You'll have to fetch the 10Euro (round trip) boat across to Pinel Island to come here. Walking around the island offers some interesting views and you'll have two dinning options here including the Yellow Beach Bar. I would suggest going earlier in the day/morning to avoid the crowds. We came here on Nov. 27th after having spent the morning snorkelling... More

We really enjoyed the bar! We arrived about 10 minutes before closing, but they stayed open for us, after all the crowds had left. What a wonderful place to sip cocktails and enjoy your friends!

The location is fabulous. The pizza was outstanding since I did not expect this. The service was great with an excellent bar. The snorkeling was also great however you had to swim a little ways to the reef.

I went to Yellow beach bar this past week and had grilled lobster and OMG, it was to die for. Generally speaking I'm not a lobster fan, but I could not get enough of this food. You get to pick your very own live lobster fresh out the pot and it is served with your choice of sides and picked... More

We were staying in Cul-de-Sac on St. Maarten and kayaked to Pinel Island for the day. Yellow Beach was one of two restaurants on Pinel Island and the food and service were both exceptional! Steve setup a table in the water for our food and drinks! The first day we did tapas (lobster special on bread, jalapeno poppers and cod... More

This restaurant is those places where you eat with your feet on the sand. Very cozy place that serves excellent food quality on the Pinel Island, in Saint Martin (the French sie of the country). It's a nice place to have lunch if you are spending the day in the title Pinel Island. It's possible to rent chairs and umbrellas... More

There are two beach clubs and we chose the Yellow Beach Club because 8t was recommended to us by someone who lives on Saint Martin. We remted two... More

Got home from Pinel today and was disappointed for the first time. After racking up a 300 bill, they sprang a fast one on us - "Sorry, the credit card machine hasn't worked all day - cash please!" ... Really? You couldn't have told us that during the course of the day? What if I didn't have that cash on... More

This is the only place to eat if you are spending the day on Pinel Island. The food is your standard fish and chips so the food was okay however the wait time for the food was much too long. We waited over 45 min just for some burgers. Not worth it in my opinion. Oliver was attentive and made... More

Spent the day at the beach. Oliver was fantastic taking care of us at the lounge chairs. We went to the huts for lunch. We waited almost 20 minutes to have our order taken. Food took a while to come out. The server was nice but seemed to be overwhelmed by the amount of tables she had at once.
