Best time to go to St James
Barbados’ climate stays pretty constant throughout the year, with temperatures never deviating far from the high 20s. Things cool down slightly in the evenings, but it can still be pretty warm and humid. The island is driest from February to May, although brief tropical rain showers in the afternoons aren’t uncommon.
Just so you know, the beaches on this stretch of coastline sometimes experience increased levels of seaweed – called sargassum. It’s influenced by the weather and ocean currents. If your hotel’s affected, the staff will do everything they can to clear it.
