St. Martin

Two Island Destinations in One

About St. Martin

One Island, Two Destinations

St. Martin is uniquely governed by two countries: The island’s northern collectivity, Saint-Martin, is governed by France, while its southern territory, Sint Maarten, is governed by the Netherlands. Each side offers a different atmosphere, allowing you the unique opportunity to experience two destinations in one. No matter which side you stay on, you can discover the island’s breathtaking beaches, excellent snorkeling, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, horseback riding, and more.

St. Martin villas on both sides of the island feature ultimate tropical luxuries such as clifftop ocean views, direct beach access, and large private pools.

  • Enjoy the best snorkeling on the island at Captain Alan’s Snorkeling Adventure and have fun while you do it!
  • St. Martin offers sailing regattas and deep-sea fishing tournaments throughout the year, as well as diving excursions, yachting and more.
  • Celebrate Carnival with parades, music, and feasting, though at different times; the French side celebrates pre-Lent in February, while the Dutch side celebrates post-Easter in late April.
  • Visit the Sint Maarten Zoo focuses on plants and animals of the Caribbean basin and South American area, including a substantial reptile collection.
  • Learn more about the island and its people from prehistoric to modern times at the Sint Maarten Museum; founded by the St. Maarten Museum Foundation.

The most popular time to travel to St. Martin is from December to the middle of April. The off-season is also rainy season (and technically hurricane season), from late May to mid-November. It doesn’t necessarily rain every day, however, and the island’s high temperatures remain relatively consistent throughout the year. If you don’t want to take any chances with sunshine, travel between December and April. If you prioritize privacy above all else, travel between May and November, when crowds will be at an all-time-low.

Unsure of which side of the island to stay on? St. Maarten, the Dutch side, it bustles with boardwalks, lively beach bars, and late-night casinos. In contrast, the quiet St. Martin, the French side is full of brightly colored boats and houses built up into the cliffs. And, thanks to the French influence, you'll also find some of the best food in the Caribbean.
