Pinel Island, Saint-Martin

(4.1/5 based on 1,900+ 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.

  • SMALL ISLET has 5 minutes by boat only; PINEL is a beautiful setting which is home to iguana and beautiful fish, huge wonderful beaches lined with coconut trees, a transparent water... A bit crowded of course but nice! take a dive, picnic, and put a max of sunscreen as the Sun is terrible at pinel! No waves, shallow waters, the top for kids for info: 10 euros per people the passage to Pinel, children do not pay!
