Barbados weather is mostly sunny all year long, with temperatures averaging between 75 degrees to 85 degrees (24C – 30C). It is kept cool by the steady influx of the northeast tradewinds. The dry season is from January to June. July through December is the wet season, with short, heavy rains that dry quickly. June through October is the typical hurricane season, but the last hurricane to directly hit Barbados was in 1955.
The most ideal time to travel to Barbados depends entirely upon personal preferences. Those who want milder, yet warm weather and to get away from winter typically go from December through May. There is more of a tourist crowd during this time of year. June through November is the “off” season, bringing smaller crowds, lower prices, and a more authentic Barbados culture.
