This is a very hidden spot and may not be found even if given directions. It is on the French Side of St. Marten near the north eastern edge. In 2006, there were houses being built and a nice dirt/paved road going behind the houses towards the island's garbage dump. From there, you must park your car and hike out along a trail from the beach all the way out to the break. Easy to follow during the day. Other ways to get out are by boat - not sure if you can pay someone to get out there. You will know the spot when you come to a surfer's hut (some wooden piles and a top to keep the sun out).

Atmosphere

If you find yourself in St. Marten with a surfboard in tow, definitely go to this spot. There is only on surf shop, which I luckily found. Explore the island, head up to the north, and hike out for the day. There is nothing like surfing with some friendly locals and catching some warm water waves. Ripping good time! Most people don't think that this island has anything other than women and booze, but the surf is a hit!

General

If I had the chance to live on the beach, this is the place I would do it! You can see the untouched beauty of the island in the distance and feel the warm Caribbean Sun throughout the surf session. What else can be better?
