Grand Bahama to attract international real estate buyers

On the West End of Grand Bahama Island a new international resort is being constructed by Ginn Resorts. This $4.9 billion development has been named Ginn sur Mer and will sit on nearly 2000 acres along the westernmost peninsula of the island, surrounded on both sides by the Atlantic Ocean.
This resort will be the largest development ever seen on the islands and will add to the international real estate appeal of The Bahamas and Grand Bahama Island. The heart of the resort is going to be a 20-story hotel and condominium tower rising from the peninsula and will be visible from miles away on the water. 4,400 condominium and hotel units are set to be constructed along with 1,800 individual family homes.
A Grand Canal will wind its way throughout the resort, giving every home a waterfront location and linking the different parts of the development via waterway. Two signature golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer are also under construction and will nestle alongside the homes and buildings, allowing anyone the opportunity to walk out their door and hit the fairways. A private airport is set to be constructed along with a 380 slip marina allowing easy access by boat or plane.
A large Monte Carlo style casino will also grace the resort, along with nightclubs, restaurants, spas and activity centers for children. The resort will have something for everyone, whether they are looking for a vacation spot or an overseas home. This is an excellent international investment opportunity and a great location for those looking for second homes.
The West End sits on the westernmost part of Grand Bahama Island and is the closest part of the island nation to the United States. At less than 60 nautical miles to West Palm Beach, Florida, a 3-hour boat trip from Miami can bring one to the West End.  There is an international airport and major port at Freeport, only 12 miles, or about 20 km., away.
