Absolutely perstine beach! Clear water, pinkish sand and a reef. Beach chairs were a bit run down but we spent most of our time there in the water.

It basically closes down many of its stores in winter - but you will avoid the crowds. People are friendly. Nice sandy beaches. It can be windy in the evenings.

We took the ferry over from St. Martin. We took a taxi tour, then our driver dropped us off here for a few hours for lunch and beach time. The waters are not perfectly calm and still, as there is some wind here, but it is certainly enjoyable. The water is crystal clear and warm. There are reefs you can... More

I can't say enough about this place. It was truly breathtaking. It is worth the trip. The water is amazing and the clearest I have ever seen, and I've been to many islands. White sand beaches for what seems like miles. A must see

Shoal bay has been growing and is more lively than some other beaches on the island. There are multiple restaurants, hotels, and bars on the bay. Marine park right there means great snorkeling. The best parking is just $5 per day at the parking lot right before you go down the last hill to the beach. It's a great place... More
