Kim Sha is a well-protected beach on the Dutch side, directly adjacent to the Dutch Bridge in Simpson Bay. Wide and flat from Royal Palm Beach Club to the Atrium Beach Resort and further to Buccaneer’s Beach Bar and the Simpson Bay Resorts at the bottom of Pelican Key, Kim Sha Beach is crowned by sherbet sunsets and is the perfect place for a potent happy hour or an open-air massage!
A small reef protects the beach providing swimmers and boats with a very calm surf; ideal for children and families with shallows that stretch out quite far. There is a nice playground right on the beach for the kiddies as well. Many yachts use the bay as an anchorage and provide an attractive foreground for it’s jaw dropping sunsets.
Conveniently close to most of the Simpson Bay action (resorts, restaurants, nightclubs and casinos), Kim Sha is one of the more central beaches on the island. lounges and umbrellas can be rented and water sports toys are available as well. Kim Sha days melt away to sultry Kim Sha nights with more consistent than occasional concerts and beach parties.
A venue for many an outdoor concert including the culmination concert for Heineken Regatta (February 28th through March 3rd this year) as well as ample parking for all surrounding neighborhood locals, this is the beach for live entertainment.
Kim Sha homes amazing eateries like La Bamba Beach Bar and Buccaneer Beach Bar as well as the Greenhouse Restaurant in between the two, conveniently located underneath the Atrium resort directly on the beach. The Atrium boasts a clean fresh water pool as well, directly next to the Greenhouse Restaurant.
Lounge chairs and umbrellas to outdoor movies to excursion and dive boats, Kim Sha Beach is located behind the "the bridge" and outside the lagoon, making it a perfect area for excursion and dive boats to start their trips as well as Ocean Explorers Dive Center, a certified PADI dive shop located directly in the middle and directly adjacent to La Bamba.
Stunning and breathtaking sunsets viewable from the East side of the beach, with a remarkable and exceptional view of the bay and the famous St. Maarten Sunset.
