Lobster in St maarten

Sitting at the North-Easterly corner of the Caribbean Island chain this dual flag rock stands out with its numerous beaches and captivating hill top views. You'll be blown away the minute you land at Princess Juliana International Airport.

From above you’d think that the pilot had lost his mind as the 737 barely misses the beach and hops over the fence onto the air strip.

Today the breathtaking experience of the St Maarten landing remains an attraction.

My Description of this GEM is simple.

It's a Caribbean Paradise - It's the only appropriate analogy that comes to mind.  Its views and vistas will just take your breath away.

Now, you can spend all of your time basking in the sun on the 37 beaches and do the popular Mud Baths, or get involved in dozens of other activities.  Relax or play.  Your choice. Do both!

I highly recommend visiting St Martin (as it is sometimes called). “Gosh”, "Wow!" are just some of the comments I hear! And, that's the emotion you'll experience every time you visit.

The residents here will compliment your visit by making you feel as comfortable as can be. We locals offer the best you can find on any Island paradise. It’s a place where we local folk still say “good morning” as you pass by at seven O’clock.

There are enough land and water activities here to last an eternity. From hiking to snorkeling, horse back riding, island excursions, skydiving... the list goes on.
