Best Beaches in St Maarten
St Maarten has the best beaches
The island of 37 beaches, the 37sq mile/ 70km coastline of St. Martin is practically one entire stretch of tourist heaven. Each of St. Maarten’s beaches is unique reflecting the very rich diversity of the local culture. Ranked among the finest in the area, these beautiful beaches offer a range of activities and options from diving and snorkeling to watersports or simply relaxing in the tropical sun on warm clean sands.
Head to Orient Bay on the Atlantic side of the island for wind surfing, jet skis and for sunbathing along a fabulously long stretch of beach. Set in a calm, protected Bay, Kim Sha Beach is home to the popular Buccaneer Beach Bar and the new Roxxy Beach where watersports are also available. Maho Beach is where you can photograph the planes landing right overhead, with the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort right next door. A popular sunbathing beach is Mullet Bay – an idyllic place for a day of swimming and snorkeling.
