Sandy white beaches, clear turquoise waters and an abundance of sunshine draw tourists to the Bahamas year-round. The 700 low-lying islands that make up the Bahamas chain experience similar
climates with slight variances in temperatures depending on the location. Balmy weather and light breezes are characteristic throughout the year; however, the best time to visit is generally
during the dry season lasting from November through April. During these months the weather is pleasantly warm with cool nights and limited rainfall and humidity. Temperatures rise slightly
during the rainy season from May through October with the increased humidity making it seem hotter. The Bahamas' hurricane season lasts from June 1 through November 30, but hurricanes are
fairly infrequent to the area.
