Post Hurricane Irma - Notice
Simpson Bay Beach as such did not sustain major changes or destruction from the hurricane. This still is a white powdery sand beach, some parts of the sand however moved to the southern side, toward Mary's Boon Plantation (presently closed) and The Karakter Beach Bar (re-opened after Irma).
This clean beach with its turquoise waters is very inviting both, for a swim or 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 vulcano mountain peaking out of the sea is just spectacular.
Although the beach is lovely, it is frequented only by few people, yet it is well worth the visit for lovers of a quiet beach. It has some water sports, yet it is still a quiet and relaxing beach, and best is to bring your own supplies as you won't find vendors or concessions here.
It is a perfect spot for spending a quiet day on the beach or to enjoy staying at one of the beachfront getaways, such as the Sea Belle Villa or the Sea Place Villa.
Simpson Bay is a good choice for people who want to stay close to a large range of restaurants, bars and casinos, and still appreciate privacy of a rental home away from home.
If you need beach chairs, you may have to bring your own unless you use the facilities of Karakter Beach Bar (open after hurricane Irma!) along with a drink or snack.
