Best Snorkeling

Recommended Posts

the reason that no one is responding is because st martin is not a great snorkeling destination. dawn beach had ok snorkeling if it is a calm day, but that's about it. if your cruise takes you to curacao or st thomas, they would be much better.

we were told Dawn Beach from several locals but it was way too choppy for us to go out. St. John -- waterlemon cay is a great spot- we couldn't gop but many locals told us we would see turtles, stingrays and starfish there. We have to go back now:D

We Took A Taxi To Baie Rouge Beach. Beach Is Remote And Most Taxi Prefer To Go To "busy" Beaches. Beach Had A Small Crowd , Maybe 40 People But Snorkeling Was Excellent To The Left Of The Beach Around The Rocky Side. Water Was Clear And The Waves Were Not Bad. Taxi Cost Us $10 A Person Round Trip.

We will be cruising on Miracle to St. Maarten on 3/14. Were there reefs? What was the depth of the water?

 

Thanks!

Actualy there is nice snorklilng of Pinel Island on the french side, which is really just a peninsular out into the ocean. Nice restaurants there too (a little pricey!). Great beach. There are also many offshore islands on the northeast side that have nice diving/snorkeling (Creole Rock, Green Key, etc.) that are only accesible by boat.

No, Pinel is not a peninsula, it is an island.

My vote for snorkeling is Creole Rock, which happens to be on the North side of the island, not North East.
