If you're looking for a beach that's quiet but not totally secluded, Cupecoy is a good choice. Its white sands are backed by low sandstone cliffs that have been eroded in such a way that they provide a run of small semiprivate coves.

This is more like a series of beaches and depending on the day it could look a bit different. You park at the top and walk your way down. There are plenty of stairs to get you down to each individual cove. Note this beach does allow nude sun bathing so on your exploring you may get a view. The... More

Blue Mall - brilliant shopping area, looked brand new. Few small bays with rocks to sit on, peaceful. Nice hotels.

Beautiful, clean beach, great for sunbathing, people watching, reading, going for a walk, and playing in crazy waves. Beach vendor was great - we only had half a day so he only charged $10 USD for chairs and umbrella.

This was a fun beach to visit. It's a little off the beaten path, but well-worth walking down to and enjoying the sights. You may see some naked people, but that's part of the charm, right? There's a guy with a stand set up, selling beers and food. Bring cash for this.

Beach is definitely one traveler to St. Maarten must visit. The sand was the smoothest of the beaches we visited, which made it great to just lay a towel down and relax (not need to pay for a lounge chair). The water is clear and beautifully blue, and the bars nearby have great services. It's a little out of the... More

Nice view of the ocean. Be aware, it is a clothing optional beach and most of the people were not wearing anything.

Had a hard time finding the beach. Took a taxi there and he showed us that you need to find an opening to walk down to the beach. It appeared that there isn't one big beach, but rather little sections/coves...with cliffs/rock formations. Interesting.

If you want to be alone and enjoy the warm weather or get the nice sun tan, go on this beach. It is not very crowded and there are rocks nearby where it is interesting to climb using your feets.

We didn't care for Cupecoy Beach. There are actually several small beach areas that grouped together are considered Cupecoy. Closer to the entrance - getting to the beach requires a very steep and challenging descent to the water down rickety steps. Instead - we went to the farthest north part of the access road and parked where we had just... More
