Temperatures average 29°C (84°F). The rainy season is June to November. Even in the driest months it rains a fair amount, though not every day. The second weekend in August is Carnival, the island’s biggest and busiest event, so reserve accommodation in advance if you want to enjoy the festivities. Winter is prime fishing season and, accordingly, the Spice Island Bill fish Tournament, which draws anglers from around North America and the Caribbean, is held annually in January.
