Two words: Spring Break! The Bahamas fills with students taking advantage of the lovely weather. It’s crowded, it’s expensive, it’s crazy…avoid it if you don’t like that sort of thing for your vacation. But the weather is nice and you can get a lovely tan. Or escape the beach and visit the historical sites.
The temperature starts to go up but the chance of precipitation is still low. No need for a jacket at night now, but make sure to pack light clothing for the day.

Things to do
The youngsters pretty much fill the beaches now , looking for parties, tanning and fun. You can escape to less-crowded beaches , if you don’t fancy the hustle and bustle.
Or you can put on your walking shoes and explore the historical sites in Nassau. The three main forts – Fort Charlotte, Fort Fincastle and Fort Montagu – offer excellent insight into the history. Plus, the views of the areas are amazing.
Put on your walking shoes and head to one of the trails in the national park. Explore the underwater caves or just soak up the sun on the beaches.
If you travel with the kids, take them to swim with dolphins. Or plan to visit some museums.
