Best Spots to Explore in Downtown Nassau with Kids

As you begin to plan your Bahamas family vacation, a place you’ll want to be sure to visit while staying with Paradise Island Beach Club is Downtown Nassau. Last month we went over the best things to do in Nassau with kids where you can find a list of kid-friendly activities in Why a Family Bahamas Vacation Should be on Your Bucket List. It’s only fair that we cover the best places to explore in Downtown Nassau when you have little ones along! While you may only spend one day in Downtown Nassau, here’s a couple of stops that are worth checking out. 

Forts of Nassau

Let’s face it, kids have a lot of energy to burn, and as adults, that’s not always the case, which is why we suggest checking out the Forts of Nassau first thing in the morning. The forts date back to the 1700s, and the kids will be fascinated by the magical views of the Nassau Harbor while you soak up the history. You’ll be able to capture photographs next to a drawbridge, cannons, dungeons, the unique architecture, and so much more! Nearing the end of the day in Downtown Nassau, the little ones may be too tired to walk around, which is why we suggest a morning adventure, and they are one of the best things to do in Nassau! 

Explore Bay Street

When you’re looking for the best things to do in Nassau with the kids, Bay Street is full of Bahamas attractions. Bay Street is the main street where you’ll catch the general atmosphere of Downtown Nassau, and you can also watch cruise ships roll in at the Prince George Wharf. You’ll find everything from hand-crafted items to the local art-work, as well as fun souvenirs and gifts for your loved ones back home! 

Stop in for lunch at one of many kid-friendly restaurants, explore the mix of unique shops, the straw market, and the Pirates of Nassau Museum. Many people flock to Bay Street on their Bahamas family vacation to get their fill of amazing deals and view the British Colonial architecture! Lunch will be the perfect time to browse because most of the stores on the street close at 5:30. 

Relax on the Beach this Winter

Once you’ve had your fill of Downtown Nassau, you’ll probably be exhausted from all of the walking. Lucky for you, we’re located right next to Cabbage Beach, where you can lounge next to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. You’ll also be able to relax net our heated private pools with a cocktail while the kids splash around—it is a vacation after all! 
We know that space is essential on your Bahamas family vacation, which is why we offer living rooms with ample accommodation along with a balcony or terrace to get some fresh air. Escape the cold winter season and spend time with your family in our sun-drenched paradise! Call our reservation specialists at 1-800-310-5148 to book your trip today. Or you can simply email
