What's Located Around Caravanserai Beach Resort

The sparkling beaches on the island of St. Martin and Sint Maarten are touted as some of the most relaxing (or active!) spots on the island. Luckily, this property is located directly on the water, so you won't need to go out of your way to enjoy what makes the region so popular. This location is not located near St. Martin's busier areas, which means guests of the property oftentimes find that the beach is fairly empty, giving them the opportunity to find a peaceful spot to soak in some sun.

If instead you're interested in a stretch of sand that attracts very few tourists, Mullet Bay may be just what you're looking for. Located on the western coast of the island, Mullet Bay Beach features a large strip of white sand, filled with palm trees and seagrapes. One of the best beaches on St. Maarten for swimming because of the excellent conditions of the crystalline waters, Mullet Bay is popular with tourists and locals alike.
