If you visit Saint Martin you should go to Baie Rouge, it is beautiful. Only a handful of people were there today and it was as picturesque as any Caribbean beach could ever be. We swam to 2 secluded beaches that were amazing.

Found this beach from trip advisor reviews. We rented a car from the cruise port and drove about 1/2 hour to the beach. Very quiet, gorgeous aqua water. We are from Florida and enjoyed the rocky sea side which is a contrast to what we usually see. I highly recommend this beach! There were people there selling lounge chairs and... More

Despite the initial ramshackle like feel to this beach, it is our favorite. The reason is the snorkeling. Enter the water at the far right of the beach, around the rocks. Fish are almost immediately visible: we saw some silver angel fish right away. If you go around the first bend, you will see a wonderful beach, and then an... More

Nice blue waterbut very rocky. Small parking lot with very pushy locals roaming around cars, felt unsafe.

This is by far the most beautiful beach I have been to. It is absolute zen! The waters are a little rough, it is very rocky but all well worth it!

My wife and I were looking for good places to snorkel and our hotel manager suggested this beach and was he right. If you go to the right down on the beach, you are welcomed by the rocks and fish almost immediately. Then as you go toward the arch there are many rock formations and coral and fish to explore....

Bai Rouge is a beautiful and secluded beach. The entry can be easily missed; when heading there from the Dutch side, it comes right after a formal sign that reads Bai Rouge private residence. Right after that sign you will find another entry, turn into this and park. As read in other reviews, we were greeted by Freedom, who rented... More

Found Baie Rouge (Red Bay) on our trek to find the west side beaches on the French side of the island. The Red Bay Beach entrance is located at the 90° turn in the road near Nettle Bay. There are walls emblazoned with Baie Rouge at the corner with several signs in French warning that you stay out! We went... More

We stayed in Margot and drove to Baie Rouge in about 15 minutes. The entrance is very easy to miss (located on a curve). There is free parking at the top of the beach and some beach bar and restaurant. We came at 8 am to snorkel and were alone. The waves around the cliff can get rough so bring... More
