Le Galion Beach Tours

While it might not be the flashiest—or even the largest—of St. Martin’s many beaches, Le Galion Beach is undoubtedly the island’s family-friendliest. Also known as “Coconut Grove,” “L’Embouchure,” and “Baby Beach,” Le Galion makes a perfect day at the beach for visitors traveling with young children. For one thing, the turquoise waters are exceptionally shallow—and you can literally wade out 300 feet and still be in waist deep water. There also aren’t many rocks or hazards located anywhere inside of the bay, and much of the sea floor is covered in a bed of gently waving seaweed. Perhaps most importantly, the north end of the bay is often protected from the consistent easterly tradewinds, which also make the offshore reef so popular with surfers and kiteboarders. While not as happening as Orient Bay, there are still a couple of beachfront restaurants with bathroom facilities and drinks, as well as a number of rental shops for whatever board you might need. This is also the only beach on the French side where nude sunbathing is discouraged, and is a safe, sunny, and simple option for a family day at the beach.

Practical Info

Le Galion Beach is located approximately 3.5 miles from the international airport in Grand Case, and is 1.5 miles south of popular Orient Beach. Mornings offer the calmest conditions, and surfing is accessible via a boat shuttle that leaves from inside the bay.
