Grand Bahama Island


It has been said that Grand Bahama Island is heaven on earth. From its unique bird life to its cavernous diving world, your Grand Bahama Island adventure awaits. Known for its beaches, and crystal-blue water, it’s perfect for all kinds of beach activities and water sports.

Thanks to the trade winds that blow throughout the islands, the average temperature for March is a pleasant 77°F, with a gentle dip at night of just 5 to 7 degrees. The result? A climate where you can have fun anytime of the day.



The Grand Lucayan Beach Resort is pleased to serve as “Official Race Headquarters” and host hotel for the Grand Bahama Half Marathon event weekend activities. Reserve your room now for great rates, and a stress free race experience. Just roll out of bed and you are conveniently located steps away from the start and finish line. Host to the “Feelin Good Expo/Packet Pickup”, “Island Breeze” Carbo Load Dinner, and “Get Your Groove On” Post-race Beach Party… the Grand Lucayan offers all this, and you’ll be surrounded by lush green lawns, powder-soft white sand and the luxuries of a modern-day resort steeped by the magic of Bahamian culture.

This is the Bahamas at its laid-back best. It feels real because it is. It’s the Bahamas you remember, wrapped in a resort you’ll never forget. A perfect pre-race setting!

So close to home, yet feels so far away.

Just 50 miles off the coast of Florida.

Grand Bahama Island is very accessible by air and sea. Many airlines now offer direct flights directly into Freeport on Grand Bahama Island. Just a short plane ride from Miami International Airport, or South Florida. Or you can take a short 45-minute ferry ride from Port Everglades into the Lucayan Harbour, just minutes from Race Headquarters.
