The Bahamas at a Glance
The Bahamas is a chain of 700 islands, 50 miles off the Florida coast, stretching into the Caribbean Sea. Most of the islands have the same climate, making the Bahamas average temperatures ideal for biking, golfing, hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, and even shopping. You can organize some island day-trips, catamaran cruises, and adventures in the water parks, without doubting the sunshine.

Isles of Perpetual June
George Washington visited the Bahamas in the 1760’s and was so taken with the pleasant tropical climate that he called them the “Isles of Perpetual June”. The Bahamas have sunshine for approximately 310 days out of the year – not a bad average by any means!

The Bahamas islands enjoy what is known as a tropical maritime climate, meaning that the weather is influenced by the sea. There are two seasons: wet and dry.

The wet season takes place between the summer months of June to October, when the atmospheric condition is not stable, causing what is known as tropical disturbances. The region experiences the most rainfall during those months, and it can get hot and ‘muggy’.

The dry season takes place in the winter, from November to May, and the days are comfortably cooler than the summer months. Nevertheless, there is little difference in temperature between the two seasons. Aside from the amount of rainfall, the islands are typically enjoyable throughout the year.

Although the Bahamas is located in the “hurricane belt”, which covers most of the Caribbean, many storms bypass the islands. Hurricane season is from June to November.
