We are going to be staying at the Sonesta Great Bay, which will be our first time in St. Maarten. I have been reading about the beaches and was hoping to get some information on which may be the best beach maybe not crowded. When we stayed in Bermuda we found a great little beach with lots of small alcoves and privacy. It was great just feeling like we were the only ones there so i am looking for something like that in St. Maarten. Also is it worth taking the taxi to St Bart/Anguilla? Maybe some general information from those that have been there?? Any help would certainly be appreciated. We are going to be there early October so will end of season be an issue for us?
