Karakter beach is amazing . My favorite Beach on the island!! This is a m,ust. The beach and sand are gorgeous!! White baby powder!! The water is so clear . Now about the people who own the bus on the beach. the food is off the hook! Everything is fabulous. Cannot believe that they serve this type of food on the beach!! All meals and drinks are served on real glasswear. No plastic forks, plates, cups, etc. The frozen drinks are delicious! A bucket of amstel brights are $13 . You don't have to pay for chair or umbrella!!This is a must if you are going to St. Maarten!!!The staff is also amazing!

We ate here twice and had excellent food both times. This is right on the beach in Simpson Bay and near the end of the airport runway.

This was one of the neatest bars. Great beach with nice waves. It's right next to the airport so you can see planes land. I liked this place much better than the bars at Maho..where its an absolute zoo. A wedding was going on when we arrived and they did not shoo us away.

The drinks were really good too.

I wasn't sure what to think when I saw the parking situation, a little crazy. Had to park at Mary Boon's next door and I was afraid I might get towed. Nope. The setting is wonderful, crashing waves and a sailboat anchored just offshore. Children are running about on the beach, sexy French women are tanning, and the staff is relaxed and anxious to please. The "ocean karakter" and "greek karakter" were both great sandwiches, but the dessert was amazing. Strawberry pie that was half tart -half pie and excellent, and a chocolate lava cake that oozed dark chocolate. Our server was a charming blonde girl that was flexible about table switching and we ended up having one of our best afternoons. Do not miss this place. Come for the afternoon to eat, drink, and dip in the ocean.
