Dawn Beach Paradise

Nestled into a lush hillside and fronted by beautiful Dawn Beach, famed for its glorious sunrises, this gem seduces with a serene Caribbean atmosphere that yields countless things to do in St. Maarten, both at sea and on land.

Located just south of the Dutch/French border, this paradise is famous for two things: One, the amazing sunrises that earned the shoreline its name. And two, clear water that’s perfect for snorkeling. The beach receives a lot of foot traffic. For more peace and quiet (and that spectacular sunrise), travelers recommend you visit in the morning. Also keep in mind that Dawn Atlantic Ocean waves can sometimes be rough.
