Why you should visit St. Martin

They both have gorgeous beaches and an active party scene, but the French half of St. Martin /Sint Maarten possesses that extra something that comes about when you partner French sophistication with a wild Caribbean charm. Make no mistake, this is very much a tourist destination and it makes no effort to be seen as anything but. The cohabitation wasn’t easy initially (with periodic bouts of violence throughout the 17th and 18th centuries) but these days everyone is too busy having a good time to bother with territorial disputes. For the best experience, take a trip to the Dutch side and see how they measure up.
