“Sea Turtle Snorkeling Adventure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Great beaches, and snorkeling to see the sea turtles. A must for all snorkeling lovers. Clear waters. But beware if you have small children, for there is some nudists on this beach

“Nice Turtle Spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Nice place to see turtles grazing on the sea grass. Not much relief on the northwest side when snorkeling.

“Highlight of Our Trip To St. Maarten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

Find a snorkeling tour and come here! It is so beautiful both on and off the beach. The sand is soft and pink, the water is sparkling clear blue, just amazing! No bathroom or restaurant facilities here. Also, know that you are likely to run into some nudists here, but they keep to themselves and don't bother anyone.

“Turtle watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

It was great to see the beach and also to see the none anchor points that made the island an attractive area. There were quite a few turtles in this area.

“Fun. Lots of turtles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

Was a fun day for the whole family. We saw 5/6 turtles while snorkeling. Went back on a dive the island and heard whales singing. The little tugboat wreck was also nice.
