Storms are a possibility, but hurricanes are rare. During this time, music and parties galore, and prices will be half of what they are during the peak season.    

What to do and see

Oistins Fish Fry, a street fair event, offers an inexpensive way to taste the island cuisine, vibe with the local music, and sip on the Caribbean’s choice of alcohol. Garrison Savannah Horse Racing is unlike any horse racing events. Aside from the race, the sun, and the constant sipping of coconuts, there are stalls offering crafts and delectable treats. If the music, the party, and the food aren’t your style, there is always the Soup Bowl and Bottom Bay. This is the Caribbean. These beaches, aside from being just plain breathtaking with blue-green water and sandy shores, are filled with surfers riding one wave after another.
