1. Less crowded
Okay so the peak season isn't like walking down Oxford Street in London but during the peak season it can get busy especially in the south and Barbados West Coast. The summer months mean less crowded beaches, restaurants with tables without having to book days in advance and the ability to book car hire or day trips at your leisure.
2. Great choice of villas
During the peak season Barbados vacation rentals can get booked up very quickly with many having repeat visitors each year. The summer months allow you to get the villa rental of your choice even if it is during the children's summer holidays.
3. Lower prices
A huge incentive. Prices are considerably lower than during the peak season. In some cases by more than half the price of during the peak period.
4. Discounts available
Owners and house managers are more open to special offers during the summer season with many Barbados villas offering discounts like 14 nights for the price of 12 or 7 nights for the price of 6.
5. Cheaper flights
Some airlines might put the prices up during the school holidays but generally you can get flights at a much cheaper rate than you can during peak periods.
Does the weather make it a damp squib?
The simple answer is no. There is more rainfall but generally these are short sharp showers which normally occur early in the morning when you are still sleeping. The Caribbean does have a hurricane season running from September until November but Barbados sits on the south of the Caribbean and on average is only hit every 25 years. Now they are good odds! The most notable difference is the rise in humidity at this time of year but with your own pool and with the beach at your doorstep, there are plenty of ways to cool off.
So if you were being put off by staying during the Summer Season, don't be. It is a lovely time to visit beautiful Barbados.
