Tahoma Beach & White Sands
Located in southwestern St. Maarten, the White Sands Beach Club is a lovely complex in residential Simpson Bay Beach. Which has just been converted into Tohoma Beach boutique hotel and restaurant with option range from two bedroom villa units to one bedroom suite units, all with stunning ocean views and private patios. Wake up to the sounds and smells of the sea and walk down the steps to your own private beach entrance, where every color of turquoise sparkles through the translucent waves.
Simpson Bay Beach is an endless arc of white sand that stretches for miles, uninterrupted by high-rise hotels and commercial hustle and bustle. The surf is usually calm in this wide and sheltered bay, as elegant sailboats and impressive yachts wait just outside the drawbridge to enter the Lagoon and its many marinas. On clear days, you can see neighboring Saba, St. Kitts, St. Eustatius, and Nevis all rising on the horizon. Karakter Beach Bar and Lounge is a great stop for a drink and a snack. For some tropical snorkeling, head just next door to the quiet Burgeaux Bay. Or for a little water sport adventure, live music, and dancing, head the opposite direction to neighboring Kim Sha beach, home of La Bamba, Buccaneer’s, and the annual Heineken Regatta Finale Party.
The town of Simpson Bay offers every amenity. From the conveniences of a gas station, grocery stores, pharmacies, doctors’ offices, post office, and internet cafes, to the entertainment offered by endless bars and restaurants, casino, night clubs, movie theater, water sports, dive shops, salons, and more. A five-minute drive leads to St. Maarten Montessori School in Cole Bay, and a ten-minute drive puts you at Learning Unlimited on Cay Hill.
