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.

Beach Choices In The Area

You'll discover several beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some locations, for visitors who are so inclined. You can click on specific names for more information concerning that particular stretch of sand.

Dawn Beach

Baie Lucas Beach: This beach is on St. Martin's eastern side. It has a wide stretch of sand covered in palm trees, which provide relief from the bright sunlight.

Another alternative 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: Located on the east coast of the island, Gibbs Bay features a small beach area, south of some of the island's popular resorts. Typically unpopulated, the beach's soft white sand and clear waters are perfect for a no-hassle beach trip.
