Where to paddle board ?
Located at the very North of the French side of St Martin, about less than a kilometer away from the coast, Pinel is a separate island from St Maarten; with Little Key island, it creates a very calm bay where it’s pure bliss to paddle. Basically, the profile of Cul de Sac bay is very similar to a lake with this “islands district” that are well positioned on the Caribbean Sea. Thank you Mother Nature!
And its special location makes it THE top spot for paddle boarding in St Maarten, accessible for everybody and in many different ways!
