There is usually a small tourist office at the dockside in each port of call where you can ask about the nearest/best beaches. Then you can get a taxi to it- agree a price first though and even try to get others to share with you. The price given is normally the price per taxi so the more there are the cheaper it should be.

I would say the best beach on St Maarten is Orient Beach. Taxis are safe, plentiful. Costs around $6-7 pp to get over there.
