Were there this week, no chairs for rent but easy to find a shady spot, C/O on the right if facing the water and no weirdos in the bushes. Our favourite beach on the island!

Thanks again for all the notes - I'll assume no new construction on any of the surrounding buildings.

Last question - Danny still there daily with his ribs, chicken and punch?

When we were there we saw naked people up and down the length of the beach. I was unaware we were supposed to keep it to the right side. oops!

I don't think there is any "correct" protocol or side, depends on who gets there first!

I've noticed the middle area to be mostly textile and both ends to be non but no defined sections

There really isn't a nude vs clothed side of the beach. It's just that people tend to gravitate to one side or the other depending on their degree of comfort. The Gendarme and Families are usually on the beach on Sat & Sun, so nudity is usually frowned upon on these days.

Hi all,
We are new to the list. We have visited Happy Bay a number of times over the past several years.
I never noticed a difference between weekends and weekdays on Happy Bay. Is this something more recent?
We arrive to SXM on Sunday and can't wait!
Jim and Amy

Traditionally, a lot of locals go to the beach on Saturday and Sunday (because they are off from work...) So, be very careful about going nude on beaches other than Club O beach on the weekend.

We are thinking about Happy Bay today. Based on the latest intelligence, do we want to haul in chairs, or can we rent? Will I be able to buy lunch? Will it be crowded w local families (not that I would mind-it's their island) on a Saturday?
