Sargassum Seaweed on Simpson Bay Beach Today
      #1738306 - 07/11/17 09:24 PM (190.102.24.157)

Never saw so much Sargassum Seaweed on SBB.

Wow!! Isn't that BSV on that beach to the right? Carol's photos certainly didn't show anything like that! I guess she and Eric left just in time!

Wow, that certainly does not look very nice.I have never seen it that bad on that beach. It looks like beaches that have not been affected in other years have lots of it this time.

That looks to be directly in front of El Zafiro. I hope it clears up. It became a favorite of ours last trip.

Beachside is immediately to the right, yes. There was no seaweed when we were there and we just left June 26. It sort of looks to be confined almost to in front of El Zafiro.

Benni--boy that looks bad. It almost looks clear in front of Beachside, or is that the angle?

The seaweed is very thick and covers most of El Zafiro beach front. The area seems today to be confined to this end of SBB but BSV HAS LESS seaweed and it is being raked up as I write this report.iI wouldn't go swimming in the area today. It doesn't smell but is disgusting and hopefully the sea will pull it back out soon.

OK, thanks for the updated picture. As you say, hopefully the ocean will carry it back out, as if it's hanging in the water like that, you can't really remove it and do any good.

So very sad to see this but appreciate the post.

A few years ago, we were arriving on our typical flight and well prior to landing but still in the immediate area of Anguilla and St Martin, we witnessed this through the clouds. You couldn't really tell what it was from so high up but as we came closer we thought at first it was some kind of a major fuel spill on the water, having never really seen or heard of the Sargasso phenom in regard to SXM. As we came very close we could see it was like a thick blanket of hay strewn across the water and in evidence everywhere we looked as we drew closer.

That trip we stayed a couple of weeks at the Towers and had no negative effects from the seaweed at Mullet Beach, but when we moved over for our final few days at Beachside Villas on Simpson Bay we were amazed at the length and depth of the seaweed in that area. No negatives towards BSV since this is Mother Nature at work. And to their absolute credit, they raked and bagged it every morning but you really couldn't enjoy the water at all along much of Simpson Bay - so disappointing - and we found ourselves still heading out to Mullet and Friars for our beach time. On this same trip we did an all day around the island sail and we were amazed at how much of the island was encompassed by this seaweed, and at the same time, some areas were totally devoid of it.

So very sad to see this again and so sorry for Nicole and her people at ElZafiro and for her guests, too. It really does look like a total mess there.

Do you have a picture of that area today? I am hoping that the winds and tide shift so that part of SBB is usable.

Thanks

Our kids just returned from Punta Cana and the entire beach where they stayed was unusable for the week they were there. They asked in advance and checked Trip Advisor and all the reports said there was no seaweed. It doesn't matter how often or who you ask. It is what it is depending on currents etc. We stayed on Orient in May and had 2 days where a "section" of the beach was unusable. At least we didn't lose the entire week. I think this is going to continue for some time.

Picture taken this morning of SBB. Unfortunately the Sargassum Seaweed is still here but somewhat less than yesterday.

SBR is on the opposite side of Simpson Bay from where the seaweed is now; you probably won't have a problem there.

Today the seaweed is about 1/3 that it was yesterday. I think in a few days it will be history on SBB. Elzafiro beach is now 70% clear of seaweed as it is confined to the area by the steps at the far end of the beach.

Almost all the Sargassum Seaweed is gone on SBB today. Just a small patch on the far right side of the beach near the steps to Beacon Hill. El Zafiro has cleaned up most of the seaweed in their beach and BSV is all cleaned up too.

The chairs under the Palm trees on the left side of the picture is where we were sitting. We swam all day yesterday. Not much seaweed in the water either. Glad to hear it's gone now. The wind has been out of the east since we have been here and seems to be keeping it away.

We just spent 5 wonderful days at Mary's Boon, just left on Friday. A little each day but they raked it up most days so we were fine. I think Simpson Bay is one of the best and most dependable beaches. A lot of seaweed at the other end of the beach, it seems to gather at that end as the photo shows. I am sure in a little time it will get better.

We went to Dawn Beach because Grace and her Sister wanted Conch Salad. The seaweed there is beyond belief. 2 Payloaders moving it. There is a mountain of it between Busbys and The Westin.

I will see if I can post some pictures.

Nothing at Friars at all. Very little around El Zafiro and BSV area of SBB.

We've been here since Sunday and not a trace around Happy Bay...until this morning. I'm seeing a lot of streaks rolling by this morning

We are two weeks out from 10 glorious days/nights at Club ) (our first stay there) and 4 nights at another location yet decided. I'm looking at the Club O webcam with some sadness and hoping it will pass soon. I'm also hoping Happy Bay stays clear as this is actually our favorite beach. Atleast there are many beaches to choose from and this trip we may be seeing parts of the island we haven't previously, just to stay away from this nasty weed. Our first trip to SXM, we also saw massive swaths of the stuff from the air and thought it was an oil spill. I wonder how long these patterns last.

For the first time since we got here last Friday, the wind has shifted to out of the south. It has been out of the east and keeping it away from Simpson Bay. South should do the same. What happens in other locations I am not sure.
