Family Fun In The Bahamas
December 02, 2013
The Bahamas is a perfect playground for kids of all ages. Throw on a saddle and trot up and down our pristine shores on horseback. Get down and dirty with a little sand volleyball. Go bowling at one of our many resorts. Or simply build a sand castle on the beach. Kids can even attend Kids Camp, where they’ll find a replica of a famous sunken Spanish galleon.
There are many fun-filled activities for the entire family that also offer learning opportunities. Visit the candy-striped lighthouse of Hope Town on Elbow Cay. Enjoy a stroll through the pastel-shaded gingerbread houses of picturesque New Plymouth on Green Turtle Cay. Or, visit with the historic shipbuilders of Man O’ War Cay.
The Exumas have a number of cultural, heritage and historical attractions for families to explore. Natural reserves such as The Exuma Land & Sea Park—including Pasture and O’Brien’s Cay—Moriah Harbour Cay National Park, and Allan's Cay offer numerous educational opportunities.
