At the intersection of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean lies charming, welcoming St. Maarten. This island paradise is renowned for its aquatic activities, from the Heineken Regatta to deep-sea fishing to watching planes fly just overhead at Sunset Beach. Shopping is also a major attraction, thanks to no sales tax and low prices on clothing, jewelry, cosmetics, electronics, and other luxury items.
Dozens of international cuisines can be appreciated in the hundreds of restaurants that combine local flavors with international dishes. And the island’s energy lasts well into the night at beach bars, casinos, and nightclubs.
