Not only do we have Dawn Beach, with its beautiful turquoise water within walking distance, guests can also enjoy several other beaches just a short drive away; Le Galeon, Maho, Guana Bay and Orient Beach which is famous for its water sports and beachfront restaurants. Pinel Island is a ten minute ferry ride from French Cul-de-Sac and there are day cruises to Anguilla, St. Barths and Saba.
The island is renowned for its European influence from both its Dutch and French ancestry. There is an international flavor to the island shown by the shops, markets and restaurants which flourish here. Nearby is Oyster Pond which is home to a picturesque marina with local restaurants and bars. The Dutch capital of Philipsburg is just a fifteen minute drive away with its boardwalk, restaurants and shopping on Front Street. The gourmet capital of the Caribbean, Grand Case and the French capital, Marigot are also easily accessible.
