The Bahamas are just southeast of sunny Florida in the Atlantic Ocean. The archipelago is made up of over 700 islands of various sizes with a tropical maritime climate. This means that summers are very hot and wet while winter is mild and dry.

Hurricane season lasts from June to November, which is something you should consider before travel. Although serious storms are rare, the islands are subject to heavy downpours and easterly trade winds that contribute to tropical thunderstorms in the region.

The best time to visit the Bahamas is between November and April for lots of sunshine, warm temperatures and less rain than the summer months. The average temperature is around 24°C, which is great for relaxing on the beach and soaking up the lovely sunshine.

If you don’t mind the extra rainfall, the summer can be a really nice time to visit the Bahamas. Temperatures are very high in July and August with an average high of 28°C. It’s the best time to go to the Bahamas for a tan as temperatures often rise to the low-30s.
