With picturesque beaches and clear, cerulean waters as far as the eye can see, the Bahamas are a perfect place for a relaxing getaway. The Bahamas archipelago consists of approximately 700 islands, cays and islets, which make it rich in beauty and an excellent Caribbean destination to explore by land or sea. Activities such as snorkeling, diving, swimming and fishing are popular attractions, ensuring high demand for Bahamas vacation rentals all year long.
The Bahamas boasts a warm, steady climate year-round with its peak season running from September to May. Throughout these months, temperatures average between 70 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. During the summer months, the temperature reaches a steady 80 to 85 degrees. When planning a trip to the Bahamas, it isn’t the threat of cold weather that can bring travel to a halt; but rather the threat of hurricane season. Hurricane season is from June to November when it can be difficult, but not impossible, to plan a perfect vacation. Check the weather carefully when planning your trip, so you can map out the best Bahamas vacation.
Things to Do
The Bahamas are home to countless beaches, the clearest waters, and many water-based activities, including diving, snorkeling, and exploring underwater caves, which are frequently enjoyed. Let Powerboat Adventures take your group out on the water to discover the beautiful reefs and marine life under the sea, feed stingrays and photograph sharks throughout the day. Dolphin excursions and parasailing trips add excitement and adventure to every vacation.
For a relaxing beach day, head to Treasure Cay Beach in The Abacos as it is renowned for its sugary sands and clear, turquoise waters. Other favorites include Cable Beach in Nassau, Pink Sands Beach on Harbour Island, and Gold Rock Beach on Grand Bahama Island. Choose from a variety of Bahamas vacation rentals with beach access, or stay on one of the Bahama islands with your favorite beaches.
Out of the water, climb The Queen’s Staircase on Paradise Island. This major landmark consists of 66 solid limestone steps and is located in the Fort Fincastle Historic Complex. The Cloisters are impressive remains of the French Monastery, and are also worth exploring while on Paradise Island. In Nassau, witness the changing of the guard at the Government House or visit the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo & Conservation Centre to see the variety of animal species that inhabit the area.
Food & Dining
When visiting the Bahamas, you’ll find a rich selection of delectable cuisine and dining choices. Seafood is a staple in the Bahamian diet. Try conch fried and served as a fritter, or indulge in fresh conch sprinkled with flavorful spices and a dash of lime juice. This ocean mollusk is what the Bahamas are most known for and every island has its own unique recipe for conch. Tropical fruits like coconuts, mangoes, and guava, are also commonly included in many Bahamian dishes and drinks. Indulge in jerk chicken and delightful fruit daiquiris on Nassau’s Junkanoo Beach at Tiki Bikini Hut, or experience fine dining at The Flying Fish in Freeport.
Popular seasonal events and festivals take place all throughout the year here. Plan your trip around a specific event and then book one of the many Bahamas vacation rentals in advance for your perfect place to stay. Many events, such as Gregory Town’s Pineapple Fest and the All Andros Crab Fest in Eleuthera, celebrate specific Bahamian cuisine. Regattas are also common social events that feature days of sailing and onshore festivals with food and lively entertainment. In December, locals and visitors alike celebrate Junkanoo, a traditional Bahamian street parade of music, choreographed dance and art held in Nassau.
Bahamas vacation rentals provide the perfect setting to create lasting memories with friends and loved ones. Explore the vast number of islands scattered about the seascape or stay put on one of the main islands for ultimate relaxation. There’s no wrong time to visit this tropical paradise.
