The beaches of Barbados offer incredible sailing opportunities. Hidden caves, white sand beaches, and turquoise water—Barbados has it all for perfect boating. And viewing the island from the water is always an unforgettable sight.

Barbados is an island of endless summer, as the air temperature here hardly changes throughout the year. But to not catch a storm at sea, choose calmer months from January to March. Besides, the island is the epicenter of many boat races and sailing competitions, typically running from December to July. Mount Gay Round Barbados Race traditionally opens this vibrant season.

The west coast of Barbados is especially famous for perfect sailing spots, such as Sandy Lane Bay or Reeds Bay. In the capital, you can find boating in Carlisle Bay. Lastly, if you opt for Port St. Charles, note that this place is also great for dining on excellent fish and staying overnight after a long day of sailing.

Lastly, explore the map of sailing in Barbados to find the best accommodations nearby. You can always take a break, moor in a town, and dine at local beach restaurants, go sightseeing, or explore the old plantations of Barbados.
