This is everything you expect in a real beach restaurant: Right near the water's edge, tables on the white sand all under cover from the sun, friendly staff. We ate a lunch that was very reasonably priced. Choices: Tuna baguette (good), chicken baguette (beyond delicious), and a burger (very tasty), but would love to come back to try the fish... More

Spent a day with Pat at his restaurant and sailboarding rental back in 2011 on "St. Martin Day" of our cruise. The lovely wife chilled with a fruity drink while I tried my hand at sailboarding and the kids played in the sand. We all had a very nice time. Not sure what the rest of our fellow cruise passengers... More

We've spent a whole day at the Tropical Wave at Le Galion beach. the bay is perfect for families with young children as the waters are calm and shallow. The food is good quality, the menu is not that long but is perfect for a lunch on the beach. Its also possible to rent kayaks, surfs, paddle boats

We wandered our way to many beaches and lounge chairs on our visit and found this hidden place. We rented a few chairs and an umbrella, a sailboard and a goggle and snorkel. The owner, Pat, gave us basic instructions, just because he wants to. It's a quiet shallow bay with a steady breeze and a sea grass bottom, to... More

Our favorite beach on the island. Awesome food at reasonable prices. Gourmet at the beach! Ate three times. Mahi-Mahi, Red Snapper and the burrito. Not your typical beach shack!
