Dawn Beach, Sint Maarten

#6 of 14 in Parks in Sint Maarten
Beach · Nature / Park
Head down to the fine white sands of Dawn Beach, a restful stretch of coastline. Stroll along the sugary shore soaking in the lazy atmosphere, or rent a lounge chair and umbrella and get to work on your vacation reading. Businesses nearby rent out snorkeling gear, so you can head out to the abundant reef that lies just a little way off the shore. Put Dawn Beach and other Oyster Pond attractions into our Oyster Pond trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Sadly this beach was hit very hard by Hurricane Irma in 2017 and hasn’t quite recovered. It was a very cool place to watch the sunrise, but isn’t a very nice beach currently.
  • The section near The Westin is just average with mostly Americans and hotel crowd. Being that it’s on St Maarten, ‘average’ is still better than your average beach at home but it doesn’t compare to many other beaches on the island, especially the ones on the French side. Heard Dawn Beach is better on the north end but we didn’t walk up.
  • Closed because of hurricane. No beach any more. Very sad. Hopefully it will get back to what it once was.
  • Beautiful place! In some spots it looks like you are about to drive straight into the ocean!
  • This place is wonderful for snorkeling and swimming. Snorkel by the rocks.
