Saint-Martin

Get ready for an awesome time in St Martin

Right now, you should be arranging a holiday with your family if you haven’t already been to Saint-Martin. It is quite easy to navigate your way around, even as a first-time visitor. A water taxi will take you to the beautiful white sands of Pinel Islet. This is a perfect place for families looking for a spot to relax with their kids. You will be welcomed by an array of coconut trees, the turquoise waters and the white sands.

If you are on your second visit, instead of dropping off at the Saint-Martin Pinel Islet, you can try the Maho Beach for a tanning session. This beach is situated in the Dutch part of the Island of Saint-Martin and has a contrasting effect of watching the planes fly over your head and the soothing feel of the breeze. It is always teeming with tourists due to its proximity to the St Maarten airport.

All day fun

The beach will serve as an appetizer after which you can head off to begin your shopping. If you want to shop for French items, try Marigot while Philipsburg is your go-to place for Dutch items. Shopping in the Marigot market is exciting as you can sample the homemade rum with over 25 different flavours. Like everywhere in Saint-Martin, you get to enjoy a duty free shopping in Philipsburg. Therefore, it is an excellent place to check out the jewelry stores.

After your shopping and tour of the city, you may want to party hard after watching the Heineken regatta set sail. The Tuesday parties at the Grand-Case are fun enough to make you want to extend your stay, and if you are here around April, you get to participate in the King’s birthday. Saint-Martin has both night and day life that is captivating and would leave you with fond memories.
