With sugary white beaches, warm turquoise waters and over 3,000 hours of sunshine annually, Barbados attracts tourists year-round. Although the area receives moderate weather throughout the year, the best time to visit is generally during the dry season lasting from December to May. During these months the weather is pleasantly warm with cool nights and limited rainfall and humidity. Temperatures rise slightly from June through November with increased humidity. Barbados' hurricane season lasts from June 1 through November 30, but hurricanes rarely hit Barbados.
