The sand here is larger granules and very soft. It doesn't stick to you like most other "white" sand beaches. The snorkeling is great and there is a swim through to the far right side. Worth it...you find your own deserted piece of beach. This is my favorite beach. There is food and a bar but the chairs do cost... More

We love this beach, difficult to find the first time but worth the time to find it. Very serene and not fussy. You can truly relax and enjoy yourself.

I found this place was mention on Trip Advisor as unvisited and decided to try it - it was excellent - nice clean beach located on french side 5 minutes from Marigot without ton of people seating on the head of each other. Water very clean, there are some waves but not crazy. You can snorkel there as well. You... More

We visited about 10 beaches over the course of two visits and they were all beautiful and fun. This one, however, is a must visit! Not too crowded, soft sand, blue water, great waves and a reef to explore. It's not too big but it is like a little paradise. Go there!

The French beaches are far superior - but this is the best one. There is plenty of room and - for photographers - this is one of the best (top 5) on the island for getting great photographs.

Beautiful hidden beach at the French dide of SXM. Amazing scenery with clear shallow waters. Unique rocky shore gives a beautiful accent to this spot. Mandatory chair and umbrella for sun protection. Great advantage having the friends from Chez Raymond walking all over the place getting drink and food orders.

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
