    We were on our way to the east end and came upon this Lagoon. On the drive to the east end if you look down the little side streets you can see the ocean at the end. Venture down them, you won't regret it. Some very beautiful beaches and lagoons are at the end of these roads.

    We were exploring the island and came upon a sign for Barbury Beach. We lost the signs but finally found the beach. It was beautiful, we were the only ones there. It was so relaxing and worth the drive to find it!

    Paradise Cove Beach

    It is worth the drive. Escape from the tourist zone of Freeport/Lucaya. Head to Paradise Cove, for clean, beautiful beach and water. After swimming through a shallow saegrass lagoon, you arrive at a pretty reef, 12-20 ft deep. Many tropical fish, also turtles, large spotted eagle rays, and nice corals. There are large rafts to rest on.

    Good Kayak spot

    We found this mangrove estruary about a mile past the Lucayan National Park entrance. We found it too late in the day to play there and never found time to get back, but it looked like a great place to start a kayak tour. Heading east, take a right after a sign about the US Astronauts picked up nearby. Follow the road all the way to the end.

    We missed the tour bus whe we were done with seeing the gardens. The next tour bus gave us a ride back. Its not enough time to see everything, take pictures and relax when taking the tour buses. If you can rent a car, so it.

    The Red Scooter Mon!

    The Red Scooter Mon will follow you all around Freeport trying to get you to buy pot from him. Rumor has it he has the best stuff (he started the rumor) but it is safer to avoid in general. This is off the beaten path because that's where he is lurking!

    Get to Port Lucaya Marketplace...

    by DoctorDon Written Aug 24, 2002

    Get to Port Lucaya Marketplace -- about 20 minutes from Freeport on Grand Bahama Island -- and see the Dolphin Experience. It costs half as much as the Dolphin Encounter on Blue Lagoon Island that is offered by the cruise lines. It works out of the UnExSo (Underwater Exploration Society) building, where they also offer swims with sharks (!!!) See their website at www.dolphinexperience.com -- then compare it to www.dolphinswims.com

    Bahama Island - one word - STAY! I loved the beaches and the fun I had there. I didn't want to leave, but while I was there it was hot, fun and lots to do and see.
