When to go

Climate

Before planning your holidays to Bahamas, remember that the climate of the Bahamas archipelago is tropical and has two distinct seasons, summer and winter. In spring, from May through to November, the climate of the Bahamas is governed by warm, moist tropical air streams travelling north through the Caribbean Sea. In midsummer, temperatures average 23 to 32 degrees Celsius (73.4 – 89.6 Fahrenheit) with humidity of 60 to 100%. In winter months, from December to April, the climate is affected by the movement of cold polar masses from North America. Temperatures during winter range from 16 to 25 degrees Celsius (60.8 – 77 Fahrenheit).

Where to go/stay

The Bahamas are a tropical cluster of some 700 islands famed for their history of pirates, explorers and smugglers. Just imagine how many picture-postcard beaches that means! Justifiably the Bahamas offers a huge variety of accommodation options. The best places to stay on Bahamas vacation in the archipelago range from extravagant themed resorts to tranquil private islands, to jungle guesthouses.

The Bahamas capital, Nassau, on New Providence Island, is one of the busiest cruise ship ports in the world, but you'll find ports on all the islands. Of course Nassau has the main airport and is the home of many of the best places to stay in the islands.
