Oyster Pond is the divide between Dutch and French sides. We stayed at the beautiful Oyster Bay Beach Resort on the Dutch side. Our first room looked out over this marina, and we were wistful watching folks pull out and come in. It’s lovely and...More

Nothing to see here, a place with boats sunk and destroyed by hurricane, don't go unless you are in the hotels around there.

Oyster Pond has still not recovered from Hurricane Irma. The Oyster Bay resort is still not up to bar. Dawn Beach is closed and the only restaurants currently open are Oasis(great) and Infiniity(okay) Boats still lying sunk in the shallow water.

Absolutely enjoyed our time at this hotel. Not the place to go if you want the loud party scene as the demographics are mostly geriatric, which at 33 is pretty much my scene. Otherwise, stay in Simpson Bay for a younger, party scene. A bit...More

I think it may be under the wrong location. Many of the reviews for the Voyager ferry in Marigot state leaving from Oyster Pond for St Bart's. It's under transportation in Things to do.

Big Fish is great. But for great BB chicken there is a small hut across from it that you've got to try.
