We visited this beach on a day trip from St. Maarten. We had lunch at Blanchard's Beach Shack and swam and enjoyed the beach. Definitely one of the best beaches in the area.

We took the ferry over from St Martin and spent the day.Absolutely breathtaking beach. Crystal clear water in shades of blue from turquoise to royal. The whitest sandy beach that feels like cool powder on your feet. Quiet relaxing day!

Meads Bay is one of our favorite beaches on the island. Yes, there are a few hotels and restaurants along the beach but they are spaced out and depending what time of year you visit, the beach never looks crowded. My kids liked the clear...More
