Bahamas Cruises Travel Tips

  • All of the locals here are used to a slow lifestyle, and they live very relaxedly. Because of this, don't plan on sticking to a reliable schedule because you may not always be able to get reliable transportation.
  • Paradise Island is the most popular place to visit because it's home to Atlantis, but make sure you get out and explore the rest of the Bahamas too when you visit. The Bahamas is more than just Atlantis!
  • Keep in mind that water sports here aren't regulated. So, be careful if someone comes up to you and offers you rentals, boats, etc. Think carefully before you purchase!
  • Yes, your resort will most likely have its own convenience store. However, don't purchase anything from these convenience stores if you want to save money. Instead, opt to visit one of the local grocery stores.
  • It is super easy to get a taxi in the Bahamas, but for safety reasons, make sure that you only get in one that is marked and is licensed. To be safe, consider asking your resort receptionist to order a taxi for you.

Bahamas Cruises Things To Do

  • Swim at the famous Stocking Island
    Swim at the famous Stocking Island

    Stocking Island is a 3-mile island that is extremely skinny and long. It's located near Georgetown and is home to resorts and beautiful beaches that you won't want to miss. The easiest way to get to the island is by hopping on a boat from Elizabeth Harbor. The beaches at Stocking Island are most well-known for their glorious white sand. The beaches here are also some of the best spots to dive to see underwater caves and coral reefs. On the island, visitors will be able to find Stromatolites. This is one of the world's oldest fossils!

    You Should Know

    You could easily spend a full day exploring Stocking Island, so plan your trip to the island wisely!  

  • Visit Pig Beach
    Visit Pig Beach

    Pig Beach in the Bahamas is right on Big Major Cay. It's aptly named for being home to wild pigs, so it's popularly visited by tourists and locals! The beach runs on for about 1 mile. The easiest way to get to Pig Beach is by hopping on a boat or plane, but you can also book tours to bring you to the area. You can go swimming with the pigs and hold them right at the beach, but use standard precautions and be kind to them because this is their home.

    You Should Know

    You could easily walk the whole length of the Pig Beach island if you wanted. It would take around 1 hour!  

  • Relax at Harbor Island
    Relax at Harbor Island

    Harbor Island is a part of the Bahamas that is most well-known for its unique pink sand beaches. When people first thing of the Bahamas, they most likely think of Harbor Island without even realizing it. You'll also want to check out Dunmore Town when you visit here, one of the best places to see 18th-century architecture that resembles that of New England. That's because Loyalists came and settled here during that time. Whether you come for an afternoon or a whole day, you'll want to at least step foot on Harbor Island when you visit the Bahamas!

    You Should Know

    The easiest way to get here is from Eleuthera. You can hop on a water taxi, and it shouldn't take long. There are also direct boats from Nassau.  

  • Visit the Nassau Straw Market
    Visit the Nassau Straw Market

    The Nassau Straw Market is a huge flea market that sells everything from quaint local crafts made from straw to fun souvenirs that you'll want to take home. The market dates back to the 1940s when the locals frequented it. After World War II, tourists who visited the Bahamas learned about the market, and the local crafts that were sold there became very popular. There are a few different markets throughout the Bahamas, but none is as iconic as the Nassau Straw Market. Even if you don't plan to purchase anything, try to visit at least once, walk through the stalls, and even chat with a few vendors. This is a great way to mingle with locals.

    Best Time To Visit

    This market tends always to be busy. If you want to go when the least amount of others are there, try to visit right when it opens.  

  • Explore the Wyannie Malone Historical Museum
    Explore the Wyannie Malone Historical Museum

    The Wyannie Malone Historical Museum features Hope Town artifacts and exhibits. There is also an extensive archive for those interested in learning about their genealogy if they're from the area. The museum itself is located inside of an old cottage that dates back to the 19th century. It is named after the Hope Town founder. This is the perfect place to go, regardless of age, if you're interested in learning history.

    You Should Know

    The Wyannie Malone Historical Museum usually is not open on the weekends.  

  • Shop at Port Lucaya Marketplace
    Shop at Port Lucaya Marketplace

    The Port Lucaya Marketplace differs from the Nassau Straw Market in that it's more touristic. However, it's filled with just as fun and is still worth visiting. There are vendors selling souvenirs, clothes, crafts, and more inside. If you get hungry, there are also a few bars and restaurants to grab a bite to eat. It's the biggest marketplace in all of the Bahamas and covers 9.5 acres of land. The most popular stands to visit here include the Coconut & Fruit Daiquiri Stand and Daddy Brown's Conch and Seafood Stand.

    You Should Know

    The marketplace is open-air, so make sure that you dress appropriately for the weather.  

  • See history at Fort Fincastle
    See history at Fort Fincastle

    Fort Fincastle is in Nassau and was built as a fortress to protect the island from possible pirates who wanted to invade. Lord Dunmore made it back in 1793, and today it's one of the most historical places to visit on the island. It's located right on Bennet's Hill to overlook the harbor and the town down below. Though the fort is relatively small, it's still worth visiting to learn more about its history. You may here some locals refer to the fort as Viscount Fincastle, which is its other name.

    You Should Know

    There are guided tours offered daily of the fort.  

  • Go to the Atlantis Casino
    Go to the Atlantis Casino

    The Atlantis Casino is located on Paradise Island, the most-frequented island by visitors to the Bahamas. The island covers 685 acres and is home to the rest of the Atlantis Resort. It's one of the top places to visit when going to the Bahamas. The Atlantis Casino opened in 1968 and is the perfect place to go for entertainment. It's located right inside the resort and is near Aquaventure. The inside of the casino is incredibly grand and is decorated with an ocean theme.

    You Should Know

    The casino is always busy, but that doesn't make it any less fun. You must be 18 to participate in the games at the casino.  

  • Have some fun at Aquaventure
    Have some fun at Aquaventure

    Aquavaenture is a vast theme park on Paradise Island that's also part of the Atlantis. It covers 141 acres of the island and consists of some of the world's best waterslides, swimming pools, and even a lazy river if you want to relax and float! This theme park is perfect for all ages. Visiting the water park is a great way to cool off, especially if you're visiting during the Bahamas warmer season. Plan on spending at least a full day here!

    You Should Know

    Even if you aren't staying at the hotel, you are welcome to visit Aquaventure as long as you pay the admission price.  

Bahamas Cruises When To Visit

Quick Facts

Compared to most other places, the Bahamas experience perfect weather every single month. It truly doesn't matter when you visit, because you will experience great temperatures and sunny days. However, certain parts of the year receive more rain and some months are also prone to hurricanes. The busiest time to visit the Bahamas is in the winter, and the least amount of people visit the Bahamas during the summer. The spring and fall seasons are considered to be the shoulder seasons for the Bahamas.

  • Spring and Fall - September to November and March to May - Shoulder Season

    The shoulder seasons are arguably one of the best times to visit the Bahamas because not many people visit during this time, and the weather isn't as scorching as it is in the summer months. The spring months average 76°F, and the fall months average about the same.

  • Summer - June to August - Low Season

    Summer is the low season for the Bahamas. Not many people visit during this time because the weather is warmer, averaging around 88°F as a high every day and 74°F as a low. Prices are at their most reasonable during these months because there aren't a lot of visitors. However, expect that all tourist attractions will still be open, even if there is a lack of visitors!

  • Winter - December to February - High Season

    The winter months are the high season in the Bahamas because everyone loves to escape the cold weather that they might get elsewhere in North America. During the winter, the temperature averages around 70°F, making it the perfect winter getaway. Since it's the busiest time, prices are at their highest.
