Nettle Bay, Baie Nettle on St. Martin
Laid-back white sand beach near Marigot
Nettle Bay or Baie Nettle in French is a white sand beach located southwest of St. Martin, French side, half way between the capital of Marigot and the prestigious villa community of Terres Basses / French Lowlands. It is important to understand that the narrow landstrip has accommodation on two sides:
the sandy beach towards the open sea between Marigot/St. Martin and Anguilla with great waters for swimming
the lagoon side, which has no real beach and less attractive waters
As the landstrip is narrow, a walk from the lagoon side to the oceanfront is between 100 and 400 yards depending on the access paths to the beachfront.
