August is lovely in Barbados (any time is for that matter!)

There might be a few showers or there might not, the sea will be lovely and warm, just go and enjoy.

August is often the hottest month in Barbados there can be rain as it is the hurricane season but it is rare for rain to last more than a day in Barbados.

I've been in August, it rained at night on two occasions. It probably rains somewhere on the island every day of the year...you will be fine..enjoy it.

Peter I've spent two out of the last 3 years in Barbados in August, it does rain from time to time, we lost two full days to rain on both trips so 4 in total, having said that I got a much better tan during my August holidays than I did during my recent June trip.

Rain in August?

There is a smal percentage risk of rain ( very seldom do you have rain covering the whole Island )

you can move 10 minutes or less in diferent direction and see no rain. There is moere chance of rain out of rany season like early in the new year.

If you are here for two weeks you should be fine. The weather all over teh world is srewed so here shoiuld be ok.

look at the weather statistics over the last 7 or 8 years at that time and make a call.

I am always on the Island in August and it's one of my favourite months of the year because the sea is usually at it's calmest and at it's warmest ( and I mean really warm ) The weather is pretty constant throughout the year temperature wise, and unlike many places in Europe which reach unbearable temperatures, it rarely goes over 30 degrees in Barbados . We do get rain on occasion but overall, August is just the most beautiful month for a fabulous beach holiday. Do not hesitate -------------book.
