Family fun at Nassau Paradise Island


In association with: Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board

New attractions and hotels have opened across this hotspot in The Bahamas

Nassau Paradise Island is solidifying its reputation as the ultimate family fun destination, with new water parks, resorts and activities to keep parents and children entertained. And now, with several direct flights available, it’s more accessible than ever.

Virgin Atlantic operates a service straight to Nassau twice a week, and British Airways flies six times a week, so your clients can be in The Bahamas’ vibrant capital in less than 10 hours.

Fun in the sun

Escaping on a family holiday to the sunny Caribbean may be extra‑appealing for your clients now that there are even more places to stay and play. The new Margaritaville Beach Resort, which opened its doors last summer, is suitable for all guests, and with a kids’ club and a water park on site, there’s plenty to keep families entertained.

The new Baha Bay welcomed its first visitors last summer

The Fins Up Water Park is one of two new parks that has opened in Nassau Paradise Island in the past year. With a lazy river, waterslides and surf simulator, guests of Margaritaville can enjoy unlimited access. Visitors staying elsewhere won’t miss out, with day passes available to purchase.

Meanwhile, over at the luxury resort of Baha Mar, the new Baha Bay also welcomed its first visitors last summer. There are more than 30 attractions here, including 24 waterslides, and two areas, Turtle Beach and Stingray Cove, suitable for the youngest guests.

Five of the best family activities
