Does the sound of calm waves crashing into the soft white sandbanks, crystal blue water, and nothing but relaxation in the air sound like a dream to you? This is the kind of dream that can become a reality in a place like the Bahamas. If you’re thinking of planning a trip to the Bahamas anytime soon, it helps to know what the best times to travel there are.
First off, you should ask yourself what kind of vacation you want to experience…
Perfect Weather | If you want to experience the perfect weather outside of hurricane season, the best time is mid-December to mid-April. These months will experience less rainfall than the rest of the year, allowing you to get the most of what the Bahamas has to offer. However, it’s peak time in the Bahamas which means it will be busy during these months. This means you may have to deal with lines at most places. This may sound the opposite of relaxing, but with perfect temperatures in high 70’s to low 80’s and clear skies, how can you pass up this time of the year?
Island Vacation on A Budget | If you’re looking for an island vacation on a budget, consider visiting the Bahamas between late April and early December. The crowds are thinner this time of the year and great hotels are anywhere up to 60 percent discounted. However, visiting during these months can also mean high chances of rainfall and even hurricanes. Therefore, it’s highly suggested to purchase travel insurance if traveling during these months. In addition, many Bahamian properties also schedule maintenance during these months, making it a noisy atmosphere in some areas.
Non-Stop Party Vacation | If you’re looking for a party it up kind of vacation, visit the Bahamas during Spring Break! From the end of February to Mid-April, the islands are packed with college kids looking for fun in the sun. Many local nightclubs host beach parties and sports events. Hotels book up quickly during this time of the year, so be sure to make those reservations in advance!
