The Friendly Website - our St Maarten
Our beautiful island has always been the perfect destination throughout the year to spend your holidays. And what better is there than to go prepared. In our friendly website you will find everything you need to know about our island: from the best hotels, beautiful all inclusive pampering resorts, great luxurious condos and villas to live like a celebrity, to restaurants, sporty events, family friendly activities, entertainment, nature, weather and much more.
Your vacation will be everything but boring because of the variety of things todo. One day you could relax at one of our beautiful white sand beaches, the next one, do some shopping, and the following sweat it off through some active sports. Tour around the island in a rental and perhaps get lost in the magical Caribbean inland nature. Get acquainted with our rich culture, enjoy our delicious typical food and international restaurants, and even safely hop around bars. You could also stay with us while sailing by with your boat or while on a cruise. Of course, don't leave the island before taking a look at the amazing airplane landings at one of the smallest international airports of the world and “surf the fence” during takeoffs.
Enjoy your visit though our website and our island. Find us also in Facebook where every question you might have can be answered, and we will try to serve you as good as possible.
