Nassau Weather November Averages, Bahamas
What's the Weather Like in Nassau in November
The latter part of the year is a popular time to head to The Bahamas, and you will find countless Caribbean cruises which are heading in this direction this time of year. Nassau is a popular drop off spot because it is the capital, and because there is so much to see and do. As mentioned previously that the city is sheltered somewhat from the brunt of the worst Atlantic storms, and this certainly adds to its appeal too.
November brings slightly lower temperatures, but also much reduced rainfall, which is a definite perk to visiting at this time of year. You can expect an average temperature of around 25°C during this particular month, which during the hottest parts of the month can reach up to 28°C; certainly reduced compared to the previous few months, and much fresher as a result. Evenings are also thankfully more comfortable, with an evening low of around 21°C to be expected across the month.
Despite the slight reduction in temperature, the amount of sunshine you can expect holds relatively firm, with around 8 hours of sunshine per day on average across the month.
This means that exploring the capital city can be done much more easily than when rainfall is more likely and temperatures are higher, which makes this particular month a popular one. Speaking of rainfall, you can expect around 100mm of precipitation across the month in total, which falls on around 11 days again, this is a drastic drop compared to the previous few months. Rain can never be ruled out at any time on a tropical island, but this time of year is much less likely to be torrential, especially as the hurricane season is now drawing to a close for another year.
The beaches are still busy, as they are at any time of the year, with the average sea temperature warmer than the average air temperature! The glittering waters are at around 27°C at this time.
Nassau Hotels in November
Later in the year is a very popular time to visit Nassau, and if you are staying here for a longer period of time, or you want to enjoy homely comforts, then Arawak Inn is a good choice. This is a small establishment with a studio apartment, almost like a home away from home bungalow. Centrally located, but in a residential area, you can cook for yourself if you like, or you can head out and sample the nightlife and restaurants if you prefer.
Sun Fun Resort
Sun Fun Resort is exactly what it says on the tin fun! This is a great place to stay for families, with a large outdoor swimming pool and private beach area. All rooms are large, have Wi-Fi, and air conditioning, and the private balconies have wonderful views. This is a good budget option too, located just out of the main street, so a quieter atmosphere overall. Similarly, Luxor Condos offer the same quiet, homely place to stay, with a large outdoor pool, and kitchenettes in every room.
Nassau Beaches in November
Go Slow Bay
A beach with a charming name, Go Slow Bay, certainly sums up the laid back, slow nature of this particular beach. Small and hidden away, you will find this area just a few minutes' walk from the much busier Cable Beach. This is not as big, but that doesn't make it a bad thing, the waves here are quite large, great for surfing not so great for children.
Bars and Restaurants
If you are looking for some good old fashioned Italian nosh then it has to be Carmine's. This is a bright, fun, and laid-back restaurant with a huge menu of delicious Italian dishes. The pasta here comes in massive portions, so do keep this in mind when ordering, but they also offer French and other European specialities too, as well as seafood.
Continuing with the international vibe, check out Nobu for Japanese dining at its best. This is a very modern and busy restaurant, so you might need to book your table, particularly at weekends. Or, if you're going for something more authentic, then Andros The Fish Fry gives you delicious fresh seafood to try, all in a laid-back beach shack building.
