The climate in the Bahamas is outstanding, which makes it a pleasure to visit our Islands!
The height of the season is between December 15th and Easter. Hotels are booked solid during these months, therefore it would be wise to book your reservations way in advance.
Even during the ‘off-season’, that is during the months between Easter and mid-December, tourists flock to the Bahama Islands. The rates are lower during this time of the year, sometimes as much as 40%!
Visitors to the picturesque islands of the Bahamas often become immersed in the country’s rich history and culture. For centuries, the country named by Christopher Columbus for its shallow waters has been a hub of political, economic, and yes, even criminal activity. As the favorite destination of notorious pirates and British Puritans throughout history, the Bahamas has continually proven its allure to a wide range of people. The varying backgrounds of the groups that now comprise the indigenous population of the Bahamas have melded to create a Bahamian culture that is entirely unique.
With its pristine beaches, festive culture, and inviting year-round climate, the Bahamas has established itself as a favorite destination of travelers from around the globe. Although typically considered a tropical destination, the network of islands that comprise the Bahamas actually offers a vast array of travel and entertainment options. Each of the primary islands of the Bahamas offers unique opportunities for its visitors, with varying levels of tourist traffic and available amenities.
The corporate metropolis of Nassau has assumed the look and feel of a prominent U.S. city, while the less-traveled Out Islands have managed to retain much of their undeveloped charm. Among the country’s 700 islands and 2500 cays, there are countless opportunities for adventure seekers to explore undisturbed beaches and exotic waters, while remaining within easy reach of modern conveniences. Offering an array of outdoor activities, social experiences, and entertainment options, the Bahamas remains one of the world’s premier travel destinations.
