Saint Martin is an island in the northeast Caribbean Sea, approximately 190 miles east of Puerto Rico. Vacationers will love the fact that it is home to 30 gorgeous beaches.
It’s the perfect destination for visitors who like swimming, snorkeling, windsurfing, parasailing, scuba diving, and sunbathing. (It should be noted that some beaches have a small secluded clothing optional area). One side is French, and the other side is Dutch, which offers a unique mixture of experiences for the intrepid vacationer.
One of its most intriguing features is that the island is divided into two parts, with one side Dutch and the other side French. Sint Maarten is an independent country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. St. Martin is an overseas collectivity of France. Both are culturally distinct, offering a fascinating variety of architecture, cuisine and experiences.
The best time to visit St. Martin depends in part on the type of vacation that interests your family and you. The period between November and May is generally a great time, since the temperatures are in the low 80’s, there is little rain, and entertainment venues, shops, and restaurants have extended hours.
There is an international airport in Sint Maarten, the Dutch side of the island, and a regional airport on St. Martin, the French side. Princess Juliana Airport (SXM) has direct flights from the many cities in the US including New York, Boston, Miami, Chicago and Charlotte. Airlines serving that airport include American, Delta, JetBlue, Spirit, and United.
In order to be granted permission to enter St. Maarten, U.S. citizens must possess a passport valid for the duration of their stay. A visa is not needed.
