Many call calm and quiet Mullet a decent alternative to the noise and sand blasts of Maho Bay, or to the crowds of the French side's Orient Bay. Along with its clear waters, travelers were pleased with Mullet Bay's soft sand and surfer-ready waves.

Because of its proximity to the cruise terminal (about a 30-minute drive), you'll likely encounter crowds when ships are docked. Chair and umbrella rentals cost about $15 for the day, according to past visitors. You'll find few facilities here, so plan accordingly. Mullet Bay sits near the airport, just south of scenic Cupecoy Beach and is free to visit.

#1 Orient Bay (St. Martin)

Orient Bay Beach was hit hard by Hurricane Irma and is one of the places on the island that recent visitors said was a bit shocking to see, with most of the businesses completely wiped out. That said, they still extol the virtues of the clear waters and fluffy white sand.

There are some vendors plying food and drinks and the popular Club Orient, a naturalist hotel, which was totally destroyed and is currently under renovation, is operating a few beachside concessions.
