Fun Things to Do in St. Maarten and St. Martin

Even though it’s a tiny Caribbean island, there are many Saint Martin activities to lap up – and almost as many incredible resorts on Saint Martin to rest your sun-kissed body.

There’s no passport or immigration office when you cross from the French side to the Dutch. You can freely travel between both sides of the island without stopping.

Because it’s like two islands in one, you can have two very different vacations by staying on both sides. Talk about maximizing your holiday!

Chill, then party, at a Grand Case beach club

The electric turquoise water is typically calm. And the golden sand is so thick your feet sink almost ankle-deep when you go for a stroll.



Learn how to make perfume

You’ll start by choosing your base scent and then build upon it to find your perfect aroma and you get to leave with a personalized fragrance in hand.


Snorkel with turtles at Tintamarre Island

The island is an uninhabited nature reserve, home to sea turtles and nesting seabirds like brown boobies.


Visit Loterie Farm

Loterie Farm has regular parties with DJs and food-and-drink specials so look out for those when you’re in town.


Taste rum at La Part des Anges

The rum tasting room has the finest rums from around the Caribbean. You can savor any one of the 130 bottles and follow that up with a Cuban cigar.
