Nestled on the shores of Cable Beach in the heart of the luxurious Baha Mar resort, Baha Bay offers a premium waterpark experience that puts the natural beauty of The Bahamas front and centre. The lush, beachfront oasis was designed with family fun in mind, with an array of thrilling attractions sure to delight both youngsters and grown-ups alike.

Immerse yourself in the water’s gentle ebb and flow at Baha Bay Lagoon, a massive, 500,000-gallon wave pool. Experience the rush as you ride The Surf, a state-of-the-art FlowCurlTM simulator where you can find your balance or shred like a pro on a perfect, endless wave. Or put your courage to the test with a ride on Thunderball, the 79-foot open-drop slide that gives you a taste of near-perfect freefall.

Non-adrenaline junkies will also find plenty to see and do at Baha Bay, including at Turtle Beach, where younger kids can enjoy a splashing good time in shallow pools and just-their-size waterslides. And if you find that all this excitement has worked up an appetite, there are also nine amazing dining options to choose from, including mouthwatering eats from world-renowned restaurateurs.

Whether you’re looking to brush up on your boogie boarding skills at the FlowRider® simulator, take the plunge from a ten-foot dive board, or simply lay back and enjoy some relaxation in the sun, there’s no better place to get into that Paradise state of mind than Margaritaville’s Fins Up Water Park. Located on stunning Junkanoo Beach in the heart of Downtown Nassau, the park offers a fantastic selection of adult- and kid-friendly slides, along with a zero-entry pool, rock climbing wall, and outdoor dining at Feeding Frenzy.

Take to the tranquil waters off Junkanoo on a kayaking or paddleboarding adventure. Satisfy your need for speed on the park’s four distinct water slide experiences. Enjoy a leisurely float through the twists, turns, and plunging waterfalls of the lazy river. Or soak up the sun while sipping on a crafted Caribbean cocktail at 12 Volt, the on-site beachfront bar.

When it comes to thrilling aquatic adventures, it’s Better in The Bahamas — and nowhere does that feel more true than at Aquaventure! The largest waterpark in the Caribbean and centrepiece of the iconic Atlantis Paradise Island, Aquaventure boasts 20 swimming areas, 11 pools, and eight thrilling water slides, along the adults-only Cove Pool, and kid-friendly Poseidon’s Playzone.

Soak up the sun or cool off with a dip in the sparkling azure waters of Paradise Beach. Quench your thirst with a tropical cocktail at one of the park’s many swim-up bars. Or treat yourself to the ultimate in luxury with a private poolside cabana booking, featuring personalised service and unsurpassed comfort.

Of course, if heart-pounding action is more your speed, you’ll find plenty to keep the whole crew entertained. Put your courage to the test at the Mayan Temple, where you can take on the challenge of five different slides, including the park’s signature Leap of Faith: a dizzying, 60-foot vertical drop followed by a high-speed ride through a clear acrylic tunnel in a shark-filled lagoon.
