Barbados is a very safe island for tourists with crime rates being the lowest in the Caribbean region; however you still need to exercise the same caution as you would at home by not leaving valuables on display and not walking around unlit roads at night.
The Island is blessed with a wonderful combination of weather attributes, bright sunshine and cooling breezes virtually all year round. The moderately high daytime temperatures are balanced by refreshing, cooler nights thanks to the trade winds coming in off the Atlantic.
The rainy season in Barbados is from June to November. The good news is that Barbados usually escapes the wrath of the severe tropical storms and hurricanes which come through the Eastern Caribbean. Rather, due to the island's unique easterly location, major weather systems tend to move above or below Barbados. The water in Barbados is safe to drink as it is filtered naturally through the coral limestone rock.
Swimming in Barbados is safe on the west and south coasts as it surrounded by the Caribbean Sea, but you need to exercise caution as you venture up the south east to east and north coasts, as this side is the Atlantic Ocean which is much rougher. Water sports such as Kite boarding, wind surfing and surfing are popular in Barbados as the waves on the south coast are excellent for wind and kite surfing.
