It is the nearest beach to the port, and a very good one. There are no restrictions from the Divi resort management, you can use some of the facilities, including restrooms and showers. Try to get there early or you might be left without umbrella or beach chair if a season is high. The cab ride is 10 min, and there are plenty of them to get you back.The water is incredible: calm, warm, blue-to-green colored. Take a walk around the property and don't miss the fort on the peninsula. The view from there is breathtaking. You can see both Great and Little bays, the port, ships, birds flying high above, clouds... It creates such a nice feeling that makes you forget about anything else. There are benches on all edges of the hill to sit, relax, and watch. Don't pay attention to the management's sign that prohibits going up hill without management's consent. It's just to limit their liability. The beach bar is good, with friendly folks and nice music. Enjoy your day!

This was our favorite beach and we made it to about 10-12 beaches. It was not crowded, the sand was soft, not full of shells, wonderful snorkeling around the penisula, bathroom facilities and a bar were close by, water activities on site.

Been going to Little Bay for over 20 years. I can go to other beaches in St. Maarten, but for two weeks every year we spent our time on the beach to relax, swim, read and watch the waves and view. if you are looking for lot's of excitement, you'll need another St. Maarten beach/bay.

If you stay at DIVI Little Bay, the beach is great and a prime spot for snorkeling. There are 3 sunken attractions: submarine, sailboat and helicopter, right off shore. In addition, the beach has chairs, tables and umbrellas available at no charge to guests. You will also find bars, shops and restaurants nearby in the resort.

If you like sun, sand and clear water, its great!
