TripAdvisor has published on its website the Top 25 best destinations in the Caribbean and Mexico. Saint Martin is at the top in 5th place!
The “Friendly Island” is described as an unusual destination: two islands, two cultures, on a single radius of 37 square miles.
A “spicy marriage” of French, Dutch and of course Caribbean culture that matches its cultural and physical diversity.
The island is both urban and untamed, provided with beautiful tropical landscapes, 36 white sandy beaches, unique small caves, and amazing fauna and flora! Lively beaches such as Orient Bay, ideal for water sports and parties that recall the atmosphere of the beaches of Saint-Tropez; or more peaceful and wild beaches such as the Pinel Islet, the Galion or Tintamarre.
Wonderful places of tourist activities that cannot be missed: the Loterie Farm where you can discover the only secondary rainforest on the island, the best place for hiking and tree climbing, or the Butterfly Farm, where you can admire incredible species of all colors and sizes.
Among the feedbacks left by travelers on TripAdvisor, we note that the Museum of Marigot “On the Trails of the Arawaks” attracts many strollers who benefit from this visit to make a trip back in time by discovering real antiques from the Arawaks.
The Dutch side is also very popular, especially for the Maho area, where you can sip a cocktail at the famous Sunset Beach Bar while watching the planes landing, listen and watch the incredible performance of singers and dancers in restaurants and bar, at night. Maho is undoubtedly the ideal place for revelers or lovers!
And if the “Friendly Island” has such a nickname, it is because of the hospitality, charm and kindness of its inhabitants, who are definitely engraved in everyone’s minds, and that makes our island a place like nowhere on earth…
