More budget-conscious travellers could consider the mild 'wet season' from June to November, where rain showers are mostly brief. However, to witness the vibrant Bajan culture come alive, February, hosting the acclaimed Holetown Festival, or August with the lively Crop Over festival, are perfect months to visit.
