Edit Spot

Just do it!

Local favorite! Definitely recommend it if you visit the island and have your board with you. There is only one surf shop on the island and they were friendly enough to show me the spot. Use windguru.com to determine the swell and wind direction - makes for a better experience. Just sitting in the water in the tropical surroundings was enough for me to enjoy!

Additional Info:
For those who say there isn't surfing in St. Martin, they are wrong. This is a hidden but excellent spot if you are looking for some freedom from the Puerto Rican crowds. Take a small jumper plane to the island and rent a car. Hit the north side of the island, ask for directions to the dump, and the surfers are friendly enough to point you in the right direction if you have made it this far.


This spot is on the French Side of Saint Martin, all the way to the north. You have to take a car from Green Cay up to the north on the outer road until you come to a garbage dump site. You will travel through some construction on your way there and the dump site is where you park. There will be a trail leading from the north side of the beach out along a point and then west to the surf spot. Take the trail for about 15 to 20 minutes until you see the waves breaking to your right. There should be a surf shack on the beach made of sticks, 2x4s, and other odds and ends. Great hidden spot with awesome view!
