My first visit here was in October of 2010. Surf was extremely rough and not swimmable. Came back to see what it was like to find the surf calmer (still a little rough for small children) but a lot of the sand was gone, exposing many large rocks. The water is still crystal clear and sand soft. Food to purchase... More

I did not stay at this beach for very long, but from what I saw it had nice sand and a few waves. This maybe one of the more difficult beaches to find on the island and will require you to pay attention to signs on the side of the road.

My husband and I have been to this beach before and absolutely loved it. Low key beach for couples. There is a rumor that this is a beach for gays. We did not see anything of the sort. Some Beach goers were nude but went far away from the main entrance.

The good - beautiful, gorgeous beach. The bad - To begin with we were met at the parking lot wanting us to rent "cushioned" chairs and an umbrella for $25. We looked down the beach and it looked relatively calm so we paid the $25 for the "cushioned" chairs. We sat down and no matter how we moved around, they... More

When we visited they were fixing the road going to the parking lot so it was a little interesting getting access but worth it. In the parking lot there are guys who will let you know where to park so you can get out when you want to leave. We rented chairs for $20 which is a little steep. There... More

At the time we went it was hard to find the entrance to the beach due to construction. Once we found the beach at around 11:00am we were badgered to buy chairs. We did not buy chairs and decided to check the red sand out. It has a very light red color and does not show up in pictures. One... More

The rock formations make it one of the more picturesque beaches on Saint Martin IMHO. When I visited, the water was very calm and the beach was well protected from the gusty winds we were having that day. There is a nice little restaurant onsite and chairs for rent. The parking lot is small, but everyone seemed to be parking... More

This is a very nice beach. I went on March and nobody was there. Very calm with beautiful turquoise water. Perfect for swimming. The parking lot is not very big then I guess in high season you must go early.

Getting to Red Bay early enough to find close parking is recommended. Walk down a short set of stairs, past the guys working to rent you a beach chair and/or umbrella, past the small BBQ place...and you'll find the lovely Baie Rouge. The water is gorgeous and the sands are wonderful. We found Red Bay's sand to be very soft... More

this beach is lovely. water can be very rough when the wind blows and then not good for children or non-swimmers, the local food vendors have excellent drinks and food, but the food can be pricy
