Is there a reliable way to predict which beaches will be calm?

Jump to last reply

I grew up in San Diego. Each morning I listened to the surf report. Based on the swell, wind conditions, and current - I could always tell where the biggest waves were going to be and went there. Conversely, I could have also told any tourist where the calmest beaches would be.

Now I'm a tourist and would rather visit a beach that's calm.

I'm going to St. Maarten and St. Thomas in March. I'm wondering, is there a prevailing current, normal wind direction, or other factor that would make certain beaches reliably calm on those islands? If not, is there a local report that would help me pick the calmest beaches to visit?

I'm thinking of catching a taxi to the beach of my choice, any thoughts on whether this is a good option?

Thanks,
