Five Great Things to Do in St. Martin

There are actually two territories making up the tiny island of St. Martin, a Dutch side (Sint Maarten) and a French side (St. Martin). Like many Caribbean locations, St. Martin is a beautiful place to find rest and relaxation amongst the luxurious sun and surf. When you are ready to take a break from your beach crawling however, so here are 5 great things to do in St. Martin to shake it up and get your party started on either side of the island!
  • Plan a day at Orient Beach (French) for those of us that just can’t get enough of the ocean, this is the best place to be!  Indulge in your favorite hobby, be it jet skiing or beach combing, and finish it up with top notch service at one of the great waterfront cafes.
  • Go yachting! There are many opportunities to spend some well deserved relaxation time on a little pleasure cruise.  There are many options as to the time of day and activities, including: night charters, boat trips for deep sea fishing.  To experience the best in sailing excitement try the America’s Cup Racers!
  • Shop till you drop on Front Street (Dutch) By far the best bargains can be found here on Front Street in Philipsburg on the Dutch side of the island.  It’s likely to be crowded, so if fighting the throng is too much for you, try some window shopping on Back Street, which runs parallel to Front St.
  • Take a peek at Pic du Paradis (French) Look down upon all of St. Martin from the beautiful view atop Pic du Paradis mountain (at a modest elevation of 1,492 ft).  It’s a lovely sight framed by lush tropical vegetation, a perfect place for taking your group to pose for pictures!
  • Try your luck at the Casino Royale (Dutch) If at the end of your trip that extra money is burning a hole in your pocket you can try the tables at any of the island’s many casinos, but popular vote goes to Casino Royale on the Dutch side for class and flare. They have over 400 slot machines and 20 gaming tables including roulette, craps, blackjack and poker.  If you’d like some of the glam with none of the risk, the Casino hosts nightly shows at 10pm in its 800 seat Showroom Royale Theater.
