Fodor's Review

Karakter, a funky and charming modern beach bar, is right behind the airport, serving up fun, great music, relaxation, and a lot of style. The vibe is more like St. Tropez than St. Maarten. Open from 9 am till 10 pm, the restaurant serves up healthy and tasty choices for any appetite: fresh fruit smoothies, tropical cocktails, fresh fruit salads, healthy sandwiches, and tapas. A sign near the shower/bathhouse invites guest to "come hang out here and shower before you go

to the airport". So this is a place to keep in mind in case your flight is delayed or if you have a layover between flights, or even if you just want to spend every last second of your vacation on the sand.
