Why Barbados makes a great off-season destination

The gorgeous weather

As Barbados is the most easterly of the Caribbean islands, it thankfully avoids the majority of hurricanes that pass through the region during the off season. Wet and steaming roads are occasionally apparent upon stepping outside, but the showers tend to be short lived. Ten minutes of rain a day in exchange for a heavenly, peaceful vacation? Not a bad deal.

Temperatures are on average a balmy 30°C during the day throughout the summer months, which makes for the perfect excuse to spend the whole day lounging in a hammock with a page-turner or a freshly shaken daiquiri (preferably both) in between plenty of plunges in the bath-like sea. It only dips to around 27°C at night, but you can trust the sea breeze to keep you cool after sunset.
