The only difficult thing about St. Martin’s is deciding which beach to visit, as its whole coastline is fringed with spectacular white sands and crystal-clear water. Great Bay on the north coast is a long, wild stretch of sand that was recently voted the Best Beach in Britain. A family favourite is dune-backed Lawrence’s Bay which stretches between Lower Town and Higher Town, its sands gently enter the shallows of St Martin’s Flats making it perfect for a swim. For rock pooling the granite strands of Pernagie Point at the north tip of the island has large pools, as does Lawrence Bay in the south, where you’ll find anything from Sea slugs, Squat lobsters and Pipe fish to Strawberry Anemones, Starfish, Clingfish and Crabs.
