Great day at Pinel! The food and drinks at Karibuni were top notch! Our sever Esteban was always right on time and the water / beach was incredible! Rent a chair and relax for a bit, you won't regret! Will definitely go back! HT
Probably the most beautiful beach on the island. It's private and secluded and you can only get there by boat. The water is crystal clear and there are high top bar tables that you can lean on. Definitely go if you are in the area.
Based on information I heard on the plane over to sxm, I thought pinel island was farther away and more remote than it is. Here's what I found....
1. No reservation required. Nice since so many adventure spots in sxm require advanced planning. This is...More
We kayaked to Pinel Island and met my parents who took the ferry. This was my favorite beach at St. Martin. We found some glass and beer bottles in the water though. The beach can get crowded very quickly though with private boats anchoring in...More
Actually the island was never gone just everything on it but the recovery was good and the trip over ($12 roundtrip) was quick and easy. There are two beach restaurants which offer great food. Expect to pay a bit more but it is not unreasonable...More
My husband and I recently purchased a vacation home in SXM and are trying out all the things to do. We took a ferry to pinel island ($12 each person round trip, every 30 mins) from cul-de-sac on the French side. Both beach bars are...More
Always a great day spent on Pinel. A quick boat ride over then two great beach clubs to stay at. Or you can bring your own chairs & umbrella over to help minimize costs.
Both restaurants have very good food and friendly service. And -...More
Great place to get away for the day, peaceful and relaxing. 2 restaurants to choose from, great verity from the menu and not to mention very delicious. Beach chairs & umbrella are available for $20.00 daily rentals. Amazing service from the servers on the beach.

Pinel Island didn’t have good snorkeling when I went there, but there’s a smaller rocky island nearby you can snorkel around. There are enough beach chairs and umbrellas. I paid $20 for 2 chairs and umbrella. Food was fine; typical beach food. We kayaked there, pulled our kayaks up on the sand, and kept our stuff in the kayaks. We always had view of the kayaks. We kayaked to the small island snorkeled there. We were the only people on the small island which is in between Pinel and SXM. We hiked to the other side of Pinel and the water was rough and there was seaweed everywhere. No one could snorkel on the other side, at least not the day I was there.
Hi There We are coming for our Honeymoon in March and were wondering if there are any recommended places to visit or Day Trips that are a must. we are already spending a part of our honeymoon in St Brats but are considering Anguilla for the day and have herad of Pinel Island. Are these both worthwhile? Any other recommendations appreciated! Thanks for your help

I don't know haw many days you will be on SXM, and with St. Barths already included, you may have a full schedule already for your honeymoon. Regarding Pinel, it is easily included as something to do on SXM and is so close (5 minute ferry ride) that it isn't considered a day trip. More like just another choice of how to spend a day on SXM. I would recommend it. If you have the energy and time and like to experience as much as you can in a new location, then a day trip to Anguilla is...More

Suggestions for things around Grand Case (5 Replies)
I will be in St Martin with a large group in Nov. We are planning to go to Pinel Island one day and then try one of the lolos in Grand Case for dinner. I believe the last ferry from Pinel Island bring you back by 4pm and I don't anticipate people being hungry until 6-7pm. Any suggestion on what a large group (14+) might be able to do for the 2-3hrs we have between leaving Pinel and having dinner? Is there shopping in Grand Case and will the shops be open around that time? Any attractions...More

It is a very short drive from Pinel to Orient and can fill the hours you wish to use before dinner.
