  • One of over 25 similar public beaches on the island. A definite MUST VISIT is the Sunset Bar and beach when ever a jumbo jetliner is approaching Princess Juliana Airport to land. You will never forget...  more »
  • Sure, splashing on the big cruise ships is fun, but there's nothing like swimming in the deep, clear, warm waters of the ocean with a sandy beach to lie on, with room to spare!  more »
