Pinel Island, Saint-Martin

(2,000+ reviews on the web)
Island
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.

  • You like, St Martin, go hang out on the side of Anse Marcel Beach, then take a ride on Pinel island. You will find a magical place called "Karibuni" the boss is called Marion, the boss, Erick, they are at the Top. The table legs in the water, you find here, the lobster grilled, also. It's a great place, you'll love it's forced.

  • Little island paradise with a beautiful water. The day where we went it wasn't too crowded, we could find 3 sunbeds without any problem. The crossing is a bit pricey 10 euros for 10 minutes by boat. Not to be missed.

  • My daughter's finance proposed to her on Pinel Island. It was a perfect location for an engagement. The water is calm and the restaurants on the island were great.  more »
