St Maarten / St Martin: Beautiful Beaches For Everyone

St Maarten / St Martin is famed for its crown jewels; close to 40 pristine beautiful beaches spread on all sides of the island. For those seeking the feel of a seaside resort with all its amenities, Philipsburg’s Great Bay Beach and Little Bay Beach, St Maarten’s famed Maho / Airport BeachSimpson Bay’s Kim Sha Beach and name sake Simpson Bay Beach are recommended. When in Pelican, Pelican key can be found right next door! Last but not least, St Maarten / St Martin’s world famous Maho also offers a lively variety of amenities surrounding what is probably the world’s most photographed sand. French side’s Grand Case Beach and Orient Bay Beach offer the atmosphere of the French Riviera, the latter with a clothing optional or nude beach part.

Your Own Private Beach

For those after tranquility and serenity, try hidden Indigo Bay Beach, Dawn BeachOyster Bay Beach, or the stretched and beautiful Lowlands beaches of Baie Longue / Long Bay, Plum bay / Baie aux Prunes, Baie Rouge / Red Bay. Dutch side Sint Maarten’s well known Mullet Bay Beach along its golf course also allows for a silent day in the sun. Guana Bay Beach gallantly stretches along a mile of Atlantic coast line, currents can be forceful here. Looking for a beach wholly of your own? Try our smaller beaches like Happy Bay , Cow or Lovers beach

Beaches For Kids

The shallow waters of Le Galion and Friar’s Bay are known to be kids friendly. The same accounts for that of Pinel Island’s beach on its bay. Kids will enjoy the 5 minute boat ride from French Cul de Sac, leaving every 30 minutes. If the uninhabited island of Pinel (though it boasts two restaurants and amenities) is not Robinson Crusoe enough for you, we recommend the larger island of Tintamarre.
