St. Martin Beaches

Orient Beach is the most popular beach on the island. It has numerous beach bars, activity shops, and restaurants along the beachfront. (Orient beach is a clothing optional beach)

We arrived early so we had the beach to ourselves. (Damn, I hate it when that happens.)

The Original BayWatch Bar and Grill. The owner collects U.S. license plates.

Dawn Beach was probably our favorite beach on the island. It is somewhat secluded, has nice white sand, and beautiful blue water. The snorkeling is good hear, although it was very rough the day we visited.

Maho Beach with the Sunset Beach Bar in the distance. The Sunset Beach Bar was a nice place to watch the planes land at the airport. (And the daily special is "topless women drink for free".) Everyday at about 3:00, the bar starts getting crowded with people waiting to see the big 747s land. (see below) The airport landing strip is literally starts on the beach.

Maho Beach has a few large visitors in the afternoon hours!

Phillipsburg Beach

Olgie's Beach Bar is a great place to unwind when your tired of shopping in Phillipsburg. It is located just off the main drag on the ocean. (Down from the center pier)
