Winter in the Bahamas is the best time of the year for getting out there and trying new things; the weather stays around a balmy 74 degrees with sunny skies and little rain. How can you not want to be outside doing new things when it’s this perfect? Of course, our piece of paradise is pretty close to perfect anytime you visit, but if you’re planning on a Winter in the Bahamas vacation this year, here is a guide to some fun things you might want to try during your Harbour Island winter escape!

Take a Peek of the Loyalist Cottage this Winter in the Bahamas

Located on Bay Street, this charming cottage was once the home to one of the original settlers of Harbour Island and its colorful exterior shines brighter in the winter sunshine. Built in 1797, its creamy white exterior is accented with dark teal shutters and its charm and appeal makes it the most frequently photographed home on the island. It’s not open to tourists, but just being able to see the exterior makes this local favorite a special treat during your stay.

Pink Beach Day

Every day is a great day at the beach on Harbour Island, but in the winter, you can really make your friends back home jealous when you visit our famous pink sand beach! Pack for a day of fun in the sun; beach blankets or chairs, a cooler of treats, and of course, don’t forget the sunscreen! The pink sand, created from the shells of tiny sea creatures that inhabit our waters, is a delight to see, but pink or even red skin from overexposure to the sun is not fun to experience!

Dive Deep

Winter in the Bahamas is the best time to try new things and with the warm waters lapping at our shores even in January, February or even March, why not try diving? Valentines Dive Center, located right here on Harbour Island offers certification, refresher classes, and of course, dive trips that will blow your mind. The beauty of the undersea world is destined to create a new obsession within you, and this dive center is happy to be the place that starts the fire!

Staying in and Playing

For many of us, vacation accommodations have only been a place to sleep at night, as we rush to start new adventures with the rising of the sun each day, but we think your winter Harbour Island escape should be different. Our Bahamas Real Estate vacation getaways offer luxury amenities and a lifestyle of elegance that would be a shame not to explore! Private pools, ocean views, and in many cases, private beaches meant for sun worshipping and relaxation; these are just a few of the wonders that you can expect from our homes.
