Simpson Bay?

Simpson Bay?

I will have one day in St. Martin and coming from a cruise ship. I was wondering if anyone knows if Flamingo Beach Resort rents chairs and umbrellas to the public? Any reviews on this beach?

I was thinking Simpson Bay because it is on the Caribbean side and might be calmer (there will be two older people in the group). Is this beach rocky or have any drop offs?

What would the price of a taxi be from the pier to the resort for three people?

How far is Marigot from the resort and what would be a taxi ride be for three people?

I do not believe you will find a resort who will rent to the public. Try going to Karakter on Simpson Bay Beach. http://www.karakterbeach.com/

You can find taxi rates here:

Karakter is a good suggestion. Another beach with very calm water is Pinel Island, though that involves taking a 5 minute water taxi ride to get to.
