Pinel Island

On the north coast of St Martin are the tiny hamlets of Anse Marcel and Cul-de-Sac, from which operate boats ferrying passengers on a two-minute hop to the uninhabited offshore islet of Pinel Island. Anse Marcel features some large hotels, a marina and a sandy beach, while Cul-de-Sac boasts St Martin's mayoral residence. Pinel Island is pristine and offers calm waters that attract familes for swimming and bathing, and excellent snorkelling opportunities.
