Exuma weather in August??

We are planning a trip to Exuma August 2017 and wondering what the weather is usually like? I know hurricane season begins in June and ends in November and I am wondering if it would be better to go in early August and not the end of August, since in past it seems like hurricanes really seem to start by September.

Any input would be great and yes I understand that no one can predict the weather but if anyone has travelled there in summer I would appreciate their input. Also planning on staying at Sandals.

Can't comment on August but we LOVE early July. Water is calm and warm. Hardly any wind. But it's HOT and humid. This past July on Cat was the hottest I've ever experienced but honestly one of my best trips yet. As long as you have a place to cool off and some shade you should be fine. You can get a tropical storm or the daily afternoon shower but I'd say historically the bad storms happen Sep, Oct and Nov.

I pretty much agree with what Jungledriver said. In fact July is also my favorite time of year for the reasons she said, but ALSO because the hours of daylight are at their longest then (the latest sunset at 23 degrees latitude is actually 3 weeks after the summer solstice)

That being said, I'd absolutely aim to complete your trip by the middle of August. After that, the risk or tropical storms increases significantly.

We visit exuma annually as we have a home on the island and have found August to be a great time to go. The water is fantastically warm and our kids love it. The odds of a hurricane are extremely remote and if you are worried you could always get the travel insurance. Need to have a house with AC otherwise you will die and also put on lots of bug spray at the beaches for the noseeums.

Stock up on bug spray. Anytime of year in Exuma is honestly fabulous, August included.

This will be our first time visit in Aug, arriving the 4th. I have never worried about the weather or the forecasts. If the weather ends up sucking, we'll just send our kids home and stay longer!

End of July early Aug is a great time to go , I've been going in that time frame for the last 4 years Exuma/Eleuthera and have always had brilliant weather, it will be hot 🌞 and the water will be just perfect 😊 I will be heading back this year too " same time frame " last 2 weeks of August leading into Sept will up the chances of tropical weather conditions ,

Hello! We are thinking to Exuma / Eleuthera for our honeymoon in early august but we are afraid to find too much rain that could spoil our time there. Has someone been there in the last August? How was the weather? Thanks!
