Beautiful Wavy Beach

Bright turquoise and deep shades of blue characterize this beach where you are constantly amazed by the view of landing planes and celebrities.

St. Jean's Beach is a scenic wonder. We saw this in the 1980's and just made it back in February 2015. Still a beauty. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said regarding the main island town of Guastavia . Tacky shops are the rule and the nice ones have high prices! We have a couple of photos of the beach!

I love watching the planes take off and land. I love to do this on SXM and I enjoyed it here. There is some shade, but limited. We rented 2 lounge chairs and an umbrella for the day nearest to the entrance because it was the least expensive. You must enter along a path that is along the airport fence,... More

On the other side of the beach is Nikki Beach which is much more lively ith patrons of the restaurant/day club... More

Wonderful beach! It was quite busy the day we visited, but it was worth spending some time there. Close location to restaurants and shops. Renting a scooter is a great and easy way to make it around the island!

Pristine sandy beach, no seaweed. Slopes away quickly to allow you to swim. Enjoyable for local families as well as tourists
