St. Martin: Sandy’s BBQ

On Saturday, Ken and I decided to pack up our bathing suits and head to Orient beach, one of the more popular beaches in St. Martin. We went to a restaurant called Palm Beach, which offered lounge chairs, umbrellas, and decently priced food in an Indonesian-themed setting. The waves at Orient beach were a lot stronger than the ones by our hotel and we had a lot of fun playing in the water (although it was freezing!) and spent the majority of the morning at the beach. We were originally going to go jetskiing in the afternoon but when we were getting ready to go, Ken looked at me and realized that I was red like a lobster. My shoulders, chest, thighs, and feet started turning red and we ended up going back to the hotel to assess the damage.

When we got back to the hotel, we purchased some aloe vera and I was starting to get more and more red. We decided to try to get some food since the Heineken Regatta just finished and there was a big outdoor party on the French side, so we drove to the regatta area and found a place to eat. I wanted some jerk pork or ribs and we randomly found a restaurant, Sandy’s, that looked pretty good. I wasn’t too hungry so we decided to share a plate of jerk ribs with a side of rice and salad:


We were both surprised with how delicious it ended up being; the meat fell right off the bone and reminded me of a Chinese dish my mom makes where she braises meat in all sorts of spices to make it super flavorful. Ken also got a little burnt but wasn’t in as much pain as me:


We ended up driving home because we were both super itchy and ended up spending the night in our hotel room – I was bathing in aloe vera and Ken ended up ordering room service because he didn’t want to leave my side. I think we ended the evening around 9pm (exciting for our last night of vacation!)
