St. Maarten is the smallest island in the world shared by two nations, France and the Netherlands and is also home to 140 nationalities. This tiny treasure offers an irresistible blend of French, Dutch and Caribbean culture, beaches and water sports, shopping, fine dining and nightlife.
A brief History of the island
St. Maarten is an important gateway to the Caribbean with direct flights from New York, Miami, Philadelphia, Charlotte, Chicago, Newark, Atlanta and Boston in the United States, San Juan in Puerto Rico, and Toronto, Montreal and Halifax in Canada. There are also regular flights from Amsterdam and Paris in Europe.
