Bustling & Beautiful – the Dutch side of St. Martin

Feel the excitement and energy of Sint Maarten. More Americanized than its neighbor, the island’s Dutch side boasts limitless beachfront adventure – be sure to visit Cupecoy Beach, with its sandstone cliffs and caves – and fantastic nightlife. Boating, hiking, zip-lining, diving, and surfing are just a few of the activities Sint Maarten is known for. Between explorations, try your luck at a casino, unwind in a spa, or grab a drink at a beachside bar and grill.

Entertain, relax and enjoy at a waterfront Sint Maarten villa, from the sprawling terraces with pools, barbecues and gazebos to the air-conditioned gourmet kitchens and fitness rooms. Jacuzzis and poolside loungers offer a perfect place to unwind after adventurous Sint Maarten days and nights.

When to Go

The most popular time to travel to Sint Maarten is from December to the middle of April. Off-season is also rainy season, from late May to mid-November. It doesn’t necessarily rain every day, however, and the island’s high temperatures remain relatively consistent throughout the year. If you don’t want to take any chances with sunshine, travel between December and April. If you prioritize privacy above all else, travel between May and November, when crowds will be at an all-time-low.
