Oyster Pond: a picturesque marina between the Dutch and French side

Right on the border between the French and the Dutch side of the island lies Oyster Pond. It doesn't have a beach, but a picturesque harbor that protects sailboats and charters from the choppy Atlantic ocean. It is a pretty marina with a good and popular waterfront restaurant, Quai Ouest.

Oyster Pond or Oyster Bay is a great location on the Atlantic side of St. Maarten and St. Martin. Captain Oliver´s marina, hotel and restaurant used to be the place to go. However, Hurricane Irme destroyed this landmark of Oyster Pond in September 2017. A year later, the marina still suffers from the devastating storm, and recovery is hardly in sight. It is not yet known either, when and if the marina will be able again to have the ferry boat to St. Barth's again.

Oyster Bay or Oyster Pond is facing the Atlantic, it can be windy and a bit more rough at times, although the reef protects the area very well. Before hurricane Irma, it used to be paradise for boating people and the starting point for a number of Caribbean sailing tours and cruises. The Voyageur ferry to St. Barth also left from the marina. Notice that the Oyster Bay Resort, a landmark of this area, reopened its timeshares in summer of 2018 including a restaurant open to the public.

At the heart of Oyster Pond still is Captain Oliver's Marina, although destroyed and presently only offering limited marina facilities. Behind and above the marina are a few small hotels and budget oriented rental properties converted from former hotels in this area. The studios at Les Balcons d' Oyster Pond are very competitively priced and below island-wide prices.

Oyster Bay or Oyster Pond w. "Babit Point"

Babit Point, the peninsula to the left encircles the bay and transforms it to an ideal protected harbor. The narrow inlet between Babit Point (French side) and Oyster Bay Resort (Dutch side) is a challenge.
