Covered with Golden sands, and colorful waters, the beach is the perfect spot for snorkeling or surfing. There’s also Red Bay beach, which is named for its colorful sand, and features small restaurants, a lively atmosphere and is an ideal destination if you enjoy swimming. If you’re more into a lively atmosphere, you could visit Nettle Bay, which is one of the more crowded beaches, it’s surrounded by numerous resort hotels, but because of the large rocks, it’s not recommended for swimming. On the Lagoon side of the beach, it’s shaded by beautiful palm trees and is right around the corner from Simpson Bay Lagoon. Or Orient Bay continued to be a popular beach destination, considered being the Saint Tropez of the Caribbean, it’s surrounded by numerous hotels and shops. My personal favorite has to be Grand-Case Beach which has some of the clearest blue waters, and is surrounded by some of the island’s most celebrated restaurants and eateries.

Pinel Island

This piece of paradise is just east of Saint Martin and located at the heart of the Island’s Nature Reserve. This beach can be easily accessed by taking a 10-minute pontoon ride.
