Located on the island's east coast, there is no official beach on Oyster Pond.  If you're willing to drive just a few minutes out of town you'll encounter some of the best stretches of sand on the island, like the picturesque and largely uncrowded Dawn Beach or Gibbs Bay.

Which Beaches Are Available?

You will find several beaches to enjoy in and around the area. Snorkeling is an option at several locations, if some members of your party enjoy this relaxing pastime. Simply click on specific names for more detail concerning that section of the coast.

Dawn Beach

Baie Lucas Beach: Baie Lucas is located off Rue de Coralita, just north of the St. Martin-Sint Maarten border at Oyster Pond. Stick to the coastal road and it will be hard to miss.

A second location worth considering is Red Pond Bay. The beach is primarily composed of rough sand, with large rocks dotting the area. The beach will likely be uninhabited, as the area is home to mainly private homes.

Gibbs Bay: The beach is primarily accessible by vehicle, unless guests are staying at a local home. Drivers should take Wavy Clam Road, turning right onto March Clam Road.

The chart right below provides you with a few details concerning the beaches found in and around the area.
