Are you looking for your new holiday destination?
Maybe this beautiful Caribbean Island is for you. St. Martin is one of the must visit destinations in the Caribbean. It’s an island divided between two countries France and Netherlands. The main cities are Philipsburg (Dutch side) and Marigot (French side). The Island is known for it’s beautiful beaches and watersports. If you are looking for excitement on the island, just go to the beach and maybe before you even notice, the plane is flying over your head. Maho Beach is a beach on the Dutch side. It is famous for being adjacent to the Princess Juliana International Airport, and is a popular site for tourists and plane watchers, who visit the beach to watch aircraft on a final approach landing at the airport, passing only a short distance above their heads. I loved the island and would love to go again.[slide-anything id=’16821′]
On 6 September 2017 the island was hit by Hurricane Irma (Category 5 at landfall), which caused widespread and significant damage to buildings and infrastructures. Even last December when I was visiting the Island you could see damaged buildings and boats, but island has recovered 90% from the last hurricane.
Did you know? The island of Saint Martin is the smallest island shared by two countries in the world, at only 88 square kilometers (34 square miles) total.
