Exploring the Bahamas with Kids

There’s plenty to do in the Bahamas with kids: Spot wildlife throughout the islands and in the sea. Take a boating excursion with options for fishing and snorkeling. And with so many beaches, building sand castles with your little ones is a perfect way to while away the afternoon. Here are some of the top spots for family fun.

Atlantis, Paradise Island

Swimming pools and waterslides for all ages, aquariums and marine habitat exploration, and an interactive kids adventure club make Atlantis is a top destination for families.

Ardastra Gardens, Nassau

Wander the gardens and see a variety of plants, birds, and animals. Make sure you’re there to watch the marching flamingos, and grab a family photo with them. Children will love feeding apples to the colorful lory parrots.

Baha Mar, Western New Providence

Newly opened Baha Mar caters to adults but hasn’t forgotten about kids. It offers the Explorer’s Club for ages 3-12 with marine encounters, Bahamian art experiences, games, movies, and dancing.

Blue Lagoon Island, New Providence area

Kids and adults alike will enjoy spending the day swimming with dolphins and interacting with the other sea animals on Blue Lagoon Island.

Treasure Cay, Abacos

For beach lovers, check into Treasure Cay Resort, or into a beachfront vacation rental where your little ones can play in the calm water.

Harbour Island

A great place for families, Harbour Island sees an influx of people with children throughout December, spring break, and Easter holidays. Spend your days on the beach, rent a paddleboard or tandem kayak for the calm harbor, and, for older children, let them explore on their own.
