Saint Martin A-Z
Located in the northeast Caribbean Sea, Saint Martin is the smallest inhabited island in the world that is divided between two different nations.
About 37,000 people live on the side that is referred to as “Saint-Martin.” Although the countries share the island, there is no real border – just a few signs or monuments.
The unique culture has children learning French, Dutch, English, and Spanish while they are in school. That makes language rarely be a barrier for anyone during a visit to the island.
Travel tends to be easier on this, the French side of the island, as it is considered part of the European Union. The Dutch side is not.
A visit to the island means time at the beach is a top priority. With nearly 40 beaches in total, you’ll find a hotel or a resort on almost every single one of them. The beaches are well-developed because of this, with a café, a bar, or both located on most of them. Make sure that you keep a frozen cocktail in hand so you can stay cool on a warm day.
During the stay, try a day of adventure at Loterie Farm. It offers a restaurant and lounge on its grounds, a 150-acre preserve to explore, and ziplining through an obstacle course. Plan ahead to avoid a crush of visitors should a cruise ship be in port during your stay.
You’ll find Saint Martin to be a fascinating experience, no matter which side you prefer. Come prepared to relax and the island will gladly accommodate.
