My family and I arrived to St. Martin on a cruise ship. After seeing the crowded beaches of St. Thomas, I did some research with the local in St. Martin to try to find a beach with some solitude. Several locals recommended Le Galion. We took the taxi from the main port in Phillipsburg. The ride was a reasonable $42 for six people, each way (always barter for a lower fare) and took about 20 minutes. You can stop at a convenience store on the way for drinks/snacks. The beach was amazing, even for someone like myself who has been to the best in Florida and the Caribbean. The beach bar had very reasonable prices and the food was surprisingly very good and more than hot dogs and burgers. I had a mahi mahi sandwich that was better than any I've had. Very quiet, low key beach scene and an incredible view all around. Few topless folks if that concerns you. Overall, if you want a great day at the beach, go here.
