With 700 islands and 2,400 cays strewn across 100,000 square miles of turquoise ocean, the Bahamas are a year-round Caribbean paradise. The best time to visit the Bahamas is between mid-December and mid-April. The weather is still warm and sunny, but resort prices are lower and you can avoid the hordes of vacationers that descend on the islands during summer.
The sunniest month is April, with an average of 9.2 sunny days. It's also cooler and more comfortable than in summer, with less humidity and a lower UV index.
Winter is a great time to visit the Bahamas for those looking for warmer temperatures and less rain. The sun is out more often than in other months, but the temperatures are slightly cooler, and the sea is usually calmer. This makes it perfect for watersports such as kayaking.
It's also a good time to go diving or snorkelling. There are no concerns about hurricanes, and the waters are teeming with brightly colored fish and spooky shipwrecks.
It’s a good idea to book accommodation well in advance at this time, particularly if you’re visiting for Christmas or Spring Break. Availability can become limited and prices rise sharply.
