St. Martin and St. Maarten Sights

Simpson Bay Beach

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

This secluded, half-moon stretch of white sand on the island's Caribbean side is a hidden gem. It's mostly surrounded by private residences, with no big resorts, no jet-skiers, and no crowds. It's just you, the sand, and the water (along with one funky beach bar to provide some nourishment). Southeast of the airport, follow the signs to Mary's Boon and the Horny Toad guesthouses. Amenities: food and drink; showers; toilets. Best for: solitude; swimming; walking.
