Make a holiday rental home or villa in Nettle Bay, Saint Martin, Caribbean your home away from home

Nettle Bay, or Baie Nettle, is a stunningly long, flat beach in St Maarten (St Martin) in the Caribbean. Set between the warm, clear and usually calm waters of the Caribbean Sea and the natural haven of Simpson Lagoon, Nettle Bay is a wonderfully underdeveloped spot on which to relax in complete peace in the Caribbean sunshine. There are a great range of private rental villas in Nettle Bay, as well as enough shops, restaurants and recreation centres to ensure that you want for nothing during your stay in Nettle Bay accommodation.

Things to do in Nettle Bay, Saint Martin

The beach life is, of course, a huge source of entertainment for anyone staying in a Nettle Bay villa. The calm waters of the Caribbean gently lap the beach, which stretches for as far as the eye can see, forming a perfect white barrier between the turquoise waters of the sea and the lush green palms that mark the land. A Nettle Bay villa is one of those rare places that you can have an absolutely unforgettable holiday doing absolutely nothing!

However, for those who wish to enjoy a little activity, Nettle Bay is also a magnificent water sports destination. The village is home to the St Martin Acadamie de la Glisse, a water sports centre of the highest quality. Conditions in Nettle Bay mean that people flock to Nettle Bay villas for wakeboarding and kite surfing, equipment and tuition for which can be arranged at the Acadamie, whilst the wonderfully calm conditions mean that waterskiing also thrives. Scuba diving is another wonderful way to spend a day from a holiday rental property in Nettle Bay. With visibility of up to 200 feet and plentiful coral reefs teeming with life, it is wonderfully apparent why. There are over 40 dive sites in the waters around Saint Martin, all of which can be dived from trips starting in Nettle Bay. In fact, all water sports, from deep sea fishing to dolphin watching, sailing to kayaking can be happily enjoyed from a self catering Nettle Bay holiday rental.

If you manage to drag yourself from the beach and the sea, inland Saint Maarten has a huge amount for you to discover too. There is an excellent 18 hole golf course just along the coast from Nettle Bay in Mullet Bay, and anyone who enjoys walking, horse riding or 4x4 tours will be fantastically catered for, as there are plentiful trails through the unspoilt countryside, along the coast and through the coastal part of the marine reserve.

Places to visit on holiday in Nettle Bay, Saint Martin

Simpson Bay, which lies in the Dutch half of the island, as opposed to Nettle Bay on the French side, is a sensational beach, almost deserted for much of the year and over a mile long. There are no huge hotels, water sports centres or vendors selling refreshments, so if you would like a day on a completely deserted beach, the short trip to Simpson Bay from a Nettle Bay property is well worth it.

Weather in Nettle Bay, Saint Martin

Saint Martin has a magnificent Caribbean year round climate. With no specific rainy season, and daily temperatures reaching between 25 and 31˚C daily throughout the year, a Nettle Bay holiday rental provides a magnificent escape in the sun at any time. The sea remains easily warm enough to swim in year round too, with water temperatures remaining between 20 and 22˚C year round. Hurricanes are rare, but are more likely in early September.

Travel to Nettle Bay, Saint Martin

Saint Martin’s Princess Juliana Airport (SXM) is one of the busiest in the Caribbean. Although there are no direct flights to Saint Martin from the UK, there are a great range arriving from European airports including Paris and Amsterdam, provided by Air France and KLM.
