Best time to go to St James
Thanks to its tropical setting, Barbados stays toasty warm all year round – temperatures tend to hover in the mid to high 20s, although the mercury can top 30 at times. Trade winds stop things getting too scorching, though. Bear in mind that the island has a rainy season – if you want the driest weather, head here between December and May. There’s also a small risk of hurricanes between June and October, but these are rare, and hotels are well prepared for them.
Just so you know, from time to time, some hotel beaches in Barbados are affected by an increased level of seaweed. This is known as Sargassum, which is a natural occurrence that’s influenced by weather patterns and sea currents. In some cases this can disrupt the use of beaches. Rest assured that if any of our hotels are affected by this issue, they will work hard to remove the seaweed as quickly as possible.
