Grand Bahama Island also known as, Freeport Grand Bahama Island, is 96 miles long and 17 miles across. However, don't worry about traveling, the West side of the island is where almost all of the tourist attractions can be found.
English is the national language of the Bahamas, so don't worry about needing to bring a translator along!
The Bahamian currency is nearly equal to that of the American dollar. Across the island, U.S. dollars are widely accepted as well.
The weather rarely drops below 60 or goes above 90, making the year-round weather ideal for... well... anyone!
The Bahamas has a wide-range of attractions, some requiring formal attire and most not. Do not worry about not having the proper clothes unless you intend on going to some of the upscale attractions.
Another important note to remember: in Grand Bahama Island as with all of the Bahamas, people drive on the left side of the road!
