Beaches We’ve got plenty —37 to be exact.

On St. Martin/St. Maarten, there’s a beach for every mile. Our tiny, 37 square miles of island includes 37 beaches — some of them are “clothing optional” (on the French side). As a guest at the Oyster Bay Beach Resort, you‘ll enjoy the convenient access to Dawn Beach and all it has to offer.

Dawn Beach
Oyster Bay Beach Resort has its very own piece of a beautiful and pristine St. Maarten beach. The resort provides complimentary beach umbrellas, beach chairs and snorkeling equipment. Beach towels are available in the room. Full beach service, including food and drinks, is available. Enjoy breathtaking shades of ocean blue and the scenic St. Barths in the distance.

Great Bay Beach
One of many well-known sites on the Dutch side of the island, Great Bay Beach offers sweeping views of the ocean and the cruise ships entering the harbor. Sandy beaches, beachside cafes, a wide beachfront boardwalk and its proximity to shopper’s paradise — Front Street — make it an attractive location.

Simpson Bay Beach
You barely have to leave the airport to enjoy Simpson Bay Beach. Just a short trip from plane to sand and you’ll find a collection of yachts sailing beneath the Simpson Bay Bridge, as well as the remains of an old shipwreck jutting up out of the bay.

Orient Bay
Well-known as one of St. Maarten’s most liberal beaches (clothing optional), Orient Bay on the French side of the island is two miles of white sand and five separate beaches. Each of these beaches are served by a different French-owned beach concession with wonderful food and drink available in beach huts well off the pristine beach. The bay is also a haven for parasailing, water skiing, wave runners, windsurfing and horseback riding. Our resort sponsors weekly parties at Bikini Beach, which includes transportation to the beach as well as food and drink.

Baie Lounge
St. Martin’s longest and one of the most private beaches, Baie Lounge is located among some of the island’s most exclusive pieces of real estate.
