What’s the weather like in Barbados in April?
Just to the north of the equator, Barbados has a tropical climate with high temperatures all year round. If you’re going in April you can expect lots of hot and sunny weather as it’s one of the driest months of the year. The dry season runs from December to late May, and if it does rain it’s not usually for long. Atlantic winds will take the edge off the heat. Barbados is relatively flat so there’s not much difference in weather around the island, although the south and west Caribbean coasts are usually a bit calmer than the north and east Atlantic coasts.
The average high in capital Bridgetown is 30ºC in April, which only drops to 22ºC at night. With these lovely temperatures you don’t need to worry about bringing many warm clothes with you, just a selection of swimwear, shorts and t-shirts. At 27ºC, the sea’s perfect for swimming, while humidity’s high. There’s 45mm of rain over seven days, and you can expect 12 hours of daylight with nine hours of sunshine each day. Bring plenty of sun cream as UV levels will be extremely high. Sunset’s just after 6pm.
