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 Sint Maarten attractions into our Sint Maarten trip planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

This has had an effect on Dawn Beach, which means that the reef, where you would normally be able to snorkel nicely, is too far off the coast. However, here are some rocks where very nice pictures can be made. The water was not extremely clean, bit cloudy with fairly some seaweed. For the rest a good beach, only a little bars are missing where some food/drinks can be taken.
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.
