Ocean lovers and outdoors adventurists love the little island of Pinel. Located just off of the St Maarten coast, Pinel Island is a safe haven of white sand and clear water that is perfect for kayakers, stand-up paddle boarders and those who want a tranquil escape from the modern world.

On the main beach you’ll find two restaurants with lobster and conch specialties, and on the other side of the island you’ll find an ideal snorkel spot in the secluded cove protected by a barrier reef. The island is small enough to explore by foot, and if you end up on the secluded side of the island, you’ll be rewarded with great views of St Maarten and the greater Caribbean.

Practical Info

Pinel Island is just off the coast of St Maarten, so it’s easily accessible by ferry boat, kayak or paddle board.
