Great white sand, very shallow serene, warm, calm water. There is a fun diving platform to swim out to and a paddle boat for rent. One restaurant on the beach rents a few chairs, rounding out the amenities.

We visited this beach while on a cruise and were not disappointed. We asked a taxi driver for a fmaily friendly beach, and they brought us here. The water is calm, very clear, with lots of fish to see. There is shade from palm trees, and nice little restaurant right there. Definitely worth a visit, especially if you have kids.

Did lots of reasearch before our second trip to St. Martin and decided to spend a portion of our day here. It was a Saturday so lots of locals spending time with their families and enjoying the day as well.

Not crowded at all and everyone we encountered was very friendly and welcoming. My son played with the local children and we had a great few hours at the beach.

Will definately return!

Accidentally found this beach when looking for Orient Bay and liked it so much we spent the day. Very popular with locals, but they don't mind tourists at all. No surf and a very gentle slope makes it a great place for small kids and a nice place to just sit in the water. Strong breeze, so lots of kite surfers out on the bay.
