The French and the Dutch can lay equal claim to these majestic green peaks, stunning sandy beaches and sparkling waters. The two cultures exist in perfect serenity, whilst maintaining the individuality of their homeland, giving St Maarten a charm of its own. St Maarten is a perfect starting point for a yacht charter vacation. Sail south through all the Leeward Islands on an epic adventure ending on the French island of Guadeloupe.

For something closer to home, head toward the striking island of St Kitts or north to the unrivalled "wreck dive capital" reef of Anguilla. If you find the parody of choices all too much, don't do anything at all. Enjoy the atmosphere of St Maarten's restaurant and club scene. With so many cultural influences, St Martin is renowned for legendary, exotic cuisine and vibrant nightlife. Surrounding the cosmopolitan areas are superb anchorages, great snorkeling, and wide-open sailing.

St Martin is a beautiful island located in the leeward island group of the Caribbean. The island has a landmass of 87 square kms and it is divided roughly to 60 percent France and 40 percent Netherlands. The southern part is Dutch and it comprises of Sint Maarten. The northern part of the island is French and it consists of Collectivite de Saint-Martin.  St. Martin’s Dutch side and French side share beautiful beaches, hilly terrain, a host of coves and bays however the pace and personality of each side differs tremendously. St. Maarten’s Dutch side has a larger population and is peppered with art galleries, jewelry stores, casinos and nightlife.  The French side is quainter and hosts the village of Grand Case offering plenty of great restaurants. St Martin locals speak and understand English and the other official languages are Dutch and French.

The best way that you can explore the picturesque island of St Martin is by hiring a charter yacht. When you have embarked on your charter yacht, nearby islands you can explore include Anguilla, Saba, St Eustatius, Nevis and St. Kitts. All these islands are unique from each other and they have their own separate beauty. Before you pick up your luxury yacht charter in St Martin or perhaps after, you can stay at one of the many beach resorts, hotels and villas. Once you are on the island you can explore the interiors by taking a car rental. A four wheel drive is normally recommended since the topography becomes rugged in some parts.
