Make a Holiday Rental Studio in Simpson Bay, Sint Maarten Your Home Away From Home

Simpson Bay is an area that lies on the Dutch side of the island of St. Martin (known as Sint Maarten on the Dutch side!). It lies in the west of the island, separating the crystal clear water of the sea from the spectacular hills inland. Simpson Bay has its own lagoon which dominates the western side of the island and is one of the largest landlocked bodies of water in the Caribbean. All of this and more makes a Simpson Bay rental studio the perfect choice for a watery getaway.

Other activities that are available at Simpson Bay include tennis, cycling, hiking, bird watching and golf. With such clear water and lush green hills to the rear of the area, Simpson Bay is the perfect place on Sint Maarten to sit and paint or take photographs.

Places to Visit on Holiday to Simpson Bay, Sint Maarten

No visit to the Dutch side of Sint Maarten would be complete without a visit to the capital Philipsburg. The town is a narrow stretch of land surrounded by the Great Bay and Great Salt Pond offering visitors the chance to find out more about the island’s history and culture. Of the two main roads in the town, visitors will find a beautiful courthouse on Front Street which was built in 1793 and is still in use today. Also on Front Street is the Simartin Museum. Although small in stature it holds many displays and artefacts relevant to the previous inhabitants of the island.

To the southern end of Philipsburg are the remains of Fort Amsterdam which was built in 1631. As well as being of strategic importance in previous years it offers some fantastic views of the surrounding area and of course the beautifully translucent sea.

Weather in Simpson Bay, Sint Maarten

Whilst on a Simpson Bay holiday visitors can expect warm summers and very, very mild winters. In fact, there is little difference in daytime temperatures during the summer and winter months. The average daytime temperature during the summer is 28°C, which is still comfortable enough to venture out from the rental studio. The average daytime temperature in winter is 23°C, although it can become quite cool in the evenings. There is no specific “rainy season” at Simpson Bay although it is advisable to bear in mind that the island can experience hurricanes between July and November.
