St Martin

St Martin
Half French and half Dutch, St Martin is cuturally very rich. Having lived together peacefully for 200 years these two communities are the same and yet different. The Dutch side, the southern half, is smaller and home to Philipsburg, one of the main ports. On the French side, Marigot is the main port.

Saint Martin has good winds, medium seas and many reasonably short distance sails to closeby islands, like Anguilla and St Barts The island has many hotels, restaurants and boutiques and offers duty free shopping. There are also casinos ashore. Surrounded by several white sandy beaches St Martin has embraced the yachting industry and is home to many mega yachts.

Yacht Charter around Saint Martin
Offering unparalleled variety this group of islands combines spectacular scenery and friendly people. Each island has its own character and culture although their heritage of European colonialism is very apparent. It is, however, very clear that the heart of the islands now beat to the rhythmic pulse of a West Indian drum.

Anguilla
A tiny island with miles of white sandy beaches and surrounded by coral reefs. Prickly Pear Cays offers the best snorkelling.

St. Bart’s
If scuba diving is your sport of choice, then the natural marine reserve of St. Bart’s is a must-visit for you. The small island of St Barts has few anchorages but is effortlessly chic. Often referred to as the St Tropez of the Caribbean, a visit to the Port of Gustavia will make you feel as though you stepped into the South of France.

St. Kitts & Nevis
Uncrowded and unspoilt with prohibitively expensive property, St. Kitts remains a jewel in the Caribbean crown. A great destination for nature lovers who enjoy hikes through tropical forests.

Visiting Nevis is like stepping back in time. Hard to reach by the masses, Nevis is still very unspoiled.

Watersports
Snorkelling and Scuba Diving
There are several scuba diving centers around the Islands to take you to one of the many great dive sites.
