The Best Family Vacation on Long Island, Bahamas

by CaribbeanBlue »

Long Island, Bahamas has much to offer for different types of travelers from couples to girl friend getaways to groups, but for families that like to travel, this destination is truly ideal. The Out Islands of The Bahamas (not including the metropolitan New Providence and Freeport) are called the “Family Islands” as their populations consist of large families where everyone knows everyone, making it very safe and comfortable for travelers and residences alike. Long Island has a small population of local friendly families that are willing to show you around or point you in the right direction, make you laugh, and share the treasures of the island such as local honey, fruit, and fish.

Rich in breath taking nature and over 80 miles to explore, Long Island has a diverse collection of beaches on the calm baby blue Caribbean side and turquoise Atlantic side. Safe and calm secluded swimming coves are in abundance here where kids can swim and snorkel in comfort. Beaches are peaceful and relaxing and kids have plenty of space to run around on soft sand.

Rent a car and tour the island with beach and picnic supplies intact where ever you go, saving you money on eating out.

There are tons of fun island activities to choose from during your stay from boat tours that take you fishing and snorkeling through coral reefs, sea kayaking, cycling, cave and eco tours, exploring old ruins and historic sites, a museum, beach combing, and so much more. Inspire your kids to capture photos while bird watching, beach hopping, or checking out colorful tropical flowers to make a memorable trip.

For accommodations, vacation rental homes are a great choice to help you feel at home on the beach and give you the best deal on price. They provide all the amenities you need from beach toys to boogie boards, bikes, snorkelling equipment, and Netflix to keep the kids entertained.

So if you’re looking for an ideal destination for your next family vacation, experience Long Island, Bahamas.
