The 38 Beaches of St. Martin/St. Maarten are world famous for their beautiful white sand and turquoise water. Each beach is unique, and all beaches are open to the public. Coral reefs populated by colorful marine life fringe the coast, and several tiny islets with lovely beaches are just a short distance away. St. Martin is only a quick flight away from the islands of Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Barths, and Anguilla; enabling visitors to sample a wide variety of beaches and surroundings.
