St Martin – Le Galion Beach

St Martin – Le Galion Beach

Versatile & Unspoiled – Le Galion Beach Has Everything.

St Martin Le Galion Beach

 

Le Galion beach has just about all the features you could expect from many beaches rolled into one – it’s calm at one end, but it’s rough enough to surf further out.

It’s breezy in places, calm in others,

There are watersports available, but you won’t hear the loud buzz of jet-skis because they are banned from this natural reserve.

it is unspoiled and uncommercialised, but you can get beach chairs & umbrellas and some great food ‘Chez Pat’ (Tropical Wave beach bar – the only one on the mile long stretch).

It’s perfect for teaching young children to swim at the north end because there are literally NO waves and it is very shallow  – you can walk out quite a distance.

You can snorkel, wind-surf, paddle, kayak, surf, kite-surf or just float in the calm blue waters undisturbed……

Your host Pat & Tracy have kept this beach clean, rustic, simple and uncluttered for 30 years – to many, especially us locals, this is what a Caribbean beach is all about.

St Maarten St Maritn Airport, known as Princess Juliana International Airport, considered to be one of our main attraction in St Maarten. Although St. Maarten is a little island, with daily flights from the leading airlines in US, Europe, South America and neighbor islands no wonder that the airport of St Maarten St Marin is one of the busiest in the region. If you are planning a trip over and you are looking into booking flight to St Maarten then St Maarten St Martin  airport code is simply SXM.

 

St Marten airport located in one of the beautiful St Maarten beaches. The runway is actually located right on the edge of Maho Beach and every landing and Taking off is a breath taking experience. One of the world famous bars – Sunset Beach Bar – located right on the beginning of the runway is by far, one of the main attraction of our island. St Maarten Airport is probably the only place in the world where you can almost touch the planes while landing…especially after few drinks…

 

so…buckle up, sit back, relax and enjoy the flight…

Things to do for kids in St. Maarten

Young fun

St Maarten is more than a playground for the big kids. There’s plenty to do for the little ones, too!

Best Beaches

st maarten le galion beachRolling surf, swaying coconut trees and endless stretches of sun-drenched sand take on a very different perspective when kids are involved.

  • Is there an undertow?
  • Are there sea urchins?
  • Will those coconuts fall?
  • Is there somewhere shady?

Luckily, St Maarten/St Martin has some of the safest, child-friendly beaches possible, most notably at Le Galion, Continue reading

Finding A Deserted Beach

It’s Not Too Hard When You Know How..

Guana BayWe’ve assembled a list of the best beaches for peace and tranquility – the kind of beach where you don’t want:

  • The sound of jet-skis and motor boats
  • The screaming and crying of children
  • The harassment of souvenir hawkers
  • The roar of a jet-plane overhead
  • The doubt about your safety – is it too isolated?

There are many beaches in St. Maarten where you can have the best of both worlds – where at one end you can have fun and watersports and at the other be quiet and calm….. Continue reading

Riding The St. Maarten Waves

Riding High On The Waves

Catching that perfect wave is not just a pro thing..

On the Northern and North-East facing beaches in St. Maarten you can find the best surfing conditions. The rips are mild and the rollers are long – but you may have to contend with reef as well as the other wave-dancers – kite-surfers!

st martin surfing beach wavesBy far the best ‘locals’ place to surf (when the weather is mild) is Wilderness Beach in St. Martin – this is on the far north end of the island and is not easy to find. You have to drive as far as you can through french cul-de-sac, leave your car at the municipal garbage dump, and walk over lose washed-up coral and rough headland about 20 minutes to the edge of the point.

Luckily, many surfers before you have made it a cosy spot with a makeshift shelter complete with table and seating out of driftwood, for you to sit back and enjoy a beer after your days surfing…… Continue reading
