The sea on the Caribbean side of the sand bar that forms the lagoon on St Martin can be a bit rough at times, especially when the wind is blowing, so the beach on the lagoon side offers a little respite. I love this beach because there were so many little spots to lie in the sun, or to seek shade under a palm tree in a hammock. The water was also very calm for a little cooling-off dip.
