Beaches on St Maarten/St Martin

Friar´s Bay: a laid-back, casual
tropical beach on French St. Martin

Post Hurricane Irma - Update
Friar's Bay and the adjoining Happy Bay were fortunate to sustain the least of damages and destruction on the French side from Hurricane Irma in September 2017. However, the palm cove that fringed the beach and the two beach bars/restaurants on Friar's Bay were destroyed. Now, three months later, we are happy to report that Kali's Beach Bar is open again. Friar's Bay Beach bar is under reconstruction and supposed to open its doors again in a few weeks. The palm trees are growing back and the natural beauty of this beach will soon be fully back. Worth to visit for a relaxing day on this tropical beach on the French side of St. Martin.

Friar's Bay before Hurricane Irma

Friar´s Bay (also called "Anse des Pères"), North of the French capital Marigot, is a pretty, small, 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 a fair amount of sand, beautiful seashells to collect, and a good view of the neighboring British island Anguilla. Facing the west coast, Friar´s Bay has also lovely sunset views. It is a very relaxed and laid-back beach to enjoy!

To get there, take the main road N7 from Marigot heading North towards Grand Case. A few miles off Marigot, follow the sign for Friar´s Bay and its restaurants, and turn left onto the dirt road. The ride will get a bit rough and bumpy at the end....
Once you get there, you will see the beach restaurants at both sides of the bay, and the beach in between. On weekdays the beach is usually quiet. Most local people go to this beach on Sunday only.
