What’s the weather like in Barbados in March?
Barbados has a hot tropical climate as it’s just 13 degrees north of the equator. This Caribbean island has high temperatures all year round, and March is one of the most popular months to visit. This is because it’s in the island’s dry season that runs from December until the end of May. It’s the driest month of the year, and you can look forward to lots of sun and great beach weather if you’re going at this time. There’s not much difference in weather around the island as it’s relatively flat, although the south and west Caribbean coasts tend to be warmer than the north and east Atlantic coasts. You’ll be kept cool across the island by the Atlantic winds.
The average high in capital Bridgetown is 30ºC in March, and things stay lovely and warm in the evenings. Temperatures only drop to 21ºC at night, so you won’t need to bring many warm clothes with you. At 27ºC, the sea’s ideal for swimming, while humidity’s moderate. There’s 37mm of rain over eight days, and you can expect 12 hours of daylight with eight hours of sunshine each day. Make sure you use plenty of sun cream as UV levels will be extremely high. Sunset’s just after 6pm.
