Beaches on St Maarten/St Martin

Plum Bay: a romantic and peaceful
beach on French St Martin

Secluded Plum Bay, or Baie aux Prunes in French, is just beside Long Bay and well known to surfers. The beach is very little visited during weekdays, although beautiful and without a doubt one of the most peaceful and romantic beaches on the island. It appears that a plum in English is a prune in French, but we couldn´t figure out how the bay got its name from.

At the northern end of the beach is the rock of Plum Bay, a rather pretty site that expands into the Falaise des Oiseaux (Birds' Cliff) as you continue around the island. The road of "Falaise des Oiseaux" on the French side of Terres Basses/The Lowlands is also the access road to the beach. Just follow the signs to the parking area.

Plum Bay is as peaceful as it gets, but bring your own supplies and umbrella, as there are no amenities. There are only few people on the beach during the week. Only on weekends it gets a bit more busy.

If you want to get away from it all, this is one of the most beautifully intimate and calm beaches around the island. At the very western tip of the island, it is also a great romantic sunset spot. There's lots of sand, and snorkeling is good, but when you wade into the water, watch out, as corals are just off the beach.
