Some call the climate in the Lesser Antilles the best in the world: never too hot in summer thanks to the constantly blowing trade-winds, and never freezing cold in winter. The Caribbean Sea always maintains a temperature comfortable for swimming. During the winter months, the wind can blow stronger and yes, overcast and even rainy days are possible. But how could the island's lush vegetation be maintained if there is no rainfall? The good news is that squalls usually blow over in a few minutes and it is a rare day indeed where the weather is completely rotten.
