Post hurricane Irma Shoal Bay East is just as stunningly beautiful if not more so. Sugar white sands, crystal clear waters and several beach restaurants and bars make this my preferred weekend getaway.

This is the most wonderful beach that I have visited with white powdery sand, you cannot beat that. The young man responsible for beach chairs was very professional. Great beach with many restaurants.

Without a doubt - the Best Beach on the planet. Crystal clear blue water, white powder sand, great snorkelling within swimming distance of the beach, never too many people, inexpensive but great lunch options. Just heaven on earth.

Literally the most amazing beach. We took a trip over from neighboring St. Martin and it was incredible. The island itself is much less developed than St Martin but the beaches are to die for.

Shoal Bay East, (point), is now contiguous to Serenity Cottages. It is spectacular and wide. The storm carved into the underbrush shoreline and dumped millions of yards of fresh sand and made a new, magnificent beach. Walking end to end from Zemi Beach to Serenity...More
