Tagged: , , , , , , , , , ,

Karakter Beach Bar, located on Simpson Bay in St. Maarten, is most well known for the bus that makes up its bar and kitchen. When we first visited Karakter, it was at night, so we couldn’t enjoy the scenery as much as we would have liked. To rectify the situation, we came back the next day, grabbed a table by the beach, worked our way through a couple ‘ti punches and decided to set the GoPro down and let it do its thing....

I knew I had to get a GoPro video camera for our upcoming trip to St. Martin/St. Maarten if for just one thing – to head over to Sunset Bar and Grill, gain some liquid courage and then head down Maho Beach to record the take offs and landings at Princess Juliana airport, known popularly by its airport code SXM.

The beach at Friar’s Bay doesn’t often get mentioned when discussing the beaches of St. Martin. This blog has yet to mention it but when you’re going up against beaches such as Orient Bay, Great Bay, Maho and Simpson Bay, sometimes you just need to assert yourself and scream “Hey, don’t forget about us over here!” The beach at Friar’s Bay is described by Sint-maarten.net as a “pretty,...
