One side is French, the other is Dutch. But no matter where you roam on the Caribbean's St. Maarten, you'll find an amazing mix of sugary beaches, highend shopping, and unique seaside attractions.
On the French half of this 37squaremile island, the vibe is relaxed and upscale. Boutique stores and exquisite restaurants line the streets here. Plus, there is an array of natural attractions to explore including Loterie Farm's treetotree zip line and enticing stretches of white sand. Head up to Fort Louis and take in some enchanting scenery while exploring an enthralling historic site.
The Dutch part of the island is a little more actionfocused. Here the area features more development, with highrise condos, casino hotels, and lively nightclubs. Stroll along the boardwalk in Philipsburg and soak up tranquil views along the Great Bay or hike to the top of a dormant volcano.
This enchanting island is a place you need to see to believe. That's why we created this video to show you more about St Maarten cruise excursions.
