While not a hugely popular charter destination, Freeport and Lucaya are a popular land based tourist destination. There is a large international airprort and ferry service from the coast of Florida.
Freeport is a gateway to the Bahamas. The Freeport International Airport is easily accessed from major US and European cities. Most charter destinations in the Bahamas however are a little far from the Freeport area with no charter yachts being based in Freeport at this time. You may prefer to lay back and spend several days exploring here, before starting a yachting vacation from Nassau.Freeport is the busy commercial city, but the private yachting destination is probably best defined as Lucaya. Lucaya is reached from the Bell Channel on the southern coast where you will find two first class luxury marinas. The main action is centered around the Port Lucaya Marina, but if you prefer a quieter pace you might stay at the Lucayan Village Marina.
You might want to visit The Marketplace with its 106 shops, restaurants, and bars. If you are looking for the casino or a show, you'll need to head to Freeport (by taxi) to the Bahamia Resort and Casino and the International Bazaar.
Swim and walk along the perfect beach on the south coast, or take a boat off shore to scuba and snorkel sites.
