The most convenient option is Dawn Beach. Located on the east coast of the island, Dawn Beach is a long stretch of beautiful white sand bordering clear waters. Sharing the beach with the Westin St Maarten, the area is popular with tourists, though its length allows for some areas to be quieter than others.

If you're interested in a stretch of sand that attracts very few tourists, Red Pond Bay might be worth a visit. 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. It can be found only a small trip off.
