    St Martin

    The island of St Martin is divided into two parts, the north is French and the south is Dutch and called “Sint Maarten”. Originally, the territory was inhabited by Amerindians. Since the 17th century, the island has been occupied by the French, the English and the Dutch. The French side of the island exudes a stylish ambience, is known as the culinary capital of the Caribbean and we feature some stunning accommodations to experience the attractions of this enticing island.

    With breathtaking scenery, you can explore St Martin in a variety of ways, from zip lining your way through hills or enjoy a ride on horseback. The Mornes, small mountains on the island, are full of hiking destinations (such as Paradise Peak, Mont Careta, Mont France.).The island is blessed with lovely white sand beaches and turquoise waters. For those who love the water, there are plenty of water sports, and it’s the perfect destination for a catamaran cruise. Divers will experience some fantastic corals and undersea caves. A trip to Fort Louis is also recommended to admire the wide open view of Marigot Bay and visit the museum “On the trail of the Arawaks” that tells the island’s history until the 1930s.

    DINING, BARS AND NIGHTLIFE

    Being a French territory you can expect to experience culinary delights, from fine dining to a local barbeque grill with an abundance of fried fish and lobster. There is also a lovely blend of European and West Indian influences.
