Year round media productions on Southern Caribbean Islands

Why Barbados is a safe location for film and photo productions throughout the year

The Caribbean official hurricane season is from 1st of June to end of November. However the Caribbean islands stretch over 2.754,000 sq. km (1,063,000 sq. miles) and the weather is not the same in the South as in the North. Barbados for instance in the South and further out in the Atlantic is safe and has not been hit by a hurricane over 50 years. Northern Islands like Antigua, St. Martin, US Virgin Islands, BVI and also the Bahamas etc. are not so lucky.

They are in the hurricane belt and severe storms here are frequent. The tropical storms start in West Africa and they grow in intensity as the air warms up the further they move into the Northern Caribbean region. That is why Barbados has the geographical advantage and film productions and photo shoots can take place all year round. Image shows commercial shoot for Tombras Agency /USA in June with fabulous weather.
