Where to find us?

The school is located on the beach in Scotts Head, surrounded by the fishermen’s beach huts and colourful boats. You can’t miss our blue beach hut!

Where to eat ? have a drink ?

You’ll find many restaurants, bars and snacks in the area, offering a large range of local, creole and international cuisine for all budgets.

Most of them are open 7/7 and others open randomly, so you’ll always find a good opportunity for a new taste!

Quand venir?

Il s’agit d’un climat tropical avec une tempĂ©rature de l’air d’environ 27 ° C toute l’annĂ©e. Vous pouvez profiter du soleil toute l’annĂ©e ici, bien qu’il y ait une saison «sèche» et «humide». Pendant la saison sèche la nuit, de janvier Ă  juin, les tempĂ©ratures peuvent ĂŞtre plus fraĂ®ches grâce Ă  une belle brise. Il est plus susceptible de pleuvoir de juin Ă  novembre avec un pic en aoĂ»t, septembre et novembre, avec de possibles tempĂŞtes ou ouragans. En raison du changement climatique mondial, les choses ne sont parfois pas si Ă©videntes.

La tempĂ©rature de l’eau dans la baie de Portsmouth est de 28-30 ° C. La visibilitĂ© est gĂ©nĂ©ralement de 30 mètres.
