Secluded sands on Cupecoy Beach

Clothing-optional at points and indelibly quiet, Cupecoy Beach hides beneath a golden wall of sandstone as the coast wiggles southwards into the Dutch corner of Sint Maarten. The sand is a light, yellow-white hue, washed over by 2-foot swells that froth their whitewash into secret coves and inlets along its whole length. These days, swish and private Cupecoy Beach vacation rentals shoulder above the cliffs, offering sea views and walking access to the Caribbean for those morning and evening swims. To spice things up, there's a clutch of neon-flashing casinos and chic beach clubs at its south-eastern end.

Things to do

Try your luck in Cupecoy Beach

The south-eastern end of Cupecoy Beach is where the real life is, far away from the private, cliff-hidden coves of the clothing optional section of sands. Head there to find the lively casinos and gaming hall that Sint Maarten is famous for. There are the bright lights of Sonesta Maho and the poker tables of Casino Royale, classic Starz City and underwater-themed Atlantis World. Once Lady Luck's paid a visit, you can hit the sands of Maho Beach to watch airplanes touching down in the Princess Juliana Airport, or hit a round of 18 in the nearby golf courses.


Life on the sands of Cupecoy Beach

Book Cupecoy Beach vacation rentals to gaze out across the turquoise blue of the Caribbean Sea from your bedroom, enjoying walking access to one of the most celebrated sand stretches on the island of Sint Maarten. Just a hop, skip and a jump down the cliff steps and you can be sunbathing and splashing in the light waves. Beach bars rumble and slosh with chatter and rum punches there, too, offering a prime place to watch the scintillating sunsets glow red and yellow across the bay. It's all about cranking up the relaxation.


Cool nights and warm days on Cupecoy Beach

There are plenty of reasons why the period from December to March is seen as the top time to check in to those Cupecoy Beach vacation rentals. For starters, there's the temperature, which tends to be milder than the scorching summer. Then there's the trade winds, which are pleasant in the balmy evenings. Most of all, though, it's about the rain. All of Sint Maarten can get a little wet in the summer months between May and September, with sporadic storms and downpours. It's not the perfect beach weather you're likely looking for.
