Nassau Weather April Averages, Bahamas
What's the Weather Like in Nassau in April
April heralds the busiest month in terms of crowds in Nassau, which although can be a little off-putting if you're after peace and quiet, does certainly mean a party atmosphere, with fantastic weather to boot! The city comes alive during most months, however as we move towards the hottest temperatures, this is a very popular month to enjoy.
Temperature and Sea Temperature
The average temperature during this month is around 23°C, which is certainly pleasant enough for beach time and exploration. The average sea temperature is warming up nicely, which means a cool down in the glittering waters is a must do; you can expect around 26°C to greet you when you head off swimming, diving, snorkelling, or off on a boat trip, however do remember sun safety at all times, especially when out on open water.
The hottest parts of the day will bring an average high temperature 27°C, and when out walking around the city, and especially when you are in busier areas with crowds, this may feel considerably hotter. Evenings are mild, yet can feel a little humid, with an average evening low temperature of around 19°C; again, at the risk of repetition, air conditioning at any time of the year in The Bahamas is a definite must have!
Rain is still thankfully low at this time, however the coming months will bring considerably more of the wet stuff. You can expect an average rainfall level of around 80mm at this time of year, which will affect around 9 days to some degree or another. This means simply a few short downpours from time to time, which will clear quite quickly.
Of course, the sun is ever present, and this month sees a huge 10 hours of sunshine per day
Nassau Hotels in April
A Stone's Throw Away
If you don't want to splash out on one of the city's biggest beach front hotels, A Stone's Throw Away is a great choice. This three star hotel, offers room only board basis. Close to everything you need, the hotel is set in a slightly quieter location, which means you won't be bothered by noise; there are also only ten rooms available. The outdoor pool is large, and rooms have view over the terrace or gardens.
Sandyport Beaches Resort
If you do want to splash out, then Sandyport Beaches Resort is a good option. The pretty pastel coloured buildings are truly Caribbean, and the waterfront location means you don't have too far to wander for your day's enjoyment. There are 72 rooms in total, and all have everything you could possibly need, including that stretch of private beach, an outdoor pool, and water slides for the kids to enjoy. This is a good option for families, with two restaurants and several pools.
Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa Resort & Offshore Island
Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa Resort & Offshore Island is a great option for honeymooners especially, located on Cable Beach, with an all inclusive programme. There are watersports on offer and a nightly entertainment programme to enjoy. There is also a golf course only five minutes' away, and plenty of areas for rest, relaxation, and privacy.
Nassau Beaches in April
One of the best named beaches on the island is certainly Love Beach. Aside from the name this is one of the most vibrant beaches on the island, and home to Nirvana Beach Bar, which is always full of live. The water is calm here, but the rocks which go out into the water should be traversed with care, as they can become slippery. The long stretch of white sand and clear blue sea is the ideal backdrop for your day of relaxation.
Bars and Restaurants
Social House Sushi & Grill
If you are a seafood fan, particularly sushi, then Social House Sushi & Grill is for you. You can try many different types of Asian or Japanese dishes here, and the staff are very friendly, on-hand to answer your questions before you order. The décor is modern and the whole vibe is quite funky, which is totally different to many of the restaurants you will find in and around Nassau.
The Bearded Clam
Of course, seafood comes in many different guises, and if you prefer yours cooked, check out The Bearded Clam. Traditional Bahamian food involves many different types of fish, however fish fry is a popular one. This is a fun restaurant/pub, and you will find lots of local brews to try too.
Goldie's Conch House
Goldie's Conch House is another traditional option, with soups, Caribbean dishes, and seafood to try. The great news is that this is quite an affordable restaurant, and the portions are large. The jerk chicken and snapper are two very popular options to try.
Things to Do in Nassau in April
Tru Bahamian Food Tours
The hotter months are yet to come, so you can easily get out and about and explore the city. A guided walking tour is a great way to experience the city with the help of a knowledgeable guide, and a food walking tour is a truly fun day out.

You will find out about the fresh ingredients used in popular dishes, as well as learning how they are grown, and trying the dishes out for yourself.
If you don't want to solely go down the food line then Islandz Tours offers a great cultural walking tours of the downtown area. There are many different tour types to try, including the rum and food walking tour, beer tasting, or city scavenger tour. This particular tour is great fun and is a 90 minutes' adventure, where you are split into teams, given a map, and you have to find the top sights around the city and tick them off your list.
John Watling's Distillery
Of course, if it is rum you're interested in then you simply have to head to John Watling's Distillery. Here you get to see how rum is made first-hand and learn about the products history. To get to the distillery you will need to walk just over half a mile from the downtown area, but once you are there you will be enveloped in air conditioned heaven! The guides are informative and the whole experience is fun, whilst also allowing you try some special rums for yourself, and perhaps buy a bottle or two to take home.
