Island · Hidden Gem · Beach
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.

  • Great island, a beautiful place to visit!
  • I came by here as a result of a tour of the islands in this area. This entire area was great to see from far away and even better up close in person. This island location doesn't have very much to do other than sitting on the beach and exploring the surrounding area. Once here you could probably walk around the island within 30 minutes taking your time.
  • Gorgeous bay with a sandy beach! What a dream to Anker with your sailing yacht!
  • Such a lovely uninhabited island we visited on our Tradewinds sailing cruise. Well, inhabited by hermit crab and little lizards maybe. We had a fun time exploring this little piece of heaven—and then we anchored and had lunch in the bay. Amazing views.
  • Love it there. It is PARADISE
