Access to beaches

We arrived in St. Maarten yesterday afternoon. We spent yesterday afternoon and most of today exploring. Had a wonderful meal at the Boat House Restaraunt in Simpson Bay. I'll give a full report when the trip is over.

We are having trouble finding access to some of the beaches. We drove around Dawns Beach, but couldn't figure out how to get to it (we were down by the lconstruction site where they are building a new resort). Any insight?

There is a quite a bit of construction going on around Cupecoy Beach (just past Atlantis Casino). Can someone tell me where to park and how to access the beach?

Where is parking for Mullet Bay Beach? We drove through the golf course but wasn't sure where the actual beach was located.

The map we received when renting the car hasn't been much help. I haven't looked yet, but does anyone know if I can buy a detailed map that will show exactly how to get to all of these beaches?

Sorry for all the questions. Any help would be appreciated.

Have heard it's tough right now around Dawn. The only place you can try, I believe, is right next to, or rather behind) Mr. Busby's.

To get to Cupecoy Beach, drive past Sapphire and Ocean Club coming from Maho. As the road turns to the right, stay straight. You will see a wall and what looks like a dirts driveway with cars parkes along the edges. Park there, wlk along the wall to the opening on the left. Danny will be there and take good care of you.

Haven't been to Mullet yet, but there is an entrance to what I believe is a large parking lot at the beach from the golf course. If you're driving thru the golf course from Maho, the beach is on your left. There is a turn somewhere that crosses the golf course, but can't tell you exactly where.

Perhaps Den can give better directions to this one!

take the second left after leaving Maho and then a quick right to the parking for Mullet Bay. The beach is on the other side of the fairway that separates the road and the ocean.
