2414 NETHERLANDS (Sint Maarten) - The Cupecoy Beach

Located at the Southwest corner of St Maarten, Cupecoy Beach is a small, clothing optional beach lined with beautiful rock formations and caves, and with usually calm waters as it is not exposed to the open Atlantic. It had some "stormy" times in the past decade. Not only development projects, but also Hurricanes and the drifts take their toll changing the face of the beach (and the amount of sand) constantly. Thus it has to get filled up with sand once in a while.

About the stamps
The first stamp, depicting a women in traditional costume, was issued in 2014. The second stamp depicts Allure of the seas, and was issued on March 2, 2015.
