Tintamarre Island, Saint-Martin

(4.7/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.
