The island is under the joint control of France and the Netherlands for over 350 years and has the ideal mix between European and Caribbean cultures.
St. Maarten offers luxurious elegance and isolated beaches on the cosmopolitan French side. On the Dutch side of the island you’ll find a busy commercial center and a marina.
Taxi and minibus connect both sides, without crossing the imperceptible border stops. Zouk, calypso, reggae and jazz provide the soundtrack for a romantic dinner in some of the best Caribbean restaurants.
