With the newly announced green list coming into effect as of the 30th of June 2021, it’s time to book your Barbados holidays. Whether you’re looking for cheap holidays to Barbados, Barbados holiday deals, or the best things to do in Barbados, here at Value Added Travel we’ve got you covered.
Why is Barbados so popular?
The popularity of Barbados is for a combination of many reasons. From the country’s beautiful turquoise waters, year-round sunny weather, friendly locals and delicious cuisine, it’s not hard to see why so many people embark on holidays to Barbados.
When is the best time to visit Barbados?
Barbados weather is famously warm, but the time that you visit Barbados entirely depends on your reason for visiting. If you’re on the hunt for some warm, sunny rays, it’s best to visit in Barbados’ dry season, between December and March. The weather year-round remains between 23 and 30 degrees Celsius, but during the dry season you can expect temperatures on the upper end of that spectrum.
What is the best month to visit Barbados?
If you’re looking to travel to Barbados to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and get that well-deserved getaway, we definitely recommend that you visit in March. Peak season for tourists in Barbados includes Christmas time, so if you want to avoid crowds and busy times, opt for a spring or summer time trip.
What are the best things to do in Barbados?
The beauty of Barbados is the array of once in a lifetime experiences you can discover here. From water sports to island exploration and more, there really is something for everyone on a Barbados holiday.
