Bahamas is made up of a cluster of seven hundred beautiful tropical islands that form an archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, offering a mix of historic charm, modern attractions, and ecological wonders.

These stunning islands have featured in films such as Bond and Pirates of the Caribbean and many celebrities own second homes there. Children will just love to hear about the history of the Bahamas, how the Arawak Indians were the first occupiers, and how they greeted Christopher Columbus when he arrived on San Salvador Island over 500 years ago, and other stories and myths of pirates and Lucayans.
The island of Nassau is home to the Capital of the Bahamas. This island is a wonderful place to take kids of any age. Bahamas offers a wide range of water sports activities, such as surfing, snorkeling, diving, and of course swimming, and the kids will just love the aqua parks such as Atlantis Waterscape, claiming to be the largest outdoor aquarium in the world.


When to visit Bahamas with kids.

December to March is ideal for a family as the temperatures are cooler at this time of year.


Things to do in Bahamas with kids

Take a tour of the island and take in the islands landmarks, you can take one of the organised trips or hire a car as so easy to get around. In Bahamas they drive on the left hand side of the road.
The kids will love Atlantis Waterscape featuring six lagoons, five swimming pools, 40 waterfalls and underwater walkways for viewing the fish.
Not to be missed, the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Center. The most attractive part of the visit is the informal gardens. Around winding pathways, the gardens hold constant surprises - a cozy limestone bench in a secluded corner or the sight of a kingfisher that just flew in to enjoy the view. A footbridge over a pond where Bahamian ducks mingle with African Geese and fresh water turtles sun on the shore, overlooked by archways of shrubs and exotic plant life. Ardastra Gardens attracts wild birds of all species, some on a migratory path. It is also home to hundreds of beautiful mammals, birds and reptiles, including many endangered species from the Bahamas. The park is situated just a few minutes from Nassau.
Book a day trip to the stunning Blue Lagoon Island to swim with the dolphins – a memory that will say with you forever.
Be greeted by "Captain Black Sparrow" at the Pirates of Nassau museum, kids will love learning about real pirates in a fun and exciting way. Some areas are dark and younger children may find the pirates a bit frightening.
