Top Things To Do
The active traveller will enjoy wandering around St Maarten and partake in the outdoors adventures available, such as climbing, horseback riding, or hiking one of the nature trails leading up to the island's highest point and dramatic panoramic views.
On its coastline, the island offers blood-pumping surfing, kitesurfing, wakeboarding, and windsurfing opportunities, making the most of the Caribbean Sea trade winds. Stunning diving and snorkelling sites are sometimes reachable directly from the beach, and the Sea Trek excursion makes the island's underwater life accessible to all.
To get closer to the island's heart, visit the various heritage sites such as the fortress and border monument, or head to the museum. Wander around the streets and meet the locals in Philipsburg and Marigot, or at the carnival celebrations, and visit the Loterie Farm for a closer look at the island's stunning flora and fauna.
