Quick Summary

Happy Bay is a distinct beach, positioned between two mountains, that has been delighting swimmers, beach goers and nudists for centuries. Within the island of St. Martin, no beach can match the visuals of this bay with its enchanting energy that lures people in. The pale, delicate sand and the crystal clear waters creates the haven that gives Happy Bay its esteemed title. Behind the beach is an array of vegetation and wildlife that surrounds the sandy stretch, sheltering from the wind while also allowing a mere, gentle breeze to rustle through the trees. This intimate, authentic beach is perfect for individuals in search of utopia. 

Location

Based on the north-western shore of St. Martin (French Side), Happy Bay neighbors culinary capital, Grand Case and casual, family-oriented Friar’s Bay. Due to its secluded position, visitors wishing to go to Happy Bay must hike a short 10-15 minute walk from Friar’s Bay. The most accessible way is by driving to Friar’s Bay and walking to the right until an earthy path is revealed. The beautiful hike is accompanied with orange arrows that direct the course of travel towards the beach. Most individuals should be perfect with flip flops, towels and perhaps a couple of drinks to bask in the refreshing nature of the bay; though traveling lightly is best.  The hike towards the beach is nothing short of picturesque and beach goers should take in the sights of nature and capture a few photos to remember the journey to Happy Bay! Upon arrival, the beach invites with its sparkling sand and glistening waters. A point of note, this beach is recognized for its seclusion and many people feel at one with nature, thus making Happy Bay an unofficial nude beach. Unwind with an open mind and a dive into the sea at ease with an optional bathing suit.
