Caribbean Islands - St-Martin/Sint Maarten (Chapter)
This is the St-Martin/Sint Maarten chapter from Lonely Planet’s Caribbean Islands guidebook.
This island is shared by the French and the Dutch, and has two very distinct personalities. At times they work as one, but in other instances they become a caricature of themselves by exaggerating the traits that make them unique.
- head to Simpson Bay for the odd juxtaposition of cerulean waters and careening jumbo jets
- gorge on sticky ribs at a beachside lolo shack in Grand Case
- restaurants & accommodations
- hop on a catamaran or sailboat and spend the day at sea visiting one of the island’s scrubby satellites, such as Îlet Pinel
