If you're looking for a beach that's quiet but not totally secluded, Cupecoy is a good choice. Its white sands are backed by low sandstone cliffs that have been eroded in such a way that they provide a run of small semiprivate coves.

This is a small beach on the Dutch side by the French border. Part of it sits on a sandstone shelf with beautiful sandstone cliffs while the rest of the beach is soft, white sand. The beach varies in size depending on the tides. There...More

Cupecoy Beach was amazing! It was a secluded beach with beautiful water and with very few people, but the people that were there with us on the same beach were all elderly and completely nude. Needless to say, our four teenage boys were somewhat surprised...More

If you like pristine sand and no crowds, this is the place for you. Located past Maho and Mullet Bay, I drove past the entrance area only catching a small sign out of the corner of my eye on the left side of the road....More

Our 3 couples were spending a week driving around St. Martin. Cupecoy Bay was on our list because of our memorable visit 2 years ago. Again, we were not disappointed. The first challenge was finding the poorly-marked turn-off just north of the Ocean Club into...More

OK tourists. Having grown up on this island and traveling back every few years, I know this is one of those places you don't want to miss, even if it's a little hard to find. This beach is through the Maho area and past Mullet...More

Took a little time to find exactly where it was. Surf was pretty rough and it gets deep fast. It was a nice break from the crowds on Orient Beach. Worth the visit. No facilities.

If you wish a beautiful tan and lots of sun, go to Cupecoy. Unfortunately, you never know how much of a beach there will be from day to day because of the waves which wash away and bring back the beach. The sun is upon...More

There are still steps to all parts of this beach but the sand is variable since the hurricane in the early 90's. It tends to move up and down the beach quite dramatically. It is still very much worth a visit. Dany is still... More

The beach is on the Dutch side but only a few hundred yards to the French side. The best things about St. Maarten are the beaches shopping (duty free) the butterfly farm and Lotterie Farm with a zip line. A car is most... More

The island is not particularly gay but there are two official nude beaches only and if you are so sheltered that you can not deal with this just don't go to them or adjust your mindset. Being open minded is a good thing in... More
