“Laid back and casual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2015 NEW

We just love the oyster Pond area. It has a very nice beach, right on a harbor with all kind of boating activities available. There are numerous restaurants and bars. Try Dingy Docs bar and Canoa restaurant.

“Wow has this place changed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2015

We visited Oyster Pond in 1975 and again in 1992. The growth from a sleepy bay where a few yachts were moored to a jumping off place for a number of island yacht rental places and a number of restaurants has not changed the beautiful views. This area is so much nicer than the jam packed Phillipsburg area with cruise ships and all the shops that go with them not to mention the impossible traffic and parking makes Oyster Pond and the French side of St. Marteen the best part of the island.

“Relaxing and not exploring”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2015

A good place to stay put for a week if you are noot into exploring. It's a little out of the way. Take a one-day catamaran trip, or take the ferry to St. Barths.

“Oyster Pond worth staying at”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2015

A quiet neighborhood, with several restaurants and marina bar in walking distance, a 7 day a week grocery (Pain d'Epice), another smaller market, short hikes to Baie Lucas, Dawn Beach, and a hilltop lookout. There is a variety of lodgings, lovely plantings everywhere, and it was easy to travel up to the northern shore beaches.
