If you're looking for a beach that's quiet but not totally secluded, Cupecoy is a good choice. Its white sands are backed by low sandstone cliffs that have been eroded in such a way that they provide a run of small semiprivate coves.

The property had several issues. There was algae around the jacuzzi and standing water on the pool deck which came from the leak in the jacuzzi. The leak to the jacuzzi was not repaired so we had to put hose in it to keep filling it up. The pump for the swimming pool was broken so by Wednesday, the water... More

Cupecoy Beach was amazing! It was a secluded beach with beautiful water and with very few people, but the people that were there with us on the same beach were all elderly and completely nude. Needless to say, our four teenage boys were somewhat surprised to experience such a sight. They handled it well considering this is not something you... More

We found this beach while driving around, there was a sign that said free parking and beach access so we gave it a shot. The beach is a good size and it was secluded, I think there were only 3 other people on the entire beach. The path that you need to walk down is a bit steep and rocky... More

If you like pristine sand and no crowds, this is the place for you. Located past Maho and Mullet Bay, I drove past the entrance area only catching a small sign out of the corner of my eye on the left side of the road. Turned around and found a secluded spot for parking almost at the sea's edge, We... More

Our 3 couples were spending a week driving around St. Martin. Cupecoy Bay was on our list because of our memorable visit 2 years ago. Again, we were not disappointed. The first challenge was finding the poorly-marked turn-off just north of the Ocean Club into an unpaved, rutted, patch of dirt that serves as a parking lot. This was close... More

OK tourists. Having grown up on this island and traveling back every few years, I know this is one of those places you don't want to miss, even if it's a little hard to find. This beach is through the Maho area and past Mullet Bay. Look on the left just before the big new Blue Mall and you will... More

If you don't like crowds, but love beutiful views and your own private beach this is the place for you! This little slice of paradise isn't easy to find but well worth it! Don't be a prude because it's clothing optional but that makes it that much better. And don't forget to try Danny's chicken and/or ribs! The best on... More

Took a little time to find exactly where it was. Surf was pretty rough and it gets deep fast. It was a nice break from the crowds on Orient Beach. Worth the visit. No facilities.

If you wish a beautiful tan and lots of sun, go to Cupecoy. Unfortunately, you never know how much of a beach there will be from day to day because of the waves which wash away and bring back the beach. The sun is upon you all day at this beach, and make sure to have sun screen. This is... More

Stayed at the Cliffs at Cupecoy Bay and the rental unit and the scenery was beautiful to wake up to everyday. As far as beach going only okay. Not much beach to hang out on with very little in amenities but for private days it is pretty secluded. Snorkeling was cool but the current was fairly strong there so be... More
