I’m holidaying in Barbados with my family at the end of February/early March 2023. We’re staying at Crane Beach in St Philip, a world-renowned stretch of white sands. In recent years sargassum seaweed has been a huge problem there, despite best efforts to clear it.
I read on https://www.nationnews.com/2023/01/03/seaweed-back-shores/ that mounds of seaweed started piling up earlier than normal, at the start of the new year.
I’ve been to Barbados before and seen Crane Beach at its best so I guess I can cope with the disappointment if it’s not as stunning as I remember it, but it’s a first (and probably one-time only) visit for the rest of my family, so I was really hoping the influx wouldn’t be too bad during our holiday.
Has anyone visited the Crane area of Barbados very recently? I understand that the volume of seaweed deposits comes and goes with the tides and weather so the extent of the problem is hard to predict, but in general is Feb/Mar likely to be a bad time?
