Spent a lovely day at Karakter, a beach bar and restaurant on Simpson's Bay, next door to Mary's Boon on St Maarten. It's actually a white school bus that got stuck there many years ago. nice sandy beach, a little surf, on south side of airport runway. The food is very gourmet and good, a little pricey tho. The service is excellent on the beach or in the table area. They let you use their umbrellas and lounges for free, but you cannot bring in food or drinks. I really enjoyed it, my husband liked it, especially when the young thing took off her top. You must expect some nudity on St Maarten, no problem for us!
