Despite their Caribbean vibe, these Atlantic (yes, Atlantic) islands are subject to cooler temperatures in the summer, not to mention that the water can get chilly in the off-season. (Ditto for the Florida Keys.) Of course, the weather in Bermuda
and the Bahamas
is likely to be milder and more pleasant than up north in January
, but you should at least have a “plan B” as an alternative to the beach if you visit these destinations in the winter, whether that’s playing golf
, getting pampered at a spa, shopping
, going on hikes or tours, or visiting local museums or historic sites.
