Karibuni means "welcome" in Swahili, and that is exactly how the owners want you to feel as you come upon this lounge and restaurant. What began as a small stand serving sandwiches and snacks to eat on the beach began to expand each year, and before they knew it, this spot had become one of the most popular restaurants on the beach in St. Martin.


Karibuni is a popular grill that happens to specialize in International cuisine. Most guests consider the level of formality and service here to be informal. This location serves food for both dinner and lunch, so consider giving it a try one day.


Karibuni is found in the northeastern section of Saint Martin, on the island of St. Martin and Sint Maarten; it's 1.3 miles to the north of Orient Bay.

Something else to try besides the food this neighborhood is Ilet Pinel, a nearby beach, where you might nod off after a good meal or a long day.
