Friar's Bay, Saint-Martin

3.8
#7 of 8 in Beaches in Saint-Martin
Relax on Friar's Bay, a small St. Martin beach with calm, clear water. Also called "Cove of the Fathers," the beach remains generally tranquil, with most people visiting only on weekends. Sunbathe on the soft white sand and swim (or snorkel) in the water, where the gentle waves are suitable even for small children. Refresh in one of the beach bars lining the shore, rest in the shade of palm trees, or collect the numerous seashells scattered across the sand.
