Here’s the top 10 activities and experiences for everyone.
1. Baha Bay
The resort’s brand new Baha Bay, a luxury beachfront water park overlooking the captivating Cable Beach stages splashy exhilarations for the whole family—designated areas for younger kids, rousing water slides for teens, and a casino gaming pavilion for adults.

Enjoy the pristine greens at Royal Blue Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus Signature-designed golf course whose rapturous ocean views, undulating fairways and rolling white-sand dunes backdrop its front nine holes, while limestone “moonscapes” through dense jungle and downhill terrain up the ante on the back nine. The recently launched Mini Blue Golf, a meandering, pro-inspired miniature golf course, is also a hit for families, teens, groups and everyone who enjoys a little competitive fun.
3. Racquet Club
