Bahamas

 

The 700 islands and cays of the Bahamas are made up of 13,939 sq. km of land covering 260,000 sq. km of the Atlantic Ocean.
 
Nassau the capital city is located on New Paradise Island and is the major airport. Paradise Island, new Nassau offers big hotels and a dazzling casino.

Grand Bahama: Has two resort areas; West End, a complete resort complex and the oldest settlement; and Freeport/Lucaya with nightclubs, casinos and a wealth of land and water sports. 

Bahamas is a year-round destination with pleasant temperatures throughout the year. The constant trade breeze ensures pleasant temperatures. So weather isn't a major factor in determining when to go. However, if you're visiting the southern isles they can get very hot in summer (June to August) and the mid-winter temperatures in the northerly and westerly isles can be cooler.
