St. Martin and St. Maarten Sights

Baie de Grand Case

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

Along this skinny stripe of a beach bordering the culinary capital of Grand Case, the old-style gingerbread architecture sometimes peeps out between the bustling restaurants. The sea is calm, and there are tons of fun lunch options from bistros to beachside barbecue stands (called lolos). Several of the restaurants rent chairs and umbrellas; some include their use for lunch patrons. In between there is a bit of shopping—for beach necessities but also for the same

kinds of handicrafts found in the Marigot market. Amenities: food and drink; toilets. Best for: swimming; walking.

Most Relaxing Beach on the Island

My all time favorite beach on St. Martin. So relaxing with the gently lapping tide and never crowded. Calmos Cafe is my favorite bohemian spot to spend the afternoon sipping a rum punch, enjoying some appetizers, and watching the world go by with my feet in the sand.
