Off the coast of the dual nation island of St. Maarten/St. Martin is one of the best kept secrets of the Caribbean.
Pinel Island is a short ferry ride away from the french side of the island. Hourly ferry service departs from Cul de Sac. Located in Orient Bay, Pinel Island is the perfect day trip excursion. Its rustic set-up includes just three small restaurants, endless white sand beaches and the most breathe-taking cool blue Caribbean waters.
Its remote location and eco-sensitive set-up does not neglect on services or activity offerings. Each restaurant provides beach chairs and umbrellas for rental accompanied by a personalized food service experience. Island activities include souvenir shopping along with an amazing opportunity to view Pinel Island water life with the on-site eco-snorkeling experience.
When planning your next trip to St. Maarten/St. Martin be sure to plan a day trip to Pinel Island.
