  • Amazing protected bay near Philipsburg. Little Bay Beach had the best snorkeling that we found on the island! Walk up to Fort Amsterdam for great views.

  • A beautiful beach with clear water. Not too many vendors which is always nice. Always calm and not rough.

  • We rented umbrella and lounges at the Belair Beach Hotel after a super friendly warm welcome. This little stretch of beach was perfect for the day. So quiet and beautiful water. We visited the Gingerbread Cafe where the food is excellent. Both beach and Cafe are a must-do while visiting St Martin.
  • Exceptional beach, on my top 3 favourites in St. Martin. Very powdery sand, so on a windy day it can be a little annoying. The side of the Divi Little Bay resort is the best part of the beach to settle by. You can get access directly thru the resort, but you need to park outside. There's an onsite shop for rental of water equipment like paddle boards and things like that.
  • Staying at Belair Beach Hotel and this beach is wonderful. Soft powdery sand, not drops in footing as you go out in the water and the staff here maintains the beach beautifully! The beach at night is also amazing to watch
  • No review about the beach but the Indigo Bay hike is awesome! 🔥
  • Great spot with evening classes for water aerobics classes. Taught on Saturday morning at 1030 am.
