Right on the Beach at Nettle Bay on Saint Martin
Nettle Bay is a narrow promontory between Marigot and the lowlands of St. Martin. A long, flat, usually calm and quiet beach lines up to the North. To the South is the Simpson Bay lagoon. Beside a few hotels, restaurants, and shops, mainly bungalows and small apartment buildings dominate the area. Most of them are part of gated communities and individually owned. Many of those properties are facing the beach and are just only a few footsteps way from the water. The studios, apartments, and condos are arranged in half circles around communal swimming pools or just towards the picture perfect sandy beach. The rental properties are tastefully refurbished with modern furniture and bright colours. Most of them feature a nice terrace, which allows dining in very close vicinity to the gentle waves and the soft sea breeze. The weekly rates start well below one thousand US-Dollars and thus makes them a very economical solution for people, who enjoy being right on the beach. The lagoon side of Nettle Bay offers another set of studios within a former hotel complex. Even the lagoon side is not far away from access to the open sea. The Nettle Bay area also has some water sports and activities to offer, such as jet ski or boat charters for day excursions. Basic food and fine dining options are easy to find in this area. Some beach bars boast the Caribbean feeling. The distance to the airport is just a fifteen minutes drive, near by Marigot with its Caribbean flavour is about 5 minutes away. Nettle Bay is a great option for beach lovers with attractive rental properties. More information: http://www.st-maarten-vacation.com/all-rentals/french-st-martin/nettle-bay/

The white, powdery sand beach is lined with beautiful rock formations and caves. This rich coral sand carpet is very popular, and if you like to find a cave for yourself only, you have to get there early. The beach is easily accessible by a few sets of stairs down to the beach. The surf at Cupecoy Beach can be challenging at times, the wind however is blocked by the rocks. The cliffs provide some shadow in the morning. The sea is crystal clear. The clothing optional community meets at some preferred non-official areas in hidden coves. Great times to enjoy the Cupecoy views are the late afternoon watching the sun go down. As Cupecoy beach faces southwest, there a splendid views of the sunset and the surf. Several condo developments in recent years made this scenic beach to one of the favourite island destinations of Sint Maarten. The rental condos above the cliffs are in the mid and upper rental rate range. They all include nicely manicured gardens, pool, and sport facilities.

Very attractive villas are located between at hillside above Dawn Beach. The beach is known for its sugar white sand facing the Atlantic side of Sint Maarten. The East side guarantees spectacular views of the sunrise with the island of Saint Barth in the distance. This beach is popular not only for its pristine white sand, but also for facilities provided, such as beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling gear, bar and restaurant services. Some more restaurants are a few steps away on the Oyster Bay side. This beach is perfect for a swim in crystal clear waters or a relaxing stroll to the Westin Hotel on the South side of the beach. The coral reef is a bit off the shore, so you have first to swim to get to the best snorkeling spots. The surf can sometimes be a little challenging, so for very young children or toddlers Dawn Beach is not always an ideal beach. It all depends on the weather! The rather steep hill behind the beach at gated Dawn Beach Estate encompasses dozens of private vacation homes. Some are very upscale and large, some are more on the budget side with one or two bedrooms only. Several of these attractive villas are available for rent starting at roughly onethousandfivehundred Dollars per week.No limit to the upper side.
