Fodor's Expert Review Port Lucaya Marketplace
Lucaya's capacious and lively shopping complex is on the waterfront across the street from the Grand Lucayan Hotel, and right in front of the Pelican Bay. The outdoor shopping center, whose walkways are lined with hibiscus, bougainvillea, and croton, has lots of well-kept, colorfully painted establishments, among them waterfront restaurants and bars, water-sports operators, and shops that sell clothes, silver, jewelry, perfumes, and local arts and crafts. The marketplace's centerpiece is Count Basie Square, where live entertainment featuring Bahamian bands appeals to joyful nighttime crowds every weekend. Lively outdoor watering holes line the square.
