Freeport



This is the epicenter of local business in Freeport. While it isn't nearly as aesthetically appealing as the pristinely manicured Bazaar area or the brightly touristy port, it is where the majority of locals choose to shop and conduct business. If you're looking for a lawyer, a doctor, a phone card or a bargain, this is the place to find it. Two downtown businesses that draw a steady stream of tourists are the Batelco headquarters and the Cyber Café. Batelco is the one and only phone company of the Bahamas. It charges exorbitant rates and is unreliable, but any visitors who wish to make long-distance calls will need to go through it. As an alternative to paying hotel long distance rates, which can often skyrocket up to US$6 a minute or more, it's recommended that you stop by Batelco and pick up a phone card. They can also be bought at Zorba's Greek Restaurant in the Port, but more options are available at the downtown Batelco. Private phone booths are also available. There are a few hotels downtown, including the Royal Palm, but for the most part, the area is not particularly interesting to tourists.
