A slice of Europe in the heart of the Caribbean, Saint Martin's rich heritage, paradisiacal scenery, and variety of outstanding luxury resorts make this small island one of the region's most exciting.
Shared by two nations, the north by France and the south by the Netherlands, Saint Martin is the picture of paradise, nestled away in the northeast Caribbean Sea. From the bustle of the south to the elegance of the north, Saint Martin's distinct Franco-Dutch atmosphere can be felt at every turn, making it an excellent destination for a Caribbean holiday with a difference. Whether you're after a luxurious honeymoon in a hillside resort or an exciting family getaway in an all-inclusive resort, our expert Caribbean specialists are on hand to personally design every aspect of your luxury Saint Martin holiday.
Marigot, the glitzy capital of the north, is a picturesque town packed with colourful villas mounting lush slopes, a busy yacht dock, and a range of traditional French cafes and boutique shops, evocative of a French village. From here, travellers can visit enchanting beaches, including Orient Bay, the finest on the island, as well as browse at outdoor markets, zipline through the tropical gardens of the Loterie Farm plantation, and trek up to Pic Paradise to take in the island's grandeur. The south boasts a livelier ambience, with many of the island's nightclubs, restaurants and historical attractions found here. Phillipsburg is home to many of Sint Maarten's most notable attractions, including the boardwalk, Front Street and the Great Bay. Snorkelling and diving opportunities are in abundance across the island, with dozens of perfect beaches leading to healthy coral reefs and exotic marine life, most notably Cupecoy Beach, Simpson Bay and Anse Marcel.
Saint Martin's tropical climate means temperatures are warm all year, although the best time to visit is between December and April when rainfall is at its lowest.

The National Nature Reserve of St. Martin, which spans 3,060 hectares and 11 kilometres of coastline, is home to coral reefs, mangroves, phanerogam seagrass beds, ponds, and coastal woods, making it a perfect location for anyone looking to explore the island's natural splendour. Kayaking, snorkelling, sailing, and hiking are just a few of the activities available to explore the landscapes.
The Phillipsburg Boardwalk, set against a stunning backdrop of lush mountains, is St Martin's entertainment centre in the south, featuring everything from boutique stores and food stalls to historic buildings. Front Street, which links to the boardwalk, is a fantastic shopping destination, with designer shops and jewellery stores lining its charming streets.
A stark contrast to St. Martin's white-sand beaches, the Loterie Farm is a former plantation with rich terrains of tropical forestry. Now a private nature reserve, travellers can visit the farm and spend an afternoon exploring its beauty on a number of exploratory excursions, such as hiking, ziplining and swimming.
Charter a private boat or take the daily ferry from Cul de Sac to Pinel Island, an uninhabited island renowned for its beautiful beaches and turquoise waters. Spend a day engaging in a variety of marine excursions before visiting one of the island's few restaurants for an unforgettable dinner in the company of nothing but awe-inspiring views.
