You can do everything at Oyster Pond ! French and Dutch sides meet and the marina there takes you right to St. Barths in 30 minutes too.

Love sitting at the end of captain olivers, watching the entrance to the lagoon, yachts coming and going, nice breeze fanning the sunset. Very cool.

So much in a small area. The pond has really grown up over the years. It has many great places to eat and a nice beach. The beach on the other side of the pond is Dawn Beach and it is beautiful with beach service available including food, drink, umbrellas and chairs. At times there can be seaweed on the... More

Oyster Pond is only 5 minutes away from the Westin. Try Big Fish, and Mr. Busby's. Only a couple minutes from there is Mammas Pizza, and this is a have to dinner

Staff were warm and welcoming. Cuisine extraordinary and views spectacular. Take the ferry to Anguilla for beaches on end and a great day trip. Also, we could see St.... More

Oyster Bay is set on a small peninsular between the Marina and the Atlantic Ocean. It is situated on the Dutch side but the French border is a short walk away.

We have been to Oyster Bay several times and always enjoy it. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The suites are clean and comfortable. We make use of the kitchenette for breakfasts and most dinners, eating out for lunch and a few evenings. We enjoy the nearby beach as the water is much calmer than other beaches. The on... More

Super restaurants. Ate at the Big Fish, Mr. Busbys/Daniels, and Canoa. All three had great food. Seafood at Canoa and Big Fish, pizza at Mr. Busby's.

Oyster pond marina needs a lot of safety work! There is a government battle between Dutch and French that is stopping work. It is really a shame as it is such a nice location.
