Grand Bahama is the northernmost island of the 700 islands & 2,400 cays that make up the Bahamas, in the Atlantic Ocean. Grand Bahama is 1,372 square kilometers (530 square miles) in size, and is home to over 400,000 people! With the soft white sand, turquoise lagoon, and abundant coral and marine life, it's no surprise why Grand Bahama is one of the most popular islands to visit, in the Bahamas!

I traveled to Grand Bahama in late March, and the weather was fabulous! I had a week full of sunshine, and calm waters!
Island Seas Resort Island Seas Resort was a beautiful resort right in between the Ocean Reef Jetty and Silver Point Beach. The grounds were so beautiful with palm trees everywhere, and a gorgeous pool area with a bar and waterfall. A bridge crossed over the pool to a hidden hot tub area, and it was awesome. There were two restaurants/bars at the resort, that had delicious food! Island Seas Resort was a great place to stay with such wonderful service and stunning views!
Exploring Grand Bahama I explored Grand Bahama by Jeep & on foot! This was my very first time traveling outside of the United States. So, I didn't take many pictures, and the few I did take, weren't with the best camera (something is better than nothing, though)! I was just amazed seeing clear blue water and white sand, for the first time, and this is where my love for traveling first began! I explored around Freeport, did some shopping and played at some of the casinos in Port Lucaya, and explored the Lucayan National Park. My favorite spot around the entire island was Gold Rock Beach, which had pristine white sand, and slow rolling blue waves along this desolate beach. It was such a great first "out of the country" experience that opened my heart up to an entire new way of life!
