Point Pirouette in the Dutch Lowlands
is located in southwestern St. Maarten, between Simpson Bay Lagoon, Mullet Bay Golf Course, and Maho. The only privately owned peninsula in St. Maarten, Pt. Pirouette is an exclusive gated community. Enjoy peace and quiet overlooking the largest lagoon in the Caribbean, while the classic green peaks and valleys of the St. Maarten landscape sprawl across the distance.
At your backdoor, enjoy St. Maarten’s only golf course, an 18-hole course designed by Joseph Lee in 1970, with both ocean and lagoon adjacent holes. Carts and clubs are available for rent on site for your convenience in this picturesque setting.
To the south, St. Maarten’s entertainment capital, Maho, leaves nothing to be desired. From shopping, to fine dining, bars, clubs, shows, cabaret and live piano, a spa, casino, pharmacy, grocery store, and more, its impossible to want more. However, if it is more that you desire, head west to Cupecoy for a taste of the Gourmet Village, where more than 8 restaurants await you surrounding the Atlantis Casino.

Pt. Pirouette is also convenient to the beaches of Cupecoy and Maho, as well as the picturesque Mullet Bay Beach.Mullet Bay is an island favorite, still untainted by the presence of any resort. Offering a large stretching curve of white sand, with slow rolling curls of waves, and a classic backdrop of palm and seagrape trees, Mullet Bay is surely one of the prettiest beaches on St. Maarten. Situated conveniently between the trendy and bustling hotspots of Cupecoy and Maho, Mullet bay offers a natural reprise from all the cares of life. The water, always the most brilliant turquoise blue, ranges from calm, especially on the southern end of the beach, to decent surf, attracting both surfers and bathers alike. Mullet is known for its pristine clear water and immaculate white sand.
At the south end of the beach, Rosie’s Rib Shack offers fire grilled food, cold and frozen drinks, and beach chairs all day. On the weekends, there are often parties with live music and volleyball, while weekdays welcome in a more tranquil vibe. For those less inclined to the social scene, a walk over to the northern end of the beach changes the setting for a private, quiet experience. Climb to the top of the bluffs for some sun bathing or a fantastic sunset view.
