What's In Store for Families at Resorts World Bimini
Just a stone's throw from Miami, the modern, 750-acre beachfront Resorts World Bimini isn't just for couples. Families, too, will find an abundance of activities to please every age group from toddler to teen. This resort has 480 luxury studios, condos and villas, ranging from one to four bedrooms, so everyone can have their own room and, come bedtime, parents don't need to sit whispering in the dark while their children sleep at the foot of the bed.
Most private accommodations come equipped with full kitchens so families can fix snacks and meals for the most finicky eaters. Spacious bedrooms, roomy living spaces and outdoor balconies and terraces also let families spread out when a full day of games and excitement means everyone needs a little breathing room.
Even with a vast array of family-friendly activities on tap, parents should be sure to make a stop at Beach Bums, the children’s club, where little ones can let their creative imaginations run wild while older children can play board games and sneak in some extra screen time without regular reminders from parents to "turn that thing off!"
Family time means fun time, and when you're at the beach, plenty of time in the sun and sand. When all the sandcastles have been built and every shell collected from the beach, it's time for the adventures to begin. What better way to get the adrenaline flowing than on a Banana Boat. Children 4 years old and up will have the ride of a lifetime as they are whisked across the water behind a powerboat.
Glass-bottom kayaks and paddleboats are also a great way for younger children to get out on the water (especially if mom or dad is pedaling) and explore the sights. And when mom and dad need a break but the kids are still raring to go, the water hammock will seem like a gift from the gods. Adults can sunbathe while children bounce off all their excess energy.
Fans of Flipper will not want to miss the Wild Dolphin Expedition. Bimini is the only place in the Bahamas that offers the amazing chance to swim, play and observe a resident population of Atlantic spotted dolphins. Kids who might be interested in exploring the ocean but who can't (or don't ) wish to snorkel can ask mom and dad to take them on a glass-bottom boat tour. This two-hour trip along a coral reef ecosystem gives families the chance to learn about the many diverse species of marine life living just under the waves.
Families will love the chance to get out and explore the island by land and by sea with the South Bimini Nature Tour. A tour guide will take them by catamaran from the Fisherman's Village to South Bimini, where a hike along a nature trail will expose vacation-goers to the tropical plants and animals that make the island their home. Shark Week comes to life with a visit to the Shark Lab, a research station where visitors will learn why sharks are important to balance of nature. Brave nature lovers can even wade out to the shark pens at low tide. A detour to Ponce de Leon's famed Fountain of Youth is a must-see as is a trip to the famous Shell Beach.
So whether action-packed days or lazy afternoons under a beach umbrella are on the agenda, Resorts World Bimini is an ideal spot for a family getaway.
