Averages for Half Moon Cay in January
Half Moon Cay, otherwise known as Little San Salvador Island, is just one of the 700 islands that comprise the archipelago of the Bahamas and it recently underwent a $225 million improvement plan.
Being part of the Bahamas, Half Moon Cay tends to enjoy hot weather.
Although January is a winter month, the average high temperature is 25°C (78°F) and the average low is 17°C (63°F), which is not only the coldest time of year but also makes it perfectly warm enough to be out enjoying the area.
With temperatures like those it goes without saying that Half Moon Cay has a lot of sunshine, and January averages 7 hours of sun per day.
January is also the driest month in terms of rainfall, with just 39mm precipitation on average.
The temperatures make a day on the beach a good option,
and the average sea temperature is 25°C
(77°F), so it’s also a great time for swimming or snorkelling.
Half Moon Cay is situated in a protective bay so the waters remain calm, making it perfect for both these activities.
It’s not just swimming that can be enjoyed in the water; at Half Moon Cay you’ll find one of the most developed water sports programmes of any of the private islands, so you get plenty of options.These options include renting a Sunfish Sailboat, Hobie Catamaran, Windsurfer Sailboards, kayaks, float mats and aqua cycles. In addition to this you can partake in snorkelling, scuba diving and jet-skiing.
It isn’t all about the water of course, and there’s plenty to do
on land. Nature trails, basketball
courts, games and of course sandy
beaches provide you with plenty of choice.
