The “friendly island” offers a unique blend of many cultures. Over 120 nationalities!
Saint-Martin is divided in half between France and the Netherlands, making it the smallest inhabited island divided between two nations.
A wonderful tropical destination fringed by pristine beaches, scenic rolling hills and an average tropical temperature ranging from 75°F to 83°F all year round.
This multinational ownership results in the island being referred to by different names: Sint. Maarten (Dutch side) and Saint-Martin (French side).
The tiny island, covering 88km², is nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.
The official currencies are the Euro on the French side and the Florin on the Dutch side. The Dollar is universally accepted. English is widely spoken on both sides of the island.
Marigot, the French side capital, is very cosmopolitan. Boutiques and restaurants sit side-by-side with lovely traditional stalls. The local market must not be missed!
Phillipsburg, the Dutch side capital, has rapidly gained a reputation for being the shopping paradise of the Eastern Caribbean with its famed “golden mile” of Frontstreet.
Located in the leeward islands of the eastern Caribbean, Saint-Martin is a short 4 hours flight away from New York and 2 hours from Miami.
