Bahamas Travel GuideWhen to visit the Bahamas
Consisting of nearly 700 islands and islets, fewer than 30 of which are inhabited, the Bahamas remain a mysterious and exciting place to vacation. The climate stays fairly warm throughout the year and is interrupted only by occasional light and intermittent showers, especially during the summer rainy season. Breezes off the Atlantic Ocean help to keep the islands cool during the winter, making it the best time to visit.
