This beach has a decent amount of parking and a lot of space to spread out down on the sand. Snorkeling is good, particularly near the beach access, and you can swim around the corner to an even more secluded cove with great reefs just...More

This is a great beach on the French side but make sure to arrive early of you're driving because it gets busy with limited parking. The water is beautiful but some of the areas of the beach are rocky.

If looking to the island go to the left side off the beach. Nice to snorkel, some beds for rent but more important "Chez Raymond" is there. A typical Caribbean BBQ place and they honestly serve the best ribs on the island. A must do...More

The cliffs were exciting to jump off and the water is clear and calm with just a slow rock. Great for snorkeling, lounging in the $20 beach chair rental and umbrella rental, or swimming.

One of my top 3 beaches on the island. It's between this and Friar's Bay for my favorite beach. The snorkeling is fair. I've been to Hawaii quite a bit where the snorkeling is superb. It's decent at Baie Rouge but doesn't compare to Hawaii....More

This took forever to find, but what a gem. You park, walk down to the beach, the bar guy will get you a chair ($25 for 2) and hang out. Water was calm and beautiful. Snorkeling right there. Seriously, this is where the snorkel tours...More

If you're looking for places to get away and enjoy amazing snorkeling, this is the spot! We took our own snorkel gear and a dry bag, and swam around the point to the right with our stuff. There are several gorgeous beaches with outstanding snorkeling....More

From Marigot you cross the bridge which is at Sandy-Ground and keep driving through Baie-Nettlé Bay. After you have passed the cluster of hotels the road will go up a bit of an incline and then take a sharp turn to the... More
