Grand Case Beach
St. Martin's gastronomic capital at night, Grand Case Beach is a pleasant "town beach" while the sun is up. You may want to take pictures of the many sailboats anchored just off its shores. Several small to midsize resorts are nestled between numerous bars, restaurants and private homes. A number of local establishments offer lunch and refreshments.
We recommend sunbathing in style, at the Grand Case Beach Club. Lounge chairs and umbrellas are provided, and for lunch, The Sunset Cafe caters to your hunger and thirst with a reasonably priced menu and an extensive wine list.
