ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
The Bahamas are located about 100 miles east of the Florida coast, in the Atlantic Ocean. Although it's comprised of 700 islands, only 30 are occupied as most of the rest of them are under water.
The breathtaking scenery, beautiful weather along with historical sites, parks, trails, nature centers, botanical gardens, casinos, beaches, golf, diving and many more activities too numerous to mention, offer something for every traveler.
Don't forget the food – Bahamian cuisine is centered around fresh fish such as red snapper, grouper, lobster, and the islands' favorite – conch. There's also fritters, chowder, pigeon peas and johnny cakes to enjoy.
CONVENTION AND VISITOR BUREAUS:
- Electricity: 110/120V, 60Hz
- Times to Travel: The weather in the Bahamas doesn't vary much from season to season, so any time of the year is great for travel.
The temperature variation between summer and winter is only about 10°. Winter averages 75° F (24° C), so it's a popular time to visit. The summer is a bit warmer and there is more humidity due to higher rainfall.
The high season is from mid-December to mid-April, when there are more people visiting, attractions are busier and prices are higher.
With the perfect location, nearly perfect climate and a perfect environment featuring sparkling turquoise water and white sandy beaches, the Bahamas is a "go to" destination any time of the year.
