Destination Overview

SAINT MAARTEN

St. Maarten is a place like no other and it’s its binational and multicultural identity that enchants locals and visitors alike. One side of the island has a more Caribbean vibe than its northern neighbours, but Saint Martin has its own attractions that travellers must take advantage of. The French side, located in the north, is quieter and leans more to European culture, and provides fuller views and experiences of nature.
