Dawn Beach, Sint Maarten

#6 of 15 in Parks in Sint Maarten
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.

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.
