Barbados is situated at latitude 13° 10′ N and longitude 59° 32′ W and is the most Easterly Island in the Lesser Antilles. This means Barbados falls into the Atlantic Standard Time (AST) zone.

Barbados is only 21 miles long and 14 miles wide and does not have different time zones like bigger countries. The Island does not observe Daylight Saving Time (DST) so the time differences will vary in the summer and winter for those countries that do observe DST.

Here are some time differences based on The World Clock. Please note that these times will differ as different countries observe DST during different periods during the year, so you should usually use the world clock to be more accurate.
