Make a self catering villa or holiday rental at Dawn Beach, St Maarten your home away from home

Dawn Beach is on the eastern side of St Maarten, the french side of this charming Caribbean island. Beautiful sandy beaches, clear warm seas, shopping, walking and some excellent dining make this a great choice for a holiday in the Caribbean. Once a secluded undeveloped beach, Dawn Beach is gradually catching up with its neighbours such as Orient Beach. It now offers waterfront restaurants, bars, chair rentals and watersports facilities with great views to St Barths on the horizon.

Things to Do at Dawn Beach, St Maarten

Dawn Beach has soft white sands which are perfect for strolling along the water’s edge or sunbathing beneath a shady cabana. Its long length means that there are still some quiet areas for those wishing to enjoy a quiet spot for reading, away from the more developed areas. Cool off with a swim in the warm aquamarine sea or enjoy some of the watersports which are available. Snorkeling, scuba diving, parasailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, sailing and deep sea fishing are all on offer around Dawn Beach. Horseback riding, jeeps and quad biking are also fun activities on the island. The area also has a vibrant nightlife for those looking to party the night away. Dine out at Mr. Busby’s, right on the beach or walk over to the restaurant at the Oyster Bay Resort to enjoy lunch beneath a shady umbrella. The luxury Westin resort has several restaurants and a casino which are open to non-residents and those staying at Dawn Beach holiday villas nearby.

Places to Visit at Dawn Beach, St Maarten

The high point of St Maarten is Pic du Paradis which is popular for hiking or quad biking and has some beautiful views of the island. Philipsburg is a pleasant pedestrianised town for exploring with its waterfront shops, old church and backstreet cafés which are great for people-watching. The tax-free shopping on the island draws many cruise ships which frequent this charming port town. One of the most popular trips with visitors is the Three Island tour which takes visitors to snorkeling spots around the less well-known islands of Tintamarre, Pinel and Green Key. There is also a popular dive site to the wreck of HMS Proselyte which sank in 1801. The Butterfly Farm has a fine collection of exotic colourful butterflies set amidst tropical landscaped gardens.

Weather at Dawn Beach, St Maarten

As with most Caribbean islands, St Maarten has a warm climate all year round. Temperatures are a very reliable 29-32°C (84-89°F). The islands receive slightly more rain showers in October and November, but this only amounts to around two inches per month and will not spoil your St Maarten holiday villa vacation.

Travel to Dawn Beach, St Maarten

The main airport for flights to and from St Maarten is St Julianna (SXM) International Airport on the Dutch side of the island. It is about 16km from your villa at Dawn Beach, which is on the opposite French side of the island.
