Default Best destination for four kids? Bemuda? Bahamas? Caribbean

We want a low-key destination. We're not shoppers and can't do many supervised tours. Just looking for nice beaches with activites four kids (ages 1, 5, 8, 10) could do.

Bermuda is a good destination for kids who love the beach. Also, many southern Caribbean itineraries (calling in Antigua, Barbados, etc>) have some good beaches. Check out the article I wrote, "Back to the Beach" which is listed on the main page of the family cruising section of CruiseMates.com. I listed and described family friendly beaches that you can reach independently (via cab) from cruise ports.
Smooth sailing,

since you specified low-key i would pick Bermuda. Its a beautiful, clean island, with nice sandy beaches for you and the kids. There is horesback riding, snorkeling, water sports, caves to explore, beautiful flower gardens, history. Transit system is wonderful. Good shopping in Hamilton if mom is interested.

Lisa -

I would also recommend Bermuda. I went to Nassau last year with my kids and although we went to the beach just down from Atlantis iand enjoyed it , it didn't compare with Bermuda. Last time I was there we just used the bus/ferry system which was great. The kids had a wonderful time just riding the ferry.

I posted an answer to this on the other board but will do it here too....

Bermuda is the best. Tons of beaches and very low key. I went there 5 years ago with just my husband and am heading back in a little more than a month with my two kids who are ages 13 and 9.

I have to agree with Bermuda. Very low key with lots of great beaches. The kids will have fun snorkeling in Tobacco Bay. Horseshoe Beach has facilities which is great if you have kids.

Keep in mind that Bermuda is NOT BEACH weather in the winter.It does cool down there ( not really cold but not tropical in winter)

The Bermuda cruise season is from May to October, to coincide with beach weather there!
