If you want a calm beach this is it. Not a wavy beach! There are restaurants on the beach. Also activities available.

We visited Kim Sha beach for the activities. They have jet packing there at Body Jet Extreme, which is a blast. It turns out the beach was pretty great as well. It was our second favorite beach on the island.

It was clean and had more of a family feel. As a bay, it has no waves, of course, but there is a nice bar, Buccaneer Beach Bar which had solid food and was not over-the-top expensive.

It felt safer there than other beaches around the island. It was the only beach my children (8 & 10) actually made friends.

A nice surprise and a fun afternoon.

We went to at least 10 beaches in St. Maarten. Kim Sha was our favorite. Super clean, of course warm water, great for walking, swimming or just cooling off after a hot day shopping! Plenty to do with kayaks, paddle boards, wind surfers, but the best part was that it wasn't crowded! Hoping we find it that way when we return!

There are several nice restaurants around Kim Sha beach, however the beach itself has deteriorated over the past years.
My suggestion is if you have a limited amount of time on St. Maarten and you're only going to Kim Sha for the 'St. Maarten beach experience', visit other beaches. You won't miss out if you do not swim at Kim Sha Beach...

Buccaneer Beach Bar right there..lovely little beach with parking on site. Rent chairs and umbrellas for 15-20 a set up. Had a great burger there. Minutes from our resort and enjoyed a great day!
