What weather to expect

August is in the middle of Barbados' rainy season and there's likely to be some showers during the month. The good news is that the rains are quickly driven off-island by the constant tradewinds, so that sunny weather is soon restored.

August is also within the Atlantic hurricane season. Again there is good news, as Barbados has not been struck by a major hurricane since 1955!

August Travel Tips

Although it's the rainy season there is lots of sunshine and the temperatures are pretty warm (usually a max. of 31°C / 88°F) so remember to apply sunscreen and drink lots of water.

The Crop Over summer festival reaches its peak on the first Monday in August with the grand carnival parade (called Kadooment). Visit the island at the end of July & early August to experience the fun and excitement of this typical Caribbean festival.
