I understand the draw to Maho Beach for the airplanes, but that gets old after a few minutes. Grand Case Beach is clean and relaxing. The beach isn't crowded, and the sand is very soft. The water and the views are spectacular. Rainbow Cafe on...More

Grand Case is slowly recovering from 2017’s Hurricane Irma. Don’t let that stop you from coming here! It’s a jewel of a beach, a sweeping mile long with powdery white sand and calm, clear water. Perfect for swimming and snorkeling – we found gorgeous starfish...More

Absolutely loved Grand Case beach, not very crowded during the week. You must bring a umbrella for the sun as not available by vendors. The water is so blue and clear. They also have a great bar for cocktails and lunch.

It is a beautiful, tranquil beach. There are restaurants and bars on the beach that you can rent beach chairs from.

Perfect soft white sand, no rocks in the water and lots of fish to see when snorkeling. Pure paradise. The beach restaurant is a bonus with very high quality food, you can use their chairs if you eat there.

Grand Case beach is a nice length for walking. The north end of the beach has some pretty fish who swim amongst the rocks, although not that many. Note, you cannot easily get out of the water on the north part of the beach, so...More

The beach is very nice. Must pick places to go in, some of the places have large drop offs but many places you can easily go in and enjoy yourself without large waves.

We stopped at this beach on our tour. It is beautiful and is in a small French town. Chair and umbrella was $15 to rent. Food at the restaurant near by was delicious and they serve you on the beach.

The Dutch side is much better than the French side. You can drive around easily on either. There is still much debris everywhere, even boats on the side of the road. Check to see if your restaurant is open before going out... More

The beach is public. The water is clear and most areas are clear of rocks. The best snorkeling is at the ends of the bay.
