When to go to Saint-Barthélemy? There are two seasons, even three tourist seasons. From mid-December to mid-April, it is the high season: prices are at their highest and tourists flock. From mid-April to mid-December, it is the off-peak period during which European holidaymakers ignore the destination a little as long as the weather is fine at home! The summer months (July and August) represent a particular period: the summer holidays allow Caribbean residents living in Martinique or Guadeloupe to discover the country, and it is a bit of an intermediate season. The prices of tourist services increase during this period and air tickets are quite expensive. In short, if you prefer to travel outside peak periods, the best time to travel to Saint-Barthélemy is in May and June when the climate is most pleasant (hot and dry). In July and August, the weather is very hot and wetter, but don't take too much into account the clichés that tell you that the so-called cyclonic period is terrible! It rains more often, certainly, but it's still very pleasant. However, avoid planning a sailboat cruise in September because it is true that this is the month when you are most likely to encounter a tropical storm, or even a cyclone! Moreover, most of the establishments (shops, hotels, restaurants, sports activities...) are closed in September on Saint-Martin and Saint-Barthélemy. When to go to Saint-Barthélemy? All year round, avoiding September and focusing on May and June.
