Best time to Visit the Bahamas

The holidays can be expensive during the high season. Really promotional airline tickets are available during the hurricane season, but there is a risk you end up getting inside your room most of the time.

It is best to book flights during the off-season months of May to October. However, at any time of the year, you will find the most clear water in the world, with temperatures that call for a swim. A wetsuit you never need in the bahamas if you look on the great water temperatures arround the year.

The Summer months are, of course, the ones with higher temperature, around 80º F, but even during the rest of the year, it never goes below 72º F. Chartered planes make it easier and faster to travel from one island to another. Ferries are another way of traveling between the islands, which have links with the capital.
