Call it either St. Maarten or St. Martin, but you’re sure to enjoy the confluence of Dutch and French cultures that you encounter on this island. While the Dutch half of the island is dotted with nightclubs and casinos the French side is relatively laid back and low key. Here’s a quick suggestion on “must visit” and “must do” items for your itinerary.

Day 1: Cruise Away!

What would a Caribbean holiday be without a cruise? Not much! Thankfully, St. Maarten offers visitors a number of spectacular cruising options. The St. Martin Golden Eagle Cruise is a full day at sea extravaganza with stops at Tintemarre, Creole Rock and Grand Case, among others.  Alternatively, check out the St. Martin Pirates Day Cruise or the Tango Caribbean Dinner Cruise, if you prefer sailing by night.

Day 2: Cash in at the Casinos

St Maarten’s main resort area, Maho Bay, in many ways resembles a mini Las Vegas with its plethora of restaurants, galleries and of course, casinos. Many a tourist walks out with a small fortune while most others walk out with an empty wallet and fun memories. Not surprisingly, some of the longer cruises also have casinos onboard.

Day 3: Head Outside

Head out on a Day Trip to the Island of Prickly Pear on the Lambada, which over the years has acquired quite a name for itself as the best in party boat fun and family gatherings. Alternatively, embark on a day trip to Anguilla where you can enjoy snorkelling off of Sandy Island or relaxing on the beautiful Bay Beach. The Saba Day Trip takes you to this “unspoiled queen” ecological paradise, only an hour and a half away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
