Guana Bay Beach on St Maarten/St Martin

Guana Bay: a quiet & secluded beach
on Dutch St. Maarten, near Philipsburg

Guana Bay is a long, wide bay with excellent sand, and at is so quiet, that ten visitors would already constitute a busy day. As it is exposed to the Atlantic, it gets a stronger surf on some days of the year. A surf that makes it attractive for body boarding and surfing. When you select Guana Bay, bring an umbrella, as there is no shade. The beach is large and almost deserted. Not too many people take the road over the hill to this shore, which is 5 minutes Northeast of Philipsburg.

Quiet days on the white sand beach of Guana Bay where you hardly see any people. Enjoy a beach just for you!

Post Hurricane Irma - Update
Guana Bay Beach as such did not suffer much from the hurricane. As to private homes & villas in the area, the impact of Irma was very different from one to the other property. Some buildings stayed completely intact, others were badly damaged. The popular Geo rental villas sustained mostly severe damage and it will probably take a year to get them back into shape.

Access to the Guana Bay road is behind the Great Salt Pond of Philipsburg. Coming from Pondfill road and heading North to Oyster Pond, after less than 1/2 mile you´ll see the sign for Guana Bay, where you have to turn right. Since a few years, the road up and down the hill to reach Guana Bay is paved, so access is a rather easy drive by car.

Once you are there, you will enjoy a fabulous view of St. Barth's in the distance, less than 15 miles away. Guana Bay is a secluded beach, with no bars, no "Lolo´s", no amenities, and no service. So bring your own cooler, food & drinks to enjoy the rugged beauty of this beach. Depending on weather there are great waves for bodysurfing.
