The climate of Grand Bahama (Bahamas)
Grand Bahama is situated in the northern part of the Bahamas and is the fourth largest island of the country. The largest city on the island is Freeport. The coast of Florida is less than 100 kilometers away from Grand Bahama. The island has a turbulent past. It used to be a colony of Spain and Great Britain and was claimed by several pirates throughout history. Nowadays tourism is the main source of income for the island. Cruise ships make a stop over in Port Lucaya on a regular basis. Thanks to these cruise ships there is a steady flow of tourists. Several resorts can be found in Lucaya. Lucaya National Park is in the vicinity. This park has the oldest underwater cave system in the entire world. West End, which is the oldest city on Grand Bahama is located in the western part of the island. Grand Bahama has a tropical savannah climate. This climate can be divided into two seasons; a dry season and a rainy season. The rainy season is quite heavy with many showers. However, temperatures remain high. This makes for high humidity figures as well. During the dry period temperatures are high as well, so this is the best period to visit Grand Bahama. During the rainy period there is a risk of hurricanes and tropical storms.
