IT’S ALL ABOUT THE ADVENTURE
If you are planning a vacation to the Bahamas and bringing one or more teenagers, you might be scratching your head and wondering if there will be any activities that interest them.
Well, you are in luck, as the Bahamas is one of the best places to vacation with teenagers. Largely due to the abundance of outdoor activities and water sports, your Bahamian vacation will quickly become a fond memory for many years to come. Below you will find information on three of the most popular outdoor Bahamian activities that are perfect for teenagers.
BAHAMIAN ACTIVITIES IDEA #1: EXUMA LAND AND SEA PARK
This incredible marine sanctuary, located near the northern tip of Exuma, includes miles upon miles of ocean teeming with life. A protected area since 1953, the Exuma Land and Sea Park makes for an adventurous and spirited trip up the chain of islands, although expect to be gone the entire day if you are leaving from your villa at Grand Isle Resort & Spa.
Once there, delve into the crystal clear waters experience some of the best snorkeling in the Caribbean.
BAHAMIAN ACTIVITIES IDEA #2: SWIMMING PIGS AND GIANT IGUANAS
Unlike Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, Exuma is still a relative wilderness with fewer people and a more impressive array of wildlife. And funny enough, some of the most fascinating and unique creatures are actually found on land.
Located close to Grand Isle Resort & Spa, the swimming pigs of Exuma are perhaps the most photographed creature in the entire area. Be sure to bring some food, preferably bread, to feed them as they swim out to your vessel. The pigs are a real crowd pleaser for young and old. On the way, you can also stop at the giant iguanas. These amazing reptiles have an island all to themselves. Stick a few grapes on the end of a stick, and see what happens!
BAHAMIAN ACTIVITIES IDEA #3: WATERSPORTS
One thing is for certain, there is no shortage of watersport activities in the Bahamas. From parasailing, banana boating, jet skiing, kayaking, canoeing, wakeboarding, body surfing, snorkeling and so on, teens will be in pure heaven. Grand Isle Resort & Spa offers many of these marine activities free of charge. Can’t find what you need? Simply ask the concierge desk. They will be more than happy to point you in the right direction.
