Divi Little Bay Beach Tours

5 Reviews
Divi Little Bay Beach
Divi Little Bay Beach is a secluded beach just outside Philipsburg on the western peninsula of St. Martin’s Great Bay. Postcard-pretty with soft, white sand and tranquil, turquoise water, the beach is popular spot for snorkeling and other watersports such as jet skiing, paddle boats, and parasailing.

The Basics
When not sunbathing and enjoying watersports, take a short hike to Fort Amsterdam, built by the Dutch settlers in 1631, or enjoy a meal at a beachside bar or restaurant. Half-day tours leave from Divi Bay Resort or Simpson Bay Resort and may include scuba diving off the Dutch side among moray eels, sea turtles, and stingrays. There’s a shallow wreck where divers can plunge 30 feet (9 meters) to a deliberately sunken submarine and helicopter. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Divi Little Bay Beach has something to offer solo travelers, couples, families, and divers of all experience levels. 
  • Tours may include roundtrip hotel transfers, food and drinks, use of snorkeling and scuba equipment, towels, and guides. Check tours for specific details.
  • Remember to bring sun protection and swimwear.
  • Scuba dive tours are suitable for children aged 12 years and up; participants must be in good health and a strong swimmer to take part.

How to Get There
To access the beach, drive five minutes (or walk 25 minutes) from Philipsburg along Little Bay Road, following signs to the Divi Little Bay Beach Resort. From Princess Juliana International Airport, the drive is about 15 minutes. Parking is readily available. 

When to Get There
For the lowest hotel rates, visit St. Martin/St. Maarten in spring and fall, when rains are also less likely. The weather is pleasant year-round, however, with temperatures peaking in summer. Humpback whales can be observed from February to June.

Brown Pelicans Nests
Make time for the walk to Fort Amsterdam, perched at the end of the peninsula, where you find an area designated an Important Bird and Biodiversity Area. Here, a regionally significant colony of brown pelicans (Pelecanus occidentalis) nest along the slope just below the fort. These days, the community has about 60 pairs of birds.
