The climate of Saint Barthélemy
Saint-Barthélemy lies in the Caribbian Sea and is an overseas
community belonging to France. Centuries ago Saint Barthélemy was
Swedish possession for a long time, with which it has been the only
Swedish colony in the Caribbeans ever. That is why you can still find
the three crowns in the civic-crest of Saint-Barthélemy, which are the
symbol of the Swedish army. The tiny St. Barths (only 21 square
kilometers) is a popular holyday destination among the rich and
famous. This is mainly because mass tourism does not stand a chance
here, for larger aeroplanes than the small ones suitable for maximum
twenty persons simply can not land on or take off from the very short
runway of airport Gustav III. Therefore the tourists spotted on St.
Barths are mainly American popstars, actors, actresses, models and
other well-to-do people from the United States who stay in very
luxurious hotels and sometimes extremely expensive private villas.
Saint-Barthélemy has a tropical monsoon climate with a drier season
from December up to and including April and a wetter season from
august up to and including november. The total annual amount of
precipitation is approximately a thousand millimeters. Most rain falls
in the shape of showers which mostly do not last longer than 10 to 15
minutes. With average temperatures of 29 to 32 degrees it is
tropically warm throughout the year.
