Caribbean rental vacation. Beaches from St Martin

The entire island has 36 perfect white sand beaches, though there probably are more, ranging from secluded coastal crescents to broad expanses of untouched sand. Beaches are seldom very crowded, even in peak season, and all are easily reached by little roads off the highway.


Tour of French St. Martin's better known beaches, from west to east:

1) Baie Longue, the largest beach, pretty and isolated;

2) Plum Bay, reachable by walking west around Pointe du Canonnier, is small and shady and offers good surfing close to the rocks;

3) Baie Rouge is considered a really beautiful stretch of sand and boasts some nice dive spots;

4) Nettlé Baie stretches between Pierres a Chaux Point and Sandy Ground Bridge right to Marigot Bay, with many access points from the seaside hotels, quite a few watersports and dive operations;
