ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)

St Martin/St Maarten is the smallest island in the world shared by two different nations - the French and the Dutch. This co-existence has lasted for over 350 years.

Their border is indiscernible, and people cross back and forth never realizing they are entering a different country.

Each side has retained much of the distinctiveness of its national culture. St. Maarten (Dutch) is an active center for tourism and trade, is more developed and very Dutch. It's also home to a busy cruise port and commercial district.

The French side offers more elegance and comfort with luxury resorts and fine-dining restaurants. St Martin is also well-known for its shopping, offering some of the latest in French fashions.

Both offer water-based activities, whether its diving, snorkeling, fishing or beaching.

No matter which side of this unique destination one chooses first, a great time will be enjoyed.
