Daytime temperatures average between 24C (75F) and 30C (86F) throughout the year. Low temperatures of 21C (70F) Dec-March are about as cool as it gets. The warmest summer temperatures (usually August) sometimes reach 32C (90F).
Trade winds bring cooling breezes for most of the year and high season December to April can be counted on to have higher winds perfect for sailing. Easter Regatta in April is a great time to visit.
“Dry" season is from December/January to late April/early May and coincides with the “high" season for visitors. Days of clear sunny skies, good sailing breezes, low humidity and minimal rainfall are the norm. Occasionally, welcomed rain squalls blow through, most often in evening. The island is totally reliant on rain for its water, so the arrival of the “rainy" season in May/June is always a blessing.
The warmer, summer months of May to November are a welcome mixture of cooling showers, sunshine and light breezes, with the occasional heavy downpour. Our trees and flowers are typically more in bloom and beautiful at this time of year. The additional rains are not enough to ruin a holiday, just enough to cool it off!
Bequia is at the southern end of the hurricane belt, and although tropical storms will occasionally approach in the peak months of August to October, most disturbances pass to the north. Sometimes swells will reach Bequia from these storms causing temporary beach erosion.
