Old Bahama Bay
When most people hear “Grand Bahama Island” they picture bustling, touristy Freeport. However, 26 miles away from the frenetic crowds is the quiet and relaxed Bahamanian West End. Just beyond the village is sprawling Old Bahama Bay Resort, comprising 63 contemporary suites (and six two-bedroom units) set within 13 cottages that rim a 72-slip marina. It’s the kind of place that moves at a slower, island-style pace. After a lazy day of spa treatments and hours spent in a hammock beneath the palms on North Beach, you’ll dine on conch fritters, rum cake, and other Bahamanian classics at Bonefish Folley’s Bar & Grille—or grab some BBQ at Teaser’s Tiki Bar, next to the beach bonfire.
