Best beach so far.

I love this place. Quiet and relaxing. The bartender at the one bar there (not Gus, the other one) is so nice. We have spent the last 3 evenings there.

Nice beach, with some cons. The are rocks on the shore and the waters go deep quite quickly. The undertow is also quite strong. In general, one might pay a lot of attention when going with children. It's possible to rent chairs and umbrella and at Gus kiosk you can also have something to eat.

MUST SEE!!! Very relaxing beach and best to stay to watch the sunset!~ Water is very calm most of the time and there is a big rock to the side where you can do great snorkeling!

Hard beach to find, but well worth it!!! Bring your snorkel gear or rent some there.. Also make sure to get your beach chairs thru Gus', rather then questionable people in parking lot.. Plan ahead and pack your cooler and towels too. Family friendly.

This beach is within walking distance (ten to fifteen minutes) for those who choose hotels in the Baie Nettlé Bay area, just outside of Marigot, the capital of the French side. There is a bar and grill-style beach 'restaurant' when you arrive at the beach from the parking lot and beach lawn-chairs are available for rent, with on-the-beach kiosks of... More

Very easy to get to xv never parking and two chairs and an umbrella was only $20. Bring or rent a fun and snorkel. Head to the right stopping the small point and you can go through a small rock arch to see small private beaches. Great snorkeling and fish to see along the way. Nice for and bar right... More

We rented a house on Baie Rouge and we walked the beach almost everyday. The beach is very nice but the waves can be very rough at times. I enjoyed going out for a swim when it was calm.

Baie Rouge was a little misleading, I was expecting red sand, but it's a little pink... i think, I really didn't see it but my friend said she did. Not many people on the beach and the waves were pretty calm and small. It feels like a locals beach since the beach is among a residential area. The best part... More
