St. Martin and St. Maarten Sights

Le Galion

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 03/13/2015

Fodor's Review

A coral reef borders this quiet beach, part of the island's nature preserve. The water is calm, clear, and quite shallow, so it's paradise with young kids. It's a full-service place, with chair rentals, restaurants, and water-sports operators. Kite-boarders and windsurfers like the trade winds at the far end of the beach. On Sunday there are always groups picnicking and partying. To get here, follow signs to the Butterfly Farm and continue toward the water. Amenities: food and drink; parking; toilets; water sports. Best for: partiers; swimming; windsurfing.
