Grand Bahama Island

.......................................................................................................................

Grand Bahama Island, approximately 96 miles long west to east and 17 miles at its widest point north to south, is the fourth largest island in the archipelago. It is large enough to have anything you want and it does. It is diverse offering private hideaway spots when you want to get away from civilization, and lively luxurious locations when being a part of a crowd is preferred.

 
Grand Bahama Island, given the name Gran Bajamar, meaning “Great Shallows” by the Spanish is more than long stretches of deserted clean-white beaches, it is an ecological mecca. Touted as having one of the world’s longest underwater limestone cave systems, Grand Bahama’s natural beauty is bolstered by the variety of rare flowers you’d find, a wide variety of exotic birds, a Gold Rock Beach and all six of the ecosystems found in The Bahamas.

And that’s just the beginning.

 

Significant foreign investments abound on Grand Bahama Island.

There is an oil bunkering facility owned by Vopak, a transshipment/container port partly owned by Hong Kong conglomerate Hutchison Whampoa and the Grand Bahama Port Authority. There are also quarrying operations on the island and a large shipyard.

Interestingly, many of the 50,000 people living on the island were not born here, instead they came from all over The Bahamas, some descending from The Turks & Caicos.
