Recommended Posts

I remember hearing a few years ago that Barbados had an unusual amount of sargassum.  I just saw this report to expect it this year

http://www.loopnewsbarbados.com/content/locals-warned-expect-sargassum-invasion-year#:~:text=Residents across Barbados should expect,is creating discomfort for residents.

 

Have you seen it yet and does it affect the Carlisle Bay area?  Not arriving til end of November but wondering what to expect.

 

FYI  You are wonderful resource for information of Barbados.  Would love to buy you a drink when we get there.

WHEN (not if) we get Sargassum inundations

Carlisle Bay generally does not get affected very much.


East Coast and South-East coast of the island take it on the chin

and it's horribly disruptive!

 

South-West Coast gets it a bit less, but still bloody-awful!

 

Carlisle Bay gets a little, as some of it manages to round Needhams Point

but a lot of it continues Westward

to other 'lucky' islands in the Antillean island chain *big smile*

You ask about November? LOL -Who knows whose nose?
We'll let you know a few days before you leave.
