Dinner: try mati beach and les boucaniers next door. We always go to Rare and Temptation in Cupocoy for dinner. Drinks: can't tell you

Nettle Bay is closest to Marigot, Cupocoy, Mullet Bay. But it is a bit far from Orient Bay, Grand Case (not so much in terms of distance but in terms of traffic). We rarely go there because of it. Unless you do this over the week-end.

We drive thru Nettle Bay to get to Orient frequently and never really find any traffic. About 20 minutes from Cupecoy.

We wonder about the quietness of Nettle Bay. Our other option we are considering is the Esmeralda on Orient Bay. We do not like crowds, want peace and quiet, and a clean beautiful beach. Is Orient Beach more of a circus atmosphere? any thoughts?

Nettle Bay is a quiet area. We have stayed in the area on more than one visit. The beach is not to our liking and we generally go over to one of the more well know beaches, Plum, Red, Long or Mullet, Friar's, Orient.

There are some nice restaurants in the area as well as hotels, and a shopping area with a small but well stocked market..

Yes indeed. Also they just opened "le shore" near The Nettle Bay Beach Club which Offers a great alternative to the evening activities.

We are here now. It is beautiful. We feel very safe. It is very french, but everyone is friendly. There are a couple small beaches, if you want. The pool is nice.

If this is the gated community located opposite the Mercure Hotel then this is the run-down on the beach.

First, there are occasional small slivers of glass from broken bottles, which is a shame because they are small and difficult to clean up, although I have done my bit. The community is divided into four semi-circular groups of villas all facing the water, each with its own swimming pool and beach opposite. I will call the four A through C, with A being the beach farthest from Marigot. A and B have the best water entry and C and D have very low flat rocks and smooth coral from the water mark out to about 20m. My guess is that you would need some plastic beach shoes if you don't want to walk the 100m to A or B.

The pools are one of the better maintained features of the resort, but still need some TLC. Fairly typical of the Caribbean and my guess is that the owners are minimising the maintenance fees!
