Fishing Boat

St. Maarten/St. Martin offers beautiful beaches with interesting and varied snorkeling. Often our customers ask us where they can find the nicest snorkel spots around St Maarten/ St Martin. To make things easier for every one we have written a small guide with 12 nice snorkel spots around St Maarten/ St Martin.

Every snorkel spot has a star rating to see how nice a spot is. The snorkel rating next to the description tells you which level of swimming skills is advised. The guide also gives info on what you can expect under water, whether there are any facilities available on the beach and includes safety tips.

Most of the sites in the guide can be reached by car, one needs a small hike and a few can only be reached by boat.

If you’d like to Book a Snorkel Trip to the small and uninhabited islands around St Maarten of Tintamarre, Pinel and Creole Rock, or to Prickly Pear Cays off neighbouring Anguilla for example, check out our suggestions under Snorkel Trips.
