Freeport is the largest city on Grand Bahama, the most northern island in the Bahamas and the closest to Florida. Its tropical climate and pristine beaches are only two of its idyllic features. The island is a haven for winter vacationers or as a one-day ship port. These photos were taken one month after Hurricane Matthew struck on October 28, 2016 so you will see lingering damage. But its natural beauty still shines along with the sun.
