The tropical island of Barbados is home to miles of golden sand, crystal clear waters and the friendliest locals, so it’s no wonder that this jewel of the Caribbean is popular with honeymooners looking for an exotic escape.
Many couples who choose to spend their honeymoon in Barbados want to divide their time between relaxing by the beach, drinking free-flowing rum and exploring the island. The capital, Bridgetown, is the perfect place to experience a quirkier side to Barbados. With its traditional Caribbean heritage combined with influences leftover from British rule, this city is a great place to stroll around with your love.

Weather-wise, the best time to honeymoon in Barbados is January through to April, as this is when the island is driest and less humid. Hurricane season is from June to November - but the island’s southeastern position means it’s usually away from the main hurricane belt, and normally escapes direct hits.
Due to its close proximity to the equator, Barbados enjoys warm to hot temperatures throughout the year. Average temperatures range from around 25°C - 27°C, with highs sometimes reaching 30°C.
