Sheltered from the interior of the island by several resort hotels, Dawn Beach is uncrowded. The beach gets its name from the breathtaking sunrise views. Dawn Beach beach house residents enjoy magnificent sunrises over the Atlantic, as the beach has an unobstructed line of sight to Tintamarre Island and Saint Barth. The waves at Dawn Beach are usually strong, so you will be treated to spectacular breaking waves rolling into shore. This provides a unique combination of serenity and turmoil in the scenery that visitors to Dawn Beach find enchanting.
In a Dawn Beach beach house you'll be the first on the island to experience the fresh air blown in from the Atlantic Ocean on the East Wind. The undercurrents are often too strong for leisure swimming, but the privacy of the beach and the quality of the sand make it a perfect place to sunbathe, build sandcastles, and just enjoy a day at the beach. North of the beach you'll find Captain Alan's Boat Charters, which offers guided snorkeling tours and boat trips.
Captain Alan's experienced crew will lead you to the best places to spot sea turtles and a variety of tropical fish.
While staying in a Dawn Beach beach house means that you will have a full kitchen in which to do your own cooking, the towns surrounding Dawn Beach offer a variety of delicious cuisine that you won't want to miss sampling. Big Fish Seafood Grill is just north of the beach and serves up local seafood in a cozy and casual atmosphere. If you head over the border into the Saint Martin side of Oyster Pond, you can grab a slice at Mama's Pizza, a neighborhood favorite eatery serving pizza and pasta. Oyster Pond is also home to BZH Creperie, which serves sweet or savory crepes.
