Nettle Bay, as close to the sea as possible on St. Martin

Nettle Bay is a narrow strip of land between Marigot/Sand Ground and Terres Basses/Lowlands. On one side is the open Caribbean Sea with an excellent sandy beach, on the other side, just a few yards away, is the picturesque lagoon. The lagoon is the center piece of St. Maarten and St. Martin, where the big yachts of the rich and famous anchor. 

Between the lagoon side hotels, now mostly converted to studios and apartments, and the seaside bungalows and condos, is the road connection between the French part and Dutch part of the island. Some restaurants, shops and water sports offices are located in this area, too. 

The seaside beach is pure, almost white sand and the surf is most times very gentle as this is the Caribbean side. Within the gated apartment communities are communal pools. Nettle Bay is a fine option for those, who wish to be as close as possible to the beach and do not have the budget for an upscale villa. The distance between the bungalows and the water edge is between 10 to 50 yards.
