bahama Island. These are the places to get in touch with stillness; the same peaceful kind that inspired Irish poet Yeates to write the poem, Inisfree. Secret Bahaman hideaways are, like Inisfree, places where “peace comes dropping slow; dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings…” They truly are places where “midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow…”
Whichever your choice, activity or tranquillity, one thing is sure: you’re going to be mesmerized, seduced or, at the least, totally taken with Grand Bahama..
The Ecotourism Association of Grand Bahama works with businesses and organizations across the Island to ensure that tourism here stays Green. The right kind of tourist is encouraged to holiday in Grand Bahama; the kind that cares about the environment and appreciates its magnificence, especially in unique places where visitors can swim with wild dolphins and whales, or swim in tropical coral reefs. The island is dedicated to perpetuating its raw beauty, and calls on tourists to respect this objective. If that sounds like you, we would be delighted to give you more information about our Bahama Condos / vacation rentals or information to assist you in purchasing our Bahama property.
