Waikiki, Ipanema, Bondi, and Malibu, and one you probably have not paid too much attention to, but it is actually one of the finest beaches in the world, with great things to do - Cable Beach, in The Bahamas, surrounded by the capital - Nassau - and the former British outpost archipelago.

Click For Nassau City GuideA National Leisure Travel Monitor poll of 1,351 leisure travelers taken during the first quarter of 2002 reflects that when families go away together, they also want to play together.

Even before the events of September 11th, this trend surfaced, as was identified in the Portrait of Family Travel - a 2001 survey of 284 adults who traveled with children and 424 children between the ages of 6 and 17 years, in which nine out of 10 parents indicated "my kids' interests are an important factor in planning vacations."

To meet the need for family recreational activities, at three of The Bahama's Cable Beach's premiere resorts: Wyndham Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace Casino, Radisson Cable Beach Resort, and Nassau Beach Hotel, have select activities that take the needs for family fun seriously.

There are lots of activities the whole family can enjoy together: snorkeling, a leisurely day sail, fun at the outdoor pool, complete with the thrill of a free-form waterslide. While the resort's beachfront RainForest Adventure Golf, a miniature golf course, offers up such themed holes as the Temple of Doom, Extreme Sand Castle, and Loop to Loop.

The Wyndham Nassau Resort also has many fun activities of interest to families, the Flamingo Bar & Grille, located poolside, offers kid-friendly menu items such as hamburgers, hot dogs, fries and milk.

Additional area attractions and activities include: Adastra Gardens & Zoo (4 miles), Botanic Gardens, Fort Charlotte (5 miles), Island Cruises (5 miles), sailing (5 miles), Straw Market (5 miles).

The all-inclusive Radisson Cable Beach Resort offers innovative incentives for all family structures. Single parents traveling with children under the age of 17 pay the applicable double occupancy adult rate, rather than the price applied to a single room. Camp Junkanoo is this resort's daily, supervised kids program, for children ages 4-12.

The center offers a variety of daily activities and hands-on educational programs from arts and crafts or nature trips, to pool play, beach Olympics and more. For teens there is Camp Junkanoo After Dark. This program offers youngsters their own night out and the chance to interact with other young guests, while enjoying playing video games, watching movies and listening to their favorite tunes.

Families staying at the resort will enjoy great outdoor fun together: sailing, snorkeling, kayaking, golfing, and hanging out in or around the resort's seven-acre waterscape. The 700-room Radisson Cable Beach Resort also offers organized daily activities including poolside ping-pong tournaments and beach volleyball.

The Radisson Cable Beach Resort redefines the concept of a tropical vacation by being "The Only All-Inclusive that offers its guests MORE" - More entertainment, More dining, More fun, and More hospitality. With six restaurants, five bars and lounges, a seven-acre waterscape, a multitude of land and water activities, and a welcoming feeling that is as warm as the Bahamian sun, an all-inclusive vacation at the 700-room resort offers everything a guest looks forward to.

Set on world-famous Cable Beach adjacent to one of the Caribbean's largest casinos, the Radisson Cable Beach Resort is conveniently located 10 minutes away from the island's international airport and colorful downtown Nassau. And for shoppers, the world famous Straw Market on the Nassau waterfront has been completely rebuilt after a devastating fire.

A big highlight of visiting Cable Beach is its water activities. Nassau Beach Hotel has a wide variety of sports ranging from reef snorkeling to windsurfing. All guests have free access to float mats, ocean kayaks, snorkeling gear, life vests, and boards.
Additional water sports include: 16 foot Prindle (catamaran), Sunfish sailboat, reef fishing, and sightseeing tours.

The Nassau Beach Hotel is very close to the Crystal Cay Marine Park, a fun place to visit for people of all ages. Easily identifiable on the Nassau skyline by its space-age design, the Crystal Cay Marine Park is one of the world's finest examples of an underwater park where nobody gets wet. The park was built around an existing reef, and families can explore a huge array of exhibits both above and below the surface. Near Nassau is also the famous swim with dolphin encounter, the first in the world. The kids will love the "Flippers."

Recently, the resort instituted a series of theme nights. On Friday nights from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., families can take part in the American Barbeque Night. This night offerGet Your Dive Gear Here Onlines a little taste of home, while on vacation, serving up grilled sirloin steaks, grilled chicken breast, baked potato, corn on the cob, baked beans, salads, fruit and desserts.
