Happy Bay Beach, Saint-Martin

4.3
#4 of 8 in Beaches in Saint-Martin
Enjoy the tranquil, secluded atmosphere of Happy Bay Beach. Somewhat difficult to access, the pristine beach very rarely sees crowds, and has no amenities except for the rare beverage vendor. After a short hike up a small hill, you'll arrive at the isolated stretch of soft white sand and warm blue waters. A popular spot for snorkeling, the beach also offers plenty of shade from the palm trees that line the shore. Note that swimwear is optional, and it is not out of the ordinary to see people bathing topless or completely nude.
