It is warm and sunny all year round with an average daytime high of 75 - 85oF. The nights are usually slightly cooler. The prevailing northeast tradewinds blow steadily so that although it is bright and sunny, it is not unbearably hot.
The rain usually comes in quick showers. The dry season lasts from January to June.
We are in the tropics, and believe it or not, some people actually put on a sweater in the cool night winter time breezes. Barbadians complain that the sea is cold when its 78 F !!!
Generally the seas on the West coast are the calmest, but good, safe, quiet swimming is available in the many tranquil bays along the South West and the South that touch the Caribbean Sea. If you like calm waters with a soft sandy bottom, then the West Coast is probably the best of these conditions, but seasonal variations can cause things to change.
Here you will find seas of gentle waves for body surfing and tumbling in the water. There are rollers for surfing with buggy boards and surfboards and some of the best windsurfing in the world. Annual surfing competitions and international surfing meets are held on both the South and East Coasts.
EAST AND NORTH COASTS
The East and North coasts of Barbados meet the Atlantic Ocean where huge waves crash along the shore and coral reefs. This coast is not recommended for swimming except for a few of the very protected bays. There are strong currents and fierce waves beating on the rugged coral to create a spectacle of power of a wild and rugged sea. If you love the sea at its wildest you must visit the East Coast, but don't swim unless you are with someone who knows the area well
|The west coast of Barbados is often referred to as the "Platinum Coast" and is renowned for the clear warm waters that lap gently onto golden sands.
There are several magnificent beaches along this coast ... which is the best? Only you can decide! At each one of the wst coast beaches you will find calm azure waters that are perfect for swimming and clean coral sands on which to relax and soak up the brilliant sunshine.
|Crane Beach on the south coast.....
Crane Beach, originally a harbour, is considered by many to be one of the island's most beautiful beaches. In fact, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous rated it as "one of the ten best beaches in the world"! The name "Crane" was derived from the large crane situated at the top of the cliff which was used for loading and unloading ships. The Crane Beach Hotel, standing on the cliff above the beach, has been a favorite with honeymooners since it opened in 1867.
|Little Bay, located on the north-east coast of Barbados, is a unique spot with interesting pools, breathtaking scenery and magnificent blowholes!
Set among the rugged cliffs that are typical of this area of the island, Little Bay is truly a little haven. Nature has created a small "swimming pool" carved out of the rock and this pool is safe for swimming. Beyond the rocks the waves are powerful, smashing into the rocks and creating lovely blowholes that spout high into the air. A climb onto the cliffs overlooking Little Bay provides a wonderful view of the Bay and the northern coastline but be sure to wear shoes as the rocks are quite sharp.
