There is access to a few restaurants at the 2 resorts that are there ( yes, only 2) there is also a quickie mart at the Divi for snacks, ice cream, and drinks. Highly recommend. Great place to...

We want to check this beach for our grand daughters. The problem perhaps was we'd already been to some awesome beaches. Little Bay was not chrystal clear and not calm. We'd been to Orient and it was much better. It really depends when you're traveling with kids there are so many factors...

Little Bay Beach was a wonderful add-on to our annual trip to St Maarten. This year we spent an extra night at Divi at Little Bay just to try something different. The first thing that you notice when you come through the open entrance to the resort is the beach. It is beautiful. Even though there was a storm the... More

We stayed at the DVLB resort so the Beach was 50 yards from our room thru a breezeway. Excellent beach good for families - babies to 80 year olds there and everyone seemed to be having a good time

On arriving in port, we took a cab over to the Divi Resort and Little Bay beach. Cab is $5 each. Divi has a beautiful facility there and you can rent chairs and umbrellas for $5 each, and use restrooms for free. Decent snorkeling along the rocks on left, and there is a sunken helicopter quite a ways out on... More

Great beach, good snorkeling. Worth going to. Nice surf, very relaxing. You have to walk in if you are not a hotel guest, but I did talk to some who got around that. Won't find many shells here but the snorkeling along the rocks is nice. Very little current and waves are small.

Little bay beach is very nice, The water is very clear for sure. If you want to snorkel, there is a site in the bay where you have an Helicopter and airplane at the bottom of the bay with all the fishes around. Nice site

The beach was clean, friendly and inviting. You can enjoy numerous water sports or lie back and read a book.

This beach is very calm and peaceful. The sand is very smooth, and the water is perfect to just relax with a raft. There are water sport rentals available. A bar and grill with excellent food. And chairs and umbrellas are also available. Also a beautiful sunset can be seen!!
