ABOUT GRAND BAHAMA ISLAND
The official language of The Bahamas is English, and the currency used is the Bahamian dollar which is equal to one US dollar. As a result of this fixed exchange rate, US dollars are widely accepted on the Island.
Along with tranquil beaches and crystal blue waters, Grand Bahama island features an all-inclusive resort and golf course. The Port Lucaya Marketplace offers dining, entertainment, and duty-free shopping. To explore some of the restaurants and hotels near the Okyanos facility please visit our Restaurant and Accommodations page.
