This crescent-shaped swath on the island's Caribbean side overlooks neighboring St. Maarten. With over 2 miles of sand, it's a prime spot for a nice, long stroll. A few resorts, including CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa, line the shore, but the beach never feels overly crowded. Plan a visit to Dune Preserve, the restaurant owned by musician Bankie Banx. The eclectic hangout is made from shipwrecked boats, driftwood, and coconut trees, and it features live music most nights, with Banx himself performing. The Preserve is also the host of the annual Moonsplash music festival, an island staple since 1991.
