All visitors to Barbados must have a passport and valid return ticket to be allowed entry. Passport must be valid for the duration of your stay.


With a rugged eastern coast that is pounded by the rolling breakers of the Atlantic and a western coast that is lapped by the gentle waves of the Caribbean seas, Barbados has a beach for everyone. Just 21 miles long and 14 miles wide, Barbados retains a distinctive West Indian Culture; rich in arts, theatre, music and nightlife. The capital city of Bridgetown offers great shopping, art galleries and theatres. The island has a number of sites of historical, architectural and natural interest and it is these that make Barbados unique and your time here something special.

Lovely tropical island enjoys perfect weather. On average each year, the daily high temperature is 30oC / 86oF with some 3,000 hours of sunshine, and it gets cooler (but never really cold) at night. The Barbados climate includes pleasant and revitalising north-east tradewinds almost every day, and Barbados ocean temperatures are deliciously warm (26-29oC / 79-84oF) all year round.

There are two main seasons – the dry season (during the northern hemisphere winter and spring) when the temperatures are a bit cooler and we experience less rain, and the wet season (during the northern hemisphere summer and autumn) when days are likely to be warmer and we expect higher rainfall.

Barbados weather can change several times in a day. Average rainfall is less than 6 mm (1/4 inch) per day, and the occasional shower of rain can be very welcome – it’s likely to freshen up your day without spoiling your plans.
