The whole two weeks, the Hiniken regatta was either setting up or taking down the stages. Ruined a beach for all timeshare holders for this entire time. Very unhappy. In the past it was only three days or so. The party, I am okay with. But this turning the whole area into a huge venue for Hinekin is crazy.

We happened to be staying in Simpson Bay while the Regatta was on and Saturday and Sunday nights were the big wrap-up parties and concerts held at Kim Sha Beach. It's always a great beach but the whole place was transformed into a fabulous venue with an amazing stage and lots of fun.

Every time we come to St. Maarten, I have to go to this amazing beach. They have a bonfire every Wednesday and Friday evening. There is the Buccaneer Beach Bar on sight, which is a very fun bar. You can take your drink and walk or dance along the gorgeous beach shores. You will run into Daisy Mae, an adorable... More

Nice quiet beach connected to the Atrium Resort. They have chairs, umbrellas, and towels so you can relax at the beach.

Kim Sha Beach is right in between 2 great bars, Buccaneers and Toppers. We like the crowd because it is a bit more mature and there is a dinghy dock so we don't have to pull up on the beach, plus kayak rentals.

A beautiful, yet quiet beach in the heart of Simpson Bay surrounded by great restaurants and bars! Not dirty and plenty of water sports and sailing on this beach for rental!
