Although tourists flock to the Bahamas all year, April is a unique month for the tropical destination. The first half of the month is still considered the high tourist season, when travelers head to the beaches and the bars in order to escape cold temperatures at home. There's also a heavy population of spring breakers on the island. That traffic dies down a little in the second half of April and the temperatures begin to climb, meaning you can expect warm, dry weather.
Average April Temperatures
The average high temperature in the Bahamas in April is 82 degrees Fahrenheit. It gets a little bit cooler in the evenings, and the average low temperature is 66 degrees. This offers a comfortable climate to do anything you want during the sunlight hours, and even after night falls. The weather in the Bahamas stays pretty temperate all year-round. Any month usually falls between 75 and 84 degrees F for a high. In April, travelers won't have to worry about the suffocating humidity that hits the islands during the summer months.
April Water Temperatures
No need to worry about the shock of cold water when you take a swim in the Bahamas. The water temperature year-round falls between 73 and 82 degrees F. During the month of April, expect water temperatures to hover around 75 degrees F. This is due to the tropical climate and the generally warm Atlantic waters that surround the islands of the Bahamas. Comfortably swim, snorkel, dive and enjoy all the water sports you can pack in.
All that inviting Bahamian vegetation depends on rainfall throughout most of the year. Fortunately, April does not fall into the rainy season. Most of the rain hits the Bahamas in the summer, between June and September. If you do get a little rain in April, it will likely be a passing shower and you won't be indoors for too long.
Knowing that you can expect warm, dry weather for most of the trip to the Bahamas in April, be sure to pack light. Bring shorts, T-shirts, flip flops, bathing suits and maybe a sweatshirt or a light jacket for a possible chill in the evening. Don't forget sunglasses, hats, sunscreen and aloe to protect from the Bahamas' ample sunshine.
