“Nice but windy today”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2013

Have checked out many other beaches in St. MArtin, Tahoma was nice and friendly. Good food and no annoying people selling stuff. Very chill.

“Great atmosphere, service is non-existent.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2013

The atmosphere is super laid back, it's a small beach area. Rich but quiet is the feeling. I guess.

There are beach "mattresses" instead of chairs. The mattress has an incline for your head. It's fun to lay on the beach and fall asleep there.

If you want to find real French attitude, go here. It's cute at first, and then it's annoying. The prices are stupid expensive, and it isn't food that you will want to remember.

All said and done, this is actually my favorite beach. It has a very "tao" atmosphere (complete with sitting buddha), but the service and the people running the place are....odd.

I love that I can swim in Simpson Bay here, and watch the take-offs and landings from the side instead of from the back as at Sunset Beach.

“Our favourite beach in Sint Maarten”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013

For the price of a drink, you can find free umbrellas & beach chairs. The service by the staff of the Tahoma Beach Bar is outstanding & nothing is too much for them. The food is excellent & one salad (Thai or Goat Cheese with figs) at $18 is enough for two to share. Plenty of other good choices. The beach is really nice although the waves (4 foot today) may be a little big at times for small children. Tahoma Beach is not so well know & is off the cruise ship list!
