Saint Martin refers to the north half of the island, which is French, and Sint Maarten refers to the Dutch south half of the island. They are considered completely separate.
Guana Bay is found in the south half of the island, in the Dutch Sint Maarten.
The main airport on the island, Princess Juliana International, is located west of Guana Bay on the south side of the island, in Sint Maarten. The journey time between the two takes just over twenty minutes in clear traffic.
Yes, within minutes of Guana Bay, you will find the small supermarket Mr K Grocery, which is perfect for picking up little bits and pieces you may have forgotten. A little further away, close to Bobby’s marina, you will find the slightly larger Fairway Mark It, and on the other side of Great Salt Pond, you will find a Carrefour Market SXM which is perfect for larger grocery shops.
Yes, there is a beautiful stretch of white-gold sand found in Guana Bay itself, called Guana Bay Beach. Complete with glistening, choppy waters, it is the perfect place to spend an afternoon catching some waves. Also nearby you will find Dawn Beach and Great Bay Beach.
When you stay at Guana Bay, we highly recommend hiring a car so you can visit the nearby restaurants at your convenience. Our favorite place to visit for dinner if you are staying in Guana Bay, is the nearby area around Great Bay Beach. Utterly jam-packed with restaurants and beach bars, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Our recommended venues include the relaxed vibes of Kalua Beach Bar & Restaurant, the popular Greenhouse, the Asian Fusion restaurant Aziana complete with incredible decor, the highly rated The French Touch restaurant, and the sophisticated Ocean Lounge @ Holland House. Needless to say, this is just the tip of the iceberg, and you could spend a wonderful evening strolling along the beach and discovering what takes your fancy.
The wonderful thing about the island of Saint Martin, is that for such a small destination, there truly is an incredible amount to do. If its tropical beaches you’re looking for, then they are scattered about the island in abundance, both in the south and north. Some of our favorite include the nearby Great Bay Beach, and the very popular Cupecoy Beach and Orient Beach. For a truly unforgettable seaside experience, however, be sure to pay a visit to the famous Maho Beach, where planes coming in to land at the Princess Juliana Airport pretty much skim the sand!
To fill up your vacation days, whether you’re traveling as a couple or with little ones, there is more than you can fit into one trip. For culture, be sure to check out Fort Amsterdam and explore the centuries-old ruins. To make even more out of the coastline, visit the Seaside Nature Park to enjoy snorkeling, scuba diving, and even horseback riding, and when its time to really tire the kids out, pay a visit to Rainforest Adventures.
