When to Visit the Bahamas

You may want to book your visit in spring, summer, or fall to be assured of a warm weather vacation. Winter temperatures are usually balmy, but occasionally a cold front reaches its chilly fingers into these waters and drops temperatures to spring-like levels. On an early March visit, we dug into our luggage for sweatshirts and, although temperatures were perfect for island touring, found that it too chilly for comfortable swimming.

While we’re warning you, be careful of March and April bookings for another reason: spring breakers. Those low-cost downtown properties (and even some of the Paradise Island and Cable Beach resorts) swell with students during these weeks. Because of the charter packages, Nassau is the Caribbean for the masses and, during this time, that means raucous students. For a quiet, family getaway, consider an alternate month or a different destination.
