You've got to go to this beach. It's really clean. Few people. Soft sand. Beautiful water. To enter take the road to Terre Basse from the airport towards Marigot, following the coast, not through town. The entrance is through the gated community of Terre Basse. Don't worry the guard will let you in. Just tell him your going to Long... More

This beach is a beauty. It takes a little effort to get there but worth it. The water is gorgeous and the beach is fairly quiet. The water is magnificent like most of the beaches of St. Maarten. A pleasing way to spend an afternoon.

One of the most beautiful and quiet beaches on the island. We went for a short time. You have to go through a security point of a private neighborhood to get to the water. Sand was super soft. We enjoyed the visit.

Well we've always wanted to go to the Caribbean and we went on a cruise with the Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas!! First stop Saint Maartens!! Exactly like you'd have imagined these beaches to be like; white sand, clear turquoise seas and beautiful weather. This place is a definite, going back asap!!

We enjoyed a day away from the crowds..long beaches. Miles of walking and very private. Difficult to find but we'll worth it..

This is just what we expected of the Caribbean to be and if I had to show one picture to represent this part of the world it would be a picture of this area. One of the nicest places to visit on my list.

There are the north french beaches and the south Dutch beaches, both have their own appeal just as does the island which is oddly separated into two language, postal and identity zones. Not sure which this one comes under as the signs were in both French and Dutch. Be wary of swimming as there are plenty of jelly fish when... More

We stumbled onto this very hard to get to beach. It's not easy to get to but is worth it. The hotel has cabanas and water sports rentals. We visited twice as it was the family favorite.

We stopped here on a day stop over and it was definitely my favourite of all the islands we visited and would return on holiday. The beach is stunning and very clean, the people are so friendly and welcoming. We had a beer bucket for a couple £ and great for shopping. Very cheap to eat drink and shop..
