Clear sound system, live bands, and lots of people dancing: this place is the center of Lucaya come weekends.

If you are on a trip to the Bahamas this is one of the must see for taking photographs! Lots of colour, pretty boats and shacks selling local goodies including shaved ice!

Lots of Pepto color painted everything in yet another tourist trap. There is a decent accessible bathroom here. The Yogurt spot is nice.

Prices of the products on sale were expensive and the people selling not that friendly. Our excursion was cancelled and there was just nothing to do that was walkable from where our ship docked.

Like every other shopping area off a port. Same items to buy. Options for dining, taxi services, and alcohol.

Lively spot in the evenings...restaurants, bars and live music! Good for people watching, relaxing with a drink and watching the boats in the marina.
