For much of the year the climate in the northern Bahamas is similar to that of the south of Florida. In the summer the prevailing trade winds keep the place a little cooler and in the winter many cool fronts cross the area dropping the temperature to the mid 60’s. In the summer only the most casual clothing is required. In the winter a pullover and jeans might be the order of the day.
Please bring a minimum of clothing packed in a bag. No suitcases!
Any special sun lotions, cosmetics etc should be purchased in the States. Prices in the Bahamas are significantly higher than in the States.
Make sure you have a valid passport. The Bahamas is an independent nation.
