  • Best time to go: While the Bahamas are warm year round – and it’s often said that there’s no bad time to visit! – there are a few things to consider when planning when to travel to the Bahamas. From July to October, it’s Hurricane season on the archipelago while high season is between November – May, meaning more crowds and higher prices. Visit in the quieter season, between May – October, for cheaper accommodation and fewer crowds on the beaches.

Things To See And Do In The Bahamas

Nassau

The capital of the Bahamas, Nassau can be found on the island of New Providence and is a bustling metropolis filled with great things to see and do. British colonial architecture can still be seen in the city, with pastel colored buildings lining the streets and lending an old world charm. Cable Beach is a great place to relax and soak up the sun; the Nassau Straw Market is an interesting place to buy locally made crafts; the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas is a must visit museum located inside an impressive Neoclassical mansion; and the Government House is well worth seeing for its architecture and the beautiful ocean views it affords. Don’t miss a trip to the nearby Paradise Island!

Relax on the beach

If there’s one image the Bahamas conjures up, it’s white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. From Treasure Cay beach on the Abacos to Sugar Beach on the Berry Islands; the popular Cabbage Beach on Paradise Island to the pink sands of Harbour Island, there’s a beach to suit all tastes. The Bahamas is also home to the famous Pig Beach, home to a colony of swimming pigs.
