When it’s time to choose a family vacation destination, Nassau Paradise Island has it all! Activities for kids of all ages, family-friendly dining options to appeal to the littlest travelers (and Mom and Dad, too!), and powdery-white sand beaches that are perfect for building sandcastles or splashing in the surf – it’s no wonder families choose The Bahamas for making unforgettable vacation memories. In fact, the biggest challenge about planning a family vacation in The Bahamas is often “so much to do, so little time”. And while the obvious solution would be to extend your vacation, that’s not always a possibility.
Many of our hotels and resorts have kids’ programs to keep little ones busy from morning to night, but if you’d like to discover The Bahamas beyond your hotel, we’re sharing our top picks for a perfect family vacation in Paradise.
A Day at The Beach
What’s a visit to The Bahamas without spending a day enjoying our beautiful beaches? When you and your crew are ready for a laid-back day of fun in the sun, a beach day is just the thing. Host a family sandcastle-building contest, play in the crystal-clear waters, or go for a stroll along one of Nassau Paradise Island’s pristine, powdery-soft white sand beaches. In fact, with so many gorgeous beaches, you can visit more than one! Check out our guide to the beaches of Nassau Paradise Island to help choose the perfect stretch of sand.
Lunch: Grab a quick bite
There are plenty of places to grab a tasty, family-friendly meal that everyone will enjoy, no matter which beach you’re on. If you’re on Paradise Island, head to Marina Village, a colorful, bustling streetscape lined with eateries to please everyone in the family. Try fresh conch salad from McKenzies or head to Frankie Gone Bananas for lunch with authentic Bahamian flair. If your kids aren’t adventurous eaters, don’t worry – you’ll be able to grab a juicy burger or pizza by the slice.
If you’re basking on a Nassau beach, stroll to the downtown core along Bay Street, where you’ll find plenty of open-air, casual grills and eateries. Enjoy a quick lunch so you can get back to the important stuff: the beach!
