“There are prettier beaches, but this one has a lot to offer”
Reviewed 18 November 2011

This beach is located in a bustling area on Simpson Bay. There are a lot of water sports and activities offered from here, but this is certainly not the nicest beach on St. Maarten. There are several beach bars a restaurants located on this beach, definitely worth checking out.

“Very nice beach-beautiful calm water”
Reviewed 10 September 2011

This beach has improved so much over the last few years. The sand was beautiful, and water was crystal clear. Highly recommended!!

“Nice, buuuuuuuuuut.....................”
Reviewed 26 February 2008

This was a pretty beach but it's not very big. We went on a Catamaran excursion there on 2/21/08. The one thing they DONT tell you is there is a very good possibility of seeing topless bathers, which I really didn't appreciate. It took me by surprise and I wouldn't have gone there if I would have know this.
