If you can find Baie Rouge it's the nicest beach on the island that we found. Really good Snorkeling on the far right of the beach. This was by far the least crowded and waves were not bad the day we were there. This is a good spot to spend the day relaxing! I attached a picture by the road... More

It was a very scenic, pretty, clean and well-maintained beach but the waves were too much for us. We could not swim without the current and waves pushing us very far away so we had to leave to another beach where we could swim.

This beach was a little tricky to find, but once there we really enjoyed it. Got a little busy mid-day, but never seemed crowded. Beach bars were fun and served decent beach food and drinks (reasonably priced -- but bring cash). Beach chairs and umbrella were $20, with no discount for eating at one of the beach bars. Lots of...

One of the great things about St Martin is that there are so many great beaches, each a little different. Like many-the signage is not that great so easy to miss. The sand is deep--sort of like cornmeal texture instead of sugar like many other beaches. The good news is that it brushes off easily. Head to the right to... More

I wouldn't say the sand is red. It's more golden than red. Nice beach. The surf was a little rough this morning so we didn't really get to swim. The sand was pretty coarse and a little difficult to walk through in spots. Venus hits you up for $15 for the use of the loungers but take note he doesn't... More

Beautiful Rouge is not the beach to plan a long walk. The sand is somewhat grainy, thus, not packed down like a "normal" beach. As a result, it comes up near or over your ankles with each step...extremely exhausting unless you're more physically fit than the normal Joe. Entrance into water is rocky and the undertow can knock you down... More

Jerry'sHole is right around the corner and a decent snorkel from the beach. You need the ocean to cooperate. First attempt we could not safely get around the corner. Second time it was awesome. One of the beaches on the french side that is a nice beach with a bar and public parking. Michael took great care of while there... More

We drove here at the advice of our local boat captain for the snorkeling. We were surprised and pleased to find this place at the far NW corner of the island (french side). not good signage, and the parking is a little cramped, so get there early.. there are plenty of places that will provide you with lounges and umbrellas...

I almost didn't want to write a review because this is my favorite beach, and I kind of want to keep it a secret! But out of the kindness of my heart I will let you all know that this beach is perfect! There's everything you need for a beach day. There are umbrellas and chairs to rent, a long... More
