St Maarten weather forecast

Let’s talk about the weather on St Maarten. Well, if it isn’t a hurricane approaching, you will have not much for a small talk. Basically the weather doesn’t really chance over the year, as you can see in this St Maarten weather table (link).

The hottest month is august with temperatures between 78°F and 87°F opposing to the coldest month february with 72°F to 82°F. Now that’s quite a heap eh? But don’t underestimate that numbers, it can get quite chilly in the early morning. Being an island, the weather on St Maarten is very comfortable. The wind from the sea makes the temperature more likeable.

Autumn is the rain season in the caribbean, so if you plan your trip, avoid these months.

However, the caribbean is an all year destination. The main season is about from mid-December to mid-April, which is of course the driest time of year on the island and the most miserable time of year in the U.S. and in Canada.

In the off season you can get good deals for a hotel room and the beaches are far more less crowded. But be warned. Some restaurants close, hotels offer fewer facilities and may even use the off season for construction.
