St. Maarten is a stunning island located in the Dutch Caribbean, is a place where the sun always shines and the fun never stops. With its lively beach bars, world-famous casinos, and breathtaking beaches, St. Maarten is a destination that promises fun and excitement for all. It’s not the cheapest island in the Caribbean, but definitely worth a visit.

It is divided into two parts: Dutch and French part. You can easily cross into the other side of the island as there is no special border control between both sides. 

You can soak up the sun on the island’s stunning beaches like Maho Beach, where planes fly just overhead (make sure to take care of your stuff, otherwise it’ll fly into the ocean!), or take a dip in the turquoise waters of Great Bay. And when the sun goes down, the island comes alive with its vibrant nightlife scene. 

But St. Maarten isn’t just about partying: the island is absolutely stunning and deserves to be explored. The island offers a range of outdoor activities, from zip-lining through the rainforest to exploring the island’s natural wonders like the famous Loterie Farm. And let’s not forget about the island’s famous cuisine, with a mix of Dutch, Caribbean, and French influences, visitors can enjoy delicious dishes like fresh seafood and more.

So if you’re looking for a destination that promises non-stop fun, sun, and adventure, St. Maarten Island is the perfect place for you. Come and join paradise!
