Pinel Island, Saint-Martin
(4.2/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
Take a boat ride out to the soft sands of Pinel Island, and enjoy a sheltered beach with calm waters, lethargic iguanas basking in the sun, and lovely hiking trails circumnavigating the island. There’s great snorkeling to be had in the sandy-bottomed bay, and cold beverages to be enjoyed at the beach huts, which also serve food and sell basic beach supplies. Consider arriving early, as the beach will likely get busy. It’s worth bringing your own shade in the event that the beach's loungers and umbrellas are all taken. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Pinel Island by using our Saint-Martin vacation planner.

  • Clear water and wonderful beachside restaurant. Waiters will bring you drinks as you lounge and choose your own fresh lobster from the trap! The best ceviche here! Not a good snorkeling location tho y...  more »
  • Coming from Martinique, we has nothing extraordinary to the landscape. The sea is a little bit clearer, water is good but very little fish. We came especially for snorkelling, so we leave disappointed. National geographic underwater trail is pricey $ 12 but a 15 h the site is free to access. The islet is fast. A lot of "sociable" iguanas is significant. $ 10 crossing it's cheap but good... Go if they do more nothing to discover.
