Antigua and Barbuda FlagAntigua Weather - When is the Best Month to Visit?

By Scott Bateman

comments 1 Comment scrolldown


Antigua has plenty of beaches for sunning and swimming - 365 of them to be exact - but rain rather than sun is a big problem for part of the year.

This Caribbean island draws hundreds of thousands of tourists every year to its numerous hotels and resorts. But the number of visitors fluctuates sharply with the seasonal rainfall.

Antigua experiences only 1.5 inches of rain during the month of February and not much more during January, March and April, according to the World Weather Organization. In contrast, rain totals 5.5 inches in September and nearly as much in October and November.

Rain hits the highest point in the fall because of the Caribbean's annual hurricane season, which officially runs from the beginning of June to the end of November. But the worst of it is usually in September and October.

Antigua temperatures are not a factor for vacation plans. The average monthly high temperature ranges from 83 degrees in December, January and February to 87 degrees from June until October. Low temperatures average about 75 degrees.

The number of days per month that it rains ranges from eight days in February through April to 13 days in August, October, November and December.

Rainfall impacts the months when tourists visit. The most popular months to visit are March and April, while the least popular are September and October, according to the Caribbean Tourism Organization.

Warm temperatures and light rainfall make February through April along with June the least risky months to vacation in Antigua. The months with the highest possibility of rain are August through November along with May.
