Cupecoy Beach is another unspoiled
landscape with pure white sand, sandstone cliffs, and
shoreline caves as a setting. The surf can be strong,
but the wind is blocked by the rocks. Lying near the
border with St. Martin, its dress code is influenced
by that of the French beaches: clothing is optional.
Cupecoy- St maarten
Unlike Orient beach which is on the
windward side of the island, Cupecoy is on the lee side.
A great place to spend the day if the easterly wind
is blowing hard and making Orient beach an uncomfortable
place to be. It can be a quite place during the "summer"
months when these images where taken.
St. Maarten is a vacation of a lifetime
and once you visit the island, you will want to return.
It is truly an island in the sun where you can relax
and enjoy the white sand beaches, turquoise water, restaurants
of every description, gambling casinos and calypso music.
St maarten - Surf
This picture-postcard beach is lined
with sandstone cliffs and caves. The surf is sometimes
strong, but the wind is blocked by the rocks. The far
end is clothing optional. Depending on the tides the
beach shrinks at certain times of the year. .
