Grand Case Bay "Gourmet Beach"of French St Martin

Grand Case Beach, in French called "Baie" or "Plage de Grand Case", is a sweeping curve of a very pretty, one mile long, white sandy beach with quite calm waters. The beach is awesome for swimming and has some nice snorkeling spots towards either end of the beach, or around the reef at "Créole Rock".

The bay has a wonderful view of neighboring Anguilla and Créole Rock. For information on clothing optional
