What’s the weather like in Barbados in January?

Barbados is just 13 degrees north of the equator, which means the Caribbean island has a tropical climate with high temperatures all year round. If you’re going in January you can look forward to lots of sun and reducing rain, as the month is towards the start of the dry season, which is from December until the end of May. When it does rain it’s usually not for long. Atlantic winds will keep you cool, and there’s not much difference in weather around Barbados as it’s relatively flat. The south and west Caribbean coasts are normally calmer than the north and east Atlantic coasts though.


The average high in capital Bridgetown is 28ºC in January, so it’s perfect for some winter sun. Things stay nice and warm in the evenings, which only cool to 21ºC. The sea temperature is 27ºC, while humidity’s high. There’s 63mm of rain over 13 days, and 11 hours of daylight with nine hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be very high so don’t forget your sun cream. Sunset’s just before 6pm.
