Mix things up and spend time doing all of them, or pick your favorite and dedicate the entire day to enjoying it to the fullest. Baha Mar Resort Bahamas makes it easy to cater your vacation to the exact way you want to spend it.

There is a casual pizza place, a cute breakfast and brunch cafe, a friendly gastropub, plenty of bars and lounges, food truck experiences, ice cream shops, a hot dog venue, gourmet burgers, authentic bbq, poke bowls, beachside Mexican options and more.

There are also quite a few fine dining options for when you’re feeling upscale and want an amazing meal together. Choose from a steakhouse, a seafood restaurant, as well as venues dedicated to Italian cuisine, Japanese, Mexican, French, American or a combination of some of these.

All take their craft very seriously and excel at providing you with meals you’ll truly enjoy in an atmosphere that makes you feel special and well taken care of.

5. The Adorable Animals

With spots like The Sanctuary, The Aviary, The Conservation Education Center, and Flamingo Cay it is obvious that animals are “the thing” here.

The resort has dedicated time and energy to the preservation of its natural surroundings, conservation and education.

If you have an animal lover in your group, they’ll appreciate the opportunity to mingle with creatures large and small. Wildlife Sanctuary is home to nurse sharks, stingrays, green sea turtles, and Caribbean fish and offers guided tours. There is also an animal feeding experience.

When you’re here, be sure to not miss the adorable flamingo parade. If you are a true flamingo lover you can sign up for an up-close flamingo experience and even flamingo yoga!

The Aviary is the place to go to learn about birds and even feed these tropical beauties.

6. Specialty Options For Kids

One of the best reasons to vacation at Baha Mar Bahamas is the fact that the resort doesn’t neglect its kiddos. On property you’ll find extras like the Kids Explorer Club where guests from ages 3-12 can have fun, meet friends, learn things, make things, create memories and even give mom and dad a break to have some time to themselves if they want it.

There’s a Kitchen Culinary Experience at the resort that offers families a chance to explore cooking together, and you can also sign up to take art classes should you want to do that. These options are in addition to regular resort costs, but may add that little extra to your vacation to make it worthwhile.

Baha Mar offers families everything they need to create the perfect vacation experience for them. There’s so much to see and do here, but there’s also the freedom to make your experience what you want it to be.

Do more watersports if that’s what you enjoy most, splash the day away at the waterpark, visit the animals, or spend most of your time on the beach. You can also mix it up each day, or split up so different family members can enjoy different things but still come together later in the day for special family time.

This resort offers everything you need to make your next family vacation the most incredible one ever!
