4.7
#4 of 7 in Nature in St. Maarten-St. Martin
Enjoy the quiet beaches on Tintamarre Island, a deserted 0.8 sq km (0.3 sq mile) island off the coast of Saint Martin. Although currently uninhabited, you might see traces of the island's past in the remains of a cotton plantation, rail track, and abandoned airstrip. Lounge and swim on its pristine white sand beach, or explore the rockier terrain of the wild, rocky beach just a few minutes away. Take advantage of the island's abundant natural clay, said to have skincare benefits. The island doesn't have any facilities, so bring plenty of food and water for your stay.

    YOU HAVE TO GO! It must depend on the time, but we saw a lot of turtles. A little hard to find them beginning them, but when you grab her hand start to find more and more and more. If you're agile in water safe you'll find a lot to enjoy a lot. My mother stayed on the boat and could just see some from above when they went out to breathe. We had already gone to swim with turtles in Cancun, but here it is much better, more natural, more and less people that bothers you. Us or went to the beach, idk if it's worth. I believe that it is a trip that no one should miss. Very good
