Enjoy a Better Beach Day with Kids

Posted by: Nassau Paradise Island on July 06, 2016

Sand, surf, sun – it’s an ideal combination for family fun! With some of the world’s best beaches, Nassau Paradise Island is a ‘shore’ thing for an unforgettable family vacation. Whether it’s your first time taking along your tots or you’re a seasoned pro, enjoying the powder-white sand and turquoise waters of Paradise with your little ones promises to be a day at the beach.

Check out these five easy tips for an unbeatable beach day with your kids.

Arrive Early. Kids are early risers, so take advantage of those early mornings by hitting the beach first thing. Not only will it be less crowded, but you can pick the best spot for your family. We suggest snagging a set of beach chairs in the shade for your family-friendly home base.

Come Prepared. With kids in the mix, packing for your beach day becomes even more important. Fill your beach bag with all of the essentials – towels, sunscreen, snacks, swimsuits, and, of course, beach toys. Didn’t have room in your suitcase for everything? Don’t worry! Nassau Paradise Island’s local shops are just the place to pick up everything you need for the beach.

Safety First. With sunshine in the forecast all year round, there’s almost always a gorgeous day of sun waiting for you. But be careful to protect your kin’s precious skin! Slather on sunblock and then reapply, reapply, reapply. And don’t forget to keep your gang hydrated throughout the day.

Plan Activities. While our sandy shores make the perfect playground for your kids, to keep your family having fun in the sun all day long, it’s important to have a few activities in your back pocket. Stroll along the beach, build the perfect sandcastle, or dive in for a family snorkeling adventure.

Manage Hunger. During a day at the beach, your crew is bound to work up an appetite. Luckily, there is a delicious array of beachfront dining options to choose from on Nassau Paradise Island – all set against some of the most beautiful backdrops in the Caribbean.

Let go and enjoy. Most importantly, don’t forget that a day in Paradise is the perfect opportunity to experience family memories that will last a lifetime. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a blissful day at the beach.
