Weather in Barbados – Barbadian climate

Barbados is a warm and inviting country in many ways, and it is an established holiday destination for various reasons; however, one main factor in particular is the favourable climate. As with most tropical islands, the coastal regions are warmer, and these are where the main holiday resorts can be found. Barbados is divided into 11 parishes, each offering unique experiences but generally sharing the same delightful weather patterns.

The majority of holidaymakers and property investors head to the coastal areas, so we will concentrate on those regions for the weather and climate reports.
