Simpson Bay beach stretches for 1.5 miles from Princess Juliana airport (SXM) to the lagoon inlet near Pelican Key and Kim Sha Beach. It consists of a long curve of white sand beach. Despite its vicinity to the airport, noise pollution is minimal as the jets do not fly over Simpson Bay Beach. The beach of Simpson Bay is rather wide, and the waters of the Caribbean sea are quiet and calm most time of the year. The bay is facing South, thus being protected from the sometimes strong Northeastern winds.

There are no high-rise buildings along the shoreline. There are some nice condos and a few hotels, such as Mary Boon’s Plantation. One or two blocks to the lagoon, restaurants, bars, casinos and various retail outlets are lined up along the main road.

The beach at Simpson Bay is very inviting for a beach walk. Great views at sunset add to a romantic atmosphere. The view of the island of Saba in some distance, which looks like a big mountain peaking out of the sea is just spectacular.

Although the beach is lovely, it is frequented only by few, and is well worth the visit for lovers of deserted beaches. It has some water sports, yet it is still a quiet and relaxing beach, and best is to bring your own supplies as you probably won’t find vendors or concessions right on the spot. One of the few beach bars is Karakter, which is worthwhile for a stop.

Access to Simpson Bay Beach is possible either from the Mary´s Boon Beach Plantation or from behind Pizza Hut, off Airport Road. If you need beach chairs, you may have to bring your own!
