Beach lovers and water sports fans will feel right at home on Saint Martin. Whether you visit the Dutch or the French part, you are always surrounded by stunning Caribbean views of swaying palm trees and white sandy beaches. This Leeward Island has over 44 miles of coastline and is thus the perfect destination for snorkelling, diving, (kite) surfing, kayaking – or simply lounging at a beach bar.
Saint Martin features more than 37 different bays, each with its own character. Beyond any doubt, the most striking one is Maho Beach. This beach is popular with plane spotters, as it is so close to the flight path of Princess Juliana International Airport that the slipstream of incoming aircraft frequently whips up the beach towels. Those who prefer a quiet beach refuge can visit the more remote bays. And in between these 2 extremes, Saint Martin also offers many trendy beaches with beach clubs and fun restaurants.
