Divi Little Bay Beach Resort Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Divi Little Bay Beach Resort 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.
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.

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.
