Creole Rock ‘Feet,’ St. Martin
It is the other, more pronounced side of Creole Rock that gets all the attention. Jutting dramatically from the sea, as it does, the “head” has long remained an iconic symbol of Grand Case, the sexy seaside village that in so many ways embodies the best of French Saint Martin. To me, though, the “feet” section of Creole Rock is photo-worthy in its own right. A small patch of sand surrounded by scattered rocks, home to brown pelicans and other marine birds, the low-lying landmass rests above the best snorkeling area here. The larger, more spectacular head may draw you to Creole Rock, but trust me, you’ll definitely want to spend most of your snorkeling time here exploring beneath the feet.
