Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM)

For hundreds of years the French and Dutch have lived side by side on the island of St. Martin/St. Maarten, making a visit to this one island a dual destination experience. The French side offers fashionable shopping, while the Dutch side of the island hosts casino hotels and a vibrant nightlife.

With its 37 picture-perfect beaches, the options for outdoor fun will satisfy every type of adventurer. Whether exploring the French town of Marigot, or strolling along the Dutch boardwalk of Philipsburg, there’s an abundance of wonderful experiences and memories that can be made on either side.   

Discover One Island With Two Personalities

Couples, foodies and world travelers will relish the many relaxing sights and sounds of a St. Martin/St. Maarten getaway. Enjoy savory, international wines and hors d'oeuvres on a tasting tour around the French capital of Marigot. Shop in the quaint Dutch capital of Philipsburg. Explore the chic island of St. Barths, known for its winding, hillside streets lined with shops showcasing French perfumes and designer clothing. Set sail on a 20-minute boat ride to the British island of Anguilla, home to the picturesque Shoal Bay.

For adventure, St. Martin/St. Maarten’s crystal-clear waters invite sailing, surfing, jet skiing, parasailing, windsurfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking and kite-surfing. Zoom through the streets to explore fantastic scenery on a motorcycle. Stop by Maho Beach, to watch aircraft land over the top of your head. Stay in St. Maarten for lively casinos and clubs, or head to St. Martin for unspoiled natural beaches for travelers who are not modest.

This dining capital of the Caribbean offers visitors the unique experience of enjoying two distinct cultures on one stunning tropical island. Dutch St. Maarten is known for being lively and cosmopolitan, while French St. Martin is more tranquil, with a San Tropez flair.

St. Maarten is renowned for its Las Vegas- and Monaco-style casinos — many found in major hotels — as well as a party atmosphere fueled by a wealth of beach barbeques, live music and high-energy clubs and nightspots. St. Martin's nightlife is centered in Marigot and exudes a more low-key, European flavor, from leisurely dining at cosmopolitan restaurants, to avant-garde street performers, sidewalk cafes, piano bars and Euro-style clubs.

Shopping is a big attraction on the island due to its completely duty-free status and the sheer number of goods imported, which guarantees great bargains on cosmetics, jewelry, liquors, cigars, electronics and much more. Philipsburg in St. Maarten is a popular cruise port, and Front Street boasts a multitude of stores with competitive prices. The capital of the French side, Marigot, offers some elegant duty-free shopping in original boutiques and shopping arcades, highlighting the sophisticated styles of Parisian designers, as well as European merchandise and luxury items, such as Lalique crystal and Louis Vuitton handbags.
