St Maarten beaches are some of the best in the world
Same Island, Same Sand – Two Countries.
We think the St Maarten beaches are actually difficult to categorize because so many of them have multiple things to offer and cross over into eachothers’ territory.
Since St Maarten St Martin is an island between the Atlantic ocean and the Caribbean sea, we are enjoying calm beaches and wavy ones as well. You might find one beach has mainly calm waters which is perfect for taking babies and toddlers for their first dip in the ocean (Le Galion Beach St Martin), However, the same beach, may have further down the shore a surfing, kite-surfing and windsurfing school where they go further out closer to the far side of the protective reef for the bigger winds and waves – it all depends on the lay of the land and which direction it faces and if there’s a windward reef or not.
very popular beach for tourist and locals – located on the french side – St Martin is Orient Beach. With large verity of restaurants,bars & water sports activities no wonder it most wanted.
Let’s not forget our world famous beach for plane spotting – Sunset Beach Bar located at the beginning of St Maarten Airport runway. Plane spotting is definitely should be on your list of one of the things to do in St Maarten.
Don’t worry we’ve been to all of the St Maarten – St Martin beaches and will make the selection process easier for you – especially if you are coming here on a cruise and only have limited time to get to and from the beach before your ship sails…
We will also tell you about the beaches that can’t be categorized – the ‘secret’ ones, the ‘hidden’ ones and the hard to get to.
There are some really breathtaking beaches here that are not signposted, have no beach bars, umbrellas or hawkers and you can literally find yourself the only person there for the whole day! (ok – please don’t tell EVERYONE about them – we need to keep it a little bit secret for a little while longer).
