Bahamas Family Vacations Overview

The Out Islands (sometimes called the Family Islands) are simply all the other islands outside of the Big Three. These sleepy destinations are the places to head if you want only a hammock, a book, turquoise waters, miles of sugary sand and utmost privacy. Take, for example, Harbour Island -- a three-mile-long, half-mile-wide speck off the coast of North Eleuthera. At first glance, Harbour Island looks like it's straight out of a time warp, with 18th-century clapboard houses that are edged with picket fences. Cars are all but forbidden (replaced by golf carts), and anywhere you want to go is only a short stroll from the beach.
Then there are the Exumas, even less developed than Harbour Island. With crystal-clear water, uninhabited islands to picnic and soft, rolling hills, this is the place to venture to if you want to say goodbye to the rest of the world. The Tropic of Cancer runs directly through George Town, the capital and principal settlement of the Exumas.
Whether it's the action on Grand Bahama, New Providence and Paradise Islands or the quiet solitude of the Out Islands, if your idea of a vacation includes somnolent breezes, crystalline waters and soft sands, any Bahamian island will do.

Hey all just wanted to report back after a week of amazing sailing around Abacos and nearby islands- everyone had a blast and I wanted to share with everyone how simple this can be. My brother has sailing experience from college so we took him along and he was able to captain the ship with our help. We did a bareboat charter (from a company called LateSail.com if anyone is interested) and it was such a great trip- surprisingly my two-year old did great and of course the 7 year old had a blast swimming, jumping, snorkeling, we did it all! Lots of good restaurants to stop at so while we did eat on board I didn't have to spend the whole time cooking. I'm told this is an easy destination for sailing and it sure seems like it- very gentle winds and low-lying islands, easy to dock in each location. I think if you don't have someone who knows how to sail you can also hire a captain. Try it!! You will not regret sailing in the Bahamas, we can't wait to go again. Read More Read Less
