Laid-back, Casual Tropical Beach on French St. Martin
Friar´s Bay (also called "Anse des Pères"), halfway between Marigot and Grand Case, is a very picturesque, family oriented beach. The bay is well protected from the swells, and attracts also a few boats. For its calm waters, Friar´s Bay is an ideal beach for families. It has 3 beach bars/restaurants, which also provide beach chairs for their guests.
Access to the beach is by two small roads. Look out for the street signs for "Anse des Pères" or "Friar's Bay Beach Cafe".
A few villas on the hill at the Northern end of the beach grant an excellent view over the beach. See the available vacation villas below.
The major restaurant is Friar's Bay Beach Cafe with great French food. The opposite side of the beach is known for its once a month Full Moon Party (in season only).
Friar´s Bay is also the starting point for a short walk in Northern direction, approx. 10 minutes, to Happy Bay, which is a very beautiful, secluded beach without street access.
