We will be taking a RC cruise to Bahamas July 9th. I have 3 boys (ages 10,12,14). We were going to skip an excursion and try to spend the day relaxing on the beach and maybe do a little exploring on the island. We are ported for about 10 hours or so.
I have never been to Bahamas. We would love to find a beautiful beach that isn't super crowded but also want to be in a safe area. We are comfortable exploring and figuring out transportation. Does anyone recommend an area to visit and beach to venture to?
Also, many posts stated getting a day pass to a resort but it was hard to find one that had accepted kids. Any suggestions? Would this be better than a public beach? I looked at the prices of Atlantis and it was way more than we want to spend for the 5 of us.
Finally, Royal Caribbean has an excursion to Paradise island. Do you recommend this? It looks like to you can arrange your own ferry ride there. Is that more economical? I'm having a hard time understanding if this is a public area we can visit and say on or if you have to pay to be in this area.
Would love your thoughts. We have never cruised before so we are new to this all.
