Plus, you can also see everything from Karaoke to a traditional Junkanoo show at Count Basie Square.

Port Lucaya Marketplace

There’s one place that brings together all the best of Grand Bahama’s shopping, dining, and entertainment in one wonderful waterfront destination:  Port Lucaya Marketplace

The very heart of the island, Port Lucaya Marketplace bounces to a lively beat with a blend of local flavors and international favorites for everything from a tropical smoothie to an elegant three-course continental supper.  Specialty boutiques with fashion, jewelry, art, and handmade treasures abound alongside some of the best-known names in designer labels, with shopping and dining choices to suit all tastes and budgets.

A happening place, Port Lucaya Marketplace dances with live music and the serendipity of strolling entertainers, community gospel choirs, steel drums, artisans crafting their wares, holiday fireworks, art shows, and the heart-happy sounds of brightly costumed Junkanoo groups, pulsing to the beat of goatskin drums, horns, and cowbells.

A place to see and be seen, Port Lucaya Marketplace is set along the lovely waterfront of Bell Channel Bay where it’s easy to dock your yacht, charter a glass bottom boat or sports fishing trip, book a sunset cruise or snorkeling experience, learn to dive, or make a date to meet new dolphin friends.

It’s all here. A mere 68 miles from South Florida; only a 35-minute flight away. So bring your appetite for fun and relaxed island charm and your passport. We have everything else you came for and more.
