Dany's is an institution on the island and he really needs to be front and centre on any tourists' list of to do's. Full service provided with chairs and drinks on the beach as well as plates of BBQ chicken and ribs - possibly the best I have ever eaten. He has a loyal following of tourists (the Lemon Drops...

If your looking for a busy beach, with lots of pretty people and many option to dine, go elsewhere.. If your not a prude and looking for your own semi private beach, perfect views, unreal sunsets and the best ribs and chicken on the island, this is the place for you! Hands down our favorite spot on the island! Dany... More

Many are right that Dany operates out of a tent. But this is a blessing. Cupecoy Beach is a natural location which Dany overseas. He'll provide chairs, umbrellas, and drinks or all kinds. On a perfect private beach like Cupecoy, its good to have a friendly and knowledgable guy like Dany on patrol, providing everything you need.

If you go to the this beach stop by and buy a drink or some food from Dany's. He is a great guy and cares about his beach and his customers. He will watch your car, make you lunch, supply you with drinks, or even a beach chair or umbrella for a small fee.

After numerous visits to St. Martin and several stays at condos on Cupecoy Beach, we knew how to find Dany's. There are only two small signs near main road. To get to the beach, one has to brave the short, dirt, rutted road to its end. Although the rest of Cupecoy (we no longer stay there) has grown into a... More

Dany's is a tent, with a cooler and a grill. Then you step down the steps to the small beach where a few (no doubt) European folks in the 50s-60s are standing around enjoying the day and each other's company completely naked. And did I mention the long dirt path barely marked to find this beach?....the path with fire ants... More

Beautiful beach and make sure to stop and see Dany. I read some other complaining visitor here and yes...this is not Orient Beach. If you want comfy chairs and hoards of people - go to Orient. If you want to experience St. Maarten and enjoy some space around you - Cupecoy is a great place. Yes, it is clothing optional... More

Not at all impressed. Seas rough. Not a wide selection of food. Chicken & ribs. Only beer. Soda. Rum punch. If u want to enjoy clothing optional GO TO ORIENT!!! Beach chairs old & nasty. Better to lay on the sand or bring ur own as I did.
