  • Address: St Martin
  • Hours: Daily
The European feel of northern St Martin owes itself to French influence. Travelers to this scenic—if slightly less developed than its Dutch counterpart—region can escape into the wild and explore some of its natural wonders. From rocky coves to towering bluffs, visitors will find plenty to do and see along the scenic harbors and picturesque shorelines of St Martin.

Crystal blue waters and white sandy beaches make this a destination for sun-worshippers, and clothing-optional spots like Orient Beach and Club Orient prove popular spots for those looking to avoid tan lines. The gourmet meals, unique shopping and friendly locals are easy to find amid the streets of capital Marigot and Grand Case—two of the most-visited towns in the north.

Practical Info

French St Martin makes up the north side of the island, while the Dutch St Maarten occupies the south side. The island is accessible by cruise ship, but the majority of boats dock on the Dutch side of the island. Rental cars are available for hire at the airport, but be sure to check whether they can be driven on both the French and Dutch sides of the island before taking off.
