The area is beautiful. Restaurants with water views. However, it is quiet and away from a lot of the attractions on the French and Dutch side. About 30-45 minutes from Simpson Bay and Majo. Definitely recommend renting a car.

quiet, private, friendly, beautiful resort with professional staff and several restaurants to choose from just off property as well as two on property. A rental car is a must.

Spent a week at the Oyster Bay Resort on Oyster Pond. The view from our condo was fantastic. With Dawn Beach close by and wide selection of restaurants to choose from, you can't help but have a great time!

My wife and I stayed at Oyster Bay Beach Resort and loved Dawn Beach. We relaxed in the lounge chairs and went in the Atlantic Ocean often.

While it may be further away from the main attractions-- this area of the island is nice and safe with beautiful homes and delicious restaurants. Our vacations were the Dinghy Dock Bar and Mr. B's.

Daniels by the Sea, a great place for our 24th wedding anniversary. Special attention from the waite staff and romantic dining right on the water's edge. Many great restaurants to choose from in the area. Love casinos?

This was my favorite beach on the island right on Oyster Pond. The staff on the beach will take your drink orders and bring them right to you. It is not overcrowded and very beautiful. I love this beach!!!!

I feel guilty praising oyster pond that much.....we have gone twice in april and we find it quiet, charming and unassuming. We have stayed in a private villa each year and found it to be safe, convenient and fun! The first year we cooked quite a bit, but this year we ate out a lot more. Our favorite Oyster Pond... More
