St. Martin & Sint Maarten

Saint Martin and Sint Maarten are one of the most unique destinations in the world because it is one island that is shared by two countries. The north side of the island called Saint Martin is French, while the southern side, called Sint Maarten is Dutch. The other unique thing about the island is for Princess Juliana International Airport, whose runway is extremely close to Maho Beach on the Dutch side of the island. Several tourists visit the island only to get pictures of themselves standing on the beach with an aircraft flying at extremely low altitude in the background.

Sint Maarten and Saint Martin have a very different atmosphere. Sint Maarten is the party side of the island, with many clubs, bars and casinos and a vibrant nightlife. It is also home to Maho beach, which is extremely popular due to the view of the planes flying at low-altitude. Other attractions on the Dutch side include Front Street & the Boardwalk in Philipsburg, where there are many shops and restaurants, the Rockland Estate eco-adventure park, which has the world’s steepest zipline (56 mile per hour drop), the Butterfly Farm where visitors can learn about and see all kinds of butterfly species, and Mullet Bay and Dawn Beach.

The French side, Saint Martin, on the other hand is much more laid back, and has more beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters like Red Bay, Baie Rouge Beach or Friar’s Bay Beach, and also several clothing-optional beaches like Orient Beach. A must visit for foodies is the village of Grand Case, which has spectacular restaurants like Ocean 82, La Soleil, Auberge Gourmande, and Piazza Pascal. There are also several locations for snorkeling, flyboarding and surfing, and history buffs can visit Fort St. Louis, which offers amazing views of the whole area.
