The Bahamas offers one of the best Caribbean experiences; you can soak up the sun on the beaches, try the water sports, play tennis, visit historic attractions, or play with the dolphins.
November marks the end of the off-season for The Bahamas. The rainfall drops – but you can easily expect some showers right smack in the middle of the day – and the temperatures start to go down, too. Pack light clothes, made from natural materials. Make sure to pack a pair of good walking shoes, water resistant.

Accommodation & Flights
November is one of the best times to visit The Bahamas. The wet season is ending and the crowds aren’t here yet. Plus, now it’s the time when there are quite a lot of deals available.
It’s a good idea to book your flight ahead of time – although 4 to 8 weeks are quite enough. When it comes to the accommodation, there are plenty of choices, depending on your travel budget: hotels , resorts , private rentals, and so on. Search ahead of time and you’ll most likely be able to find good deals and discounts.
Things to do
The beaches are the most important part of planning a vacation in the Caribbean. Who doesn’t want to escape the cold only to head to a sandy beach to get some lovely tan? Or maybe go snorkeling or trying other water sports. Check out Cabbage Beach and Cable Beach.
If you travel with the kids, head to Grand Bahama Island, where the little ones can interact with dolphins.
And while you are here, check out the Port Lucaya Marketplace. If you look for souvenirs or just want to pick up some fresh fruits, this is a lovely place to check out.
Take a walking tour of Nassau and stop to visit Christ Church Cathedral. The architecture is stunning and you can easily spend an hour or two checking it out. It’s free to visit but pay attention to the worship hours. Also, stop by Fort Charlotte – one of the three ports still standing on the island – to explore its history and see lovely views of Paradise island.
You can also explore the Lucayan National Park, located in Freeport. From trails, to underwater limestone caves and lovely beaches, this park offers hours of things to do and places to check out.
