Destination

The island of St. Martin/Sint Maarten is a bustling island  with beautiful beaches, and a robust culture. Phillipsburg, its capital, is perfect for shopping and being intertwined with the people of the island. 


Sint Maarten, the Dutch side, is the lively side of the island. With Maho Village and the famous Maho beach at your doorsteps, there's always something to see or do.


St. Martin, the French side, is the more relaxed side with boutique hotels, and so many restaurants to try the islands local cuisine.


The island also makes for great island hopping to the near by islands of Anguilla, Saba and St. Barts. (all currently require full vaccination for entry)
