One of the Best Beaches on St. Maarten

Little Bay beach is beautiful. The waves are very calming and the beach is quite large at the Divi Little Bay. This beach is our favorite.

Clean, clear water. Great for snorkeling! Drop in at Gizmo's Grill at Divi Little Bay for great food and entertainment. Lounge chairs with umbrellas right on the beach. Floating bar worth swimming or snorkelling to.

We took the ferry to Phillipsburg from the cruise terminal and from there, walked to Little Bay. It's about a 25 mins walk. It's quite a walk as you have to walk up hills. Beach is in front of the Divi resort. Food was cheap. Chair was $5, umbrella $5.

It sure beats the beach in front of Philipsburg but there are nicer beaches on the island. Rent a car and drive around to explore the island or hire a cab and let them take you around.

If you are staying in or near Phillipsburg or on a cruise ship visiting for a day, Little Bay is easy to reach and quite pleasant. Take a taxi or, if you have a car you can park at the Divi resort for a nominal fee; there is no free parking. Snorkel fear is available for rent. Access to the... More

Beautiful beach!! We didn't spend much time here but it has clear quiet calm waters, nice sand, no seaweed. You can watch cruise ships come in from afar. Kids can bodysurf on the small waves. Love how peaceful and beautiful it was here.

Nice beach but not the best snorkelling spot. Lots of people jumped off the rock here, other than that not much to do or see here

Small, quiet beach area. Took to the beach five mornings about 9 AM. There were things to do, but the beach was never crowded. Beautiful, warm water.
