Surfing conditions updated here for the bay at Pt. Blanche.
Short board surfing is best for this small bay.
Post Irma Hurricane Report
Good surf at Point Blanche Bay but there is a trench near the shore making for big wavess there.
Landing is hard because of that aggitation. Plus the bigger rocks in the bay are all rearranged.
The big rock where pelicans would sit was split intwo by Irma.
Le Gallion (next to Orient Bay) is good for kite-board surfing and wind surfing and paddleboarding. Bring your own equipment. Short board surfing isn't so good because the wind on that point is too strong to paddle past.
Bring your own food/drinks. Lots of parking available and the road is in good condition.
Guana Bay is a better choice for surfing than Point Blanche. It has a rock-free bottom and nice sand on the beach.
Bring your own food/drinks. Lots of parking available and the road is in good condition. Guana Bay is also good for boogie boards and body surfing. Bring your own equipment.
Guana Bay - sad to report the Cantina has closed.
Recent update on the condition of the bottom of the bay:
-- no info right now.
The east side of the bay has sea urchins so watch your step.
So far no
lionfish have been spotted on this side of St. Maarten.
Any news about that will be reported here.
The first aid for their sting is to apply heat to the area (on your way to the emergency room).

We had a several this week. Fishing seems good for the birds.
