You will discover a large number of beaches to consider in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at several locations, if some of the people in your group enjoy the underwater scene. For more information concerning a single beach just click on the names of the ones you'd like to know more about.
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. Located on the eastern coast of the island and south of the popular resorts like the Westin and Oyster Bay Beach, Red Pond Bay features a quiet and private beach, used only by private house owners. The area isn't suited for swimming, due to the more aggressive waves, but does offer an opportunity for an incredible view of the Caribbean Sea.
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.
