St Martin is the smallest island ever to be owned by two sovereign powers, France and the Netherlands. This delightful destination therefore enjoys the perfect blend of Dutch and French culture together with the bon vivant of Caribbean living.
Sitting pretty at the crown of the Guadeloupe Archipelago, this little gem is just 144 miles from Puerto Rico. The scenic beauty of the island is epitomised by the majestic Mount Flagstaff, an extinct volcano that overlooks the hilly terrain, beautiful beaches and a host of coves and bays.
At 37 square miles, it is fairly easy to get around meaning visitors can experience both sides without much trouble. The French side oozes sophistication with a blasé attitude. It is regarded as the more scenic of the two, is less developed and boasts some of the best dining in the Caribbean. The Dutch side is in the south, with the capital Philipsburg renowned as a duty-free shopper’s paradise. The favoured beach resorts are also found in the Dutch side.
