Bahamas Travel Information

When to Go

The Bahamas is a year-round destination. Constant trade breezes ensure pleasant temperatures, so unless you're visiting the southern isles, which get infernally hot in summer (June to August), weather isn't a major factor in determining when to go. Climate-wise, the best time to come is the warm, breezy summer, when the water is so warm you can linger in it for hours. Mid-winter temperatures in the northerly and westerly isles can be surprisingly cool.

Lasting from May to October, the wet season in the Bahamas contains the hottest months of the year and, as the rainfall is quite low (by Caribbean standards) this low-season is a good time to visit. If you're not partial to hot-and-sticky then try March to April and November to December, when the maximum temperature usually sits just below 30°C (86°F). Occasionally cold North American winds sweep down on the Bahamas during winter and spring.

Getting Around

The Bahamas is well served by plane from north America. Its proximity to Florida means relatively inexpensive flights run regularly from Miami, Ft Lauderdale and Orlando, as well as other East Coast gateways like New York, Atlanta, Charlotte, Boston and Washington DC.
