Happy Bay Beach is now my most favorite beach in the world. A local told us that it's the last non-touristy beach in St. Martin. We took a cruise (Celebrity Reflection) to St. Martin in February 2013. From the port, we took a cab to Friar's Bay Beach then hiked to Happy Bay Beach. The 25-minute ride was about $30 each way. The 10-minute hike is scenic and easy (my fiance did it in flip flops). I was so glad we walked; it was beautiful. Watch out for cow pies! Follow the trail and hug the coast until you get to a small private beach. Clothing is optional, so just be aware! We hiked back to Friar's Bay in the afternoon and asked the bartender to call us a cab back to port.
