If you're looking for a beach that's quiet but not totally secluded, Cupecoy is a good choice. Its white sands are backed by low sandstone cliffs that have been eroded in such a way that they provide a run of small semiprivate coves.

This little gem of a beach was just outside The Cliffs resort, where our family stayed for one week. The water was a beautiful bluish-green color and there was a reef about 20 feet off the shore where you could snorkel. The water had pleasant...More

Perhaps the best place to catch a sunset on Saint-Martin, F.W.I.... the watcher crashing against the bluffs and the sun setting to the West

Once again we almost lived on this beach and just wouldn't have it any other way. The sand is always shifting here and the cliffs are eroding with the wave action but the casual relaxed atmosphere at the beach is really fun. My negative comments...More

Cupecoy is composed of different beach coves some larger than others. Clothing is optional. To the right when you entrance is the beach where mostly straight people gather. To the left is more gay. But everyone is welcome to any cove and the people straight...More

It looked like a lovely beach but enjoyed by nude sun bathers and unsavory behavior--one side is a gay gathering place. We did not feel unsafe as much as unwelcome to sunbathe here being clothed. There are no beach restaurants.

There are still steps to all parts of this beach but the sand is variable since the hurricane in the early 90's. It tends to move up and down the beach quite dramatically. It is still very much worth a visit. Dany is still... More
