Bahamas with younger child (5yr old) which island is best

Jump to last reply

We are thinking of heading to the Bahamas for Thanksgiving week and trying to decide which island would best suit us. It's overwhelming when looking at all the areas to choose from, we have traveled the Caribbean a lot, however, never to the Bahamas.

We typically like 4 star resorts/villas, I'm not sure if Atlantis is quite for us, since it seems like a super huge property, however, when searching it always comes up as a good kid friendly resort. We don't put our son in kids clubs, we take him with us where ever we go, so that doesn't matter to us. We are open to all inclusive, or condo/villa with a kitchen, however, close by eateries for dinner. We are open to smaller islands, but easy to get to other areas, or sites to see.

We like/prefer to be on the beach. We need places to take our son, so that he doesn't get too bored just hanging at the beach, which then he would drive us crazy! :) He does love the water, horesback riding, seeing animals, etc. I don' t like to plan a lot, we do use this time to relax and regroup to get back to work, however, we do have to keep him entertained for a few days.

Any suggestions you could offer would be greatly appreciated. We are also contemplating St. Martin. Thank you in advace Fodorites for you help!
