Seaweed??
      #1733378 - 05/20/17 11:18 PM (208.199.25.138)

Do you think the seaweed will be gone by mid July? What beaches are affected?
Thanks

Did you read the seaweed on Orient thread? Various beaches were discussed there. As to whether it will be gone by mid July, who knows? The beach that seems to have the most trouble with seaweed has been Dawn Beach.

If you go to sxm-talk.com and search seaweed, there are articles from April and May discussing this . I wouldn't worry about this though. Its usually here one day and gone the next.

Seaweed was terrible at Mr. Busby's this morning. A wall of seaweed along the beach with a backhoe trying gather it up. Smell was terrible at breakfast.

This is written in respect to St. Croix - but applies to all Caribbean islands: http://www.gotostcroix.com/st-croix-blog/sargassum-seaweed-friend-foe/

The short story - you don't know until you get there.

"I wouldn't worry about this though. Its usually here one day and gone the next."
Long range forecast is an unusual amount of seaweed is expected throughout the Caribbean through out the next months. They are doing a good job of clearing it away on the beaches affected but it comes in daily.
