Barbados Weather in August

Some folks just can get enough of the hot weather, and if that’s you, then Barbados weather in August is perfect.  It is hot, hazy, and humid!

There is a higher chance of rain in August due to the hurricane season.  This can come in short spurts on any given day, or heavy rain. 

Despite that, there are also many glorious hours of sunshine and heat.

The heat is not the only thing Barbados weather in August brings with it.  It also brings Crop Over, a two-month long celebration that starts in June and ends in August. 

The month of August falls within the Caribbean hurricane season and rain is expected.  How much rain is anyone’s guess, but don’t be discouraged by the news.  It can vary from a few sprinkles to heavy rain at times.

There have been some heavy downpours during the Caribbean hurricane season in the past, and I think I can speak for the general populous when I say that neither hurricane nor torrential rain will stop the Barbadian carnival revelers.  The show must go on.  And boy, does it ever!

Thinking of Traveling to Barbados in August?

Finding a good fare in the month of August is doable.  If you can, try to plan way ahead of time (best: 4-5 months) to take advantage of the lowest fares before the carnival crowd arrives. 

Early morning flights (6:00 a.m.) and late night flights (around 10:00 p.m.) tend to be the cheapest.  Be ahead of the pack by jumping on the airline’s summer calendar as soon as it becomes available.

If you love hot temperatures and the allure of carnival, Barbados weather in August will provide you with plenty to see and do. 

If you’re really concerned about hurricanes, you might want to consider trip insurance. 

Despite that, traveling to Barbados for the weather in August has its advantages:

  1. Low tourist season + riskier travel time = better hotel deals
  2. Proactive planning + airline stalking = unbeatable airfares
