May 9th Sargassum Update

Hello everyone, and happy Tuesday! I just realized that it’s been more than a week since I posted a sargassum update. So here we go. 🙂

Good news! The sargassum that we saw on the more popular beaches – Honeymoon, Trunk Bay, and Cinnamon, for example – is gone. We still have some sargassum in the area, but it is no longer affecting the popular North Shore beaches. There is a bit dried up on some, but it is not affecting anyone’s beach days.

Over the past few days, I have seen sargassum in Chocolate Hole, Hart Bay, Borck Creek (which is part of Hurricane Hole), and over at Drunk Bay (which is near Salt Pond Bay). I have seen some on Ms. Vie’s beach on the East End too. There wasn’t much on either Hansen or Saltwell Bottom out there. I have been everywhere except Salt Pond and Lameshur, so I apologize that I cannot report on those bays.

I know that sargassum is being talked about in the media quite often, but please know, it really isn’t affecting us here. So go ahead and book those flights! The island is quiet. Come visit us!

I will continue to provide updates, as needed, at So please check that page often. Thank you for reading Explore STJ! Tell your friends about us. 🙂
