When to Visit

Antigua and Barbuda’s tropical climate and beach reputation make it an all-year-round destination. However, the best time to visit depends on what you’re seeking from the holiday. The peak season from December to April has fewer rain showers and slightly cooler temperatures.

The off-peak months between May and November constitute the islands' rainy season. Though showers may be more prevalent, they're usually brief, and there’s plenty of sunshine in between. The bonus is that there are fewer tourists and more bargaining power with prices during this period. Do keep a watchful eye on the weather though as this period coincides with hurricane season.
