The Cupecoy Beach

New Haven, CT (PressExposure) May 30, 2009 -- One of the main attractions in Sint Maarten [] is the Cupecoy beach, a clothing optional beach located at the southwest corner. It is lined with beautiful rock formations and caves, a sure lure to the adventurous in spirit. For a couple of years now, Cupecoy has become ever more popular to naturists thanks to its varying landscapes and the clean blue seas.

For those who are planning to go swimming, just a word of caution. Cupecoy beach has rough waters especially during the hurricane season, so don’t just take a dip without reading the weather advisory. The beach is a haven for surfers with the surf usually having 2-3 swells.

At cupecoy beach you will see the 10 to 20 feet high golden sandstone cliff, a rich coral sand carpet which is very popular in this area of Sint Maarten. If you are planning to stay in the beach for a long time and you’re coming from far in the island, make sure you bring food with you because there are no restaurants or bars in Cupecoy beach, although there’s a local guy selling fresh soda and beer who passes by the area from time to time. Chairs and umbrellas are available and if you want to barbeque, facilities are available for use.

One of the most popular bars in the cupecoy [] area is the Cliffhanger Bar which was built into the caves above the beach. If you are looking for a magnificent view of the sunset, this is the perfect spot. Also, Cupecoy beach faces southwest and gives a splendid view of the sun as it sets amidst the surf. If you are living far from Cupecoy, and you use your own car, then there’s a parking area you can use. From there, the beach is just a few minutes’ walk.

Looking for a Vacation Condo [] that’s near the beach? Well, the perfect choice is Porto Cupecoy, which is three minutes away. The great thing about Porto Cupecoy is you are near everything – shops and boutiques, bars and restaurants, and even a medical clinic and pharmacy! Also, the French/Dutch border is within reach.
