The sun-soaked paradise of Sint Maarten is a magical oasis with sugary beaches and azure water. The 13-square mile Sint Maarten draws travelers from around the world.

Some travelers arrive by cruise ship  to the Philipsburg's port. A major hub in the Caribbean, the capital's port accommodates up to eight ships at one time, and it recently welcomed the world’s largest ship – Icon of the Seas.

The Dutch side of the unique two-nation island is also known for its world-famous landing approach which brings in planes over crowds at the hugely popular Maho Beach. Sint Maarten is also celebrated for shopping, dining and adventure.

When should I go to Sint Maarten?

The short answer is anytime. Located in the Lesser Antilles among the northernmost Leeward Islands, Sint Maarten enjoys a tropical climate with average temperatures ranging from 74℉ (23 ℃) to 90℉ (32℃). 

With roughly 8 to 10 hours of sun a day, summoning your inner beach bum will be easy work whenever you go.

Visiting during the off season (June to November) means fewer crowds, lower hotel rates and cheaper flights, but it also coincides with hurricane season when the heat intensifies. Though hurricanes rarely occur you should bookmark the National Hurricane Center for up-to-date information before and during your stay. 

High season (December to April) brings higher rates as the weather mellows and famed events like Carnival and the Heineken Regatta kick-off. 

How much time should I spend in Sint Maarten?

Plan to spend at least a long weekend, or better yet book five days. Besides unwinding on pristine beaches with amazing snorkeling, Sint Maarten is a hit with shopaholics. 

Philipsburg is filled with scores of shops selling luxury goods and local merchandise. Shopping is a big draw (approximately two million people visit each year) because of the country’s duty-free status, saving you up to 30% on purchases compared to in the USA. 

The culinary scene reflects the mashup of approximately 114 nationalities in Sint Maarten.

While inland, nature enthusiasts will want to check out the jaw-dropping vistas on a hike, or head on a zipline, schooner and gondola adventure.

Wellness-seekers will find a once-in-a-lifetime spa experience through Serenity Spa at an idyllic cliffside gazebo on Maho Bay near Princess Juliana International Airport, where planes land over the beach.

Situated above peaceful turquoise water, the magical spa setting contrasts with the faint din of beachgoers cheering as planes land.

You can also tailor your trip to the history-buff in the family with an itinerary that includes the Concordia Monument, the sight marking the border of Saint Martin, and Fort Amsterdam, the 1631 Dutch military fortress. 

Cruise ships docked at pier on the Dutch side of St. Maarten. Passengers wanting to go to town are tendered to the smaller Hodge Pier in Philipsburg.

Is it easy to get in and around Sint Maarten?

Nonstop international flights from major U.S. cities, Amsterdam and Paris bring a flurry of international travelers. A large share of visitors come ashore from massive ships such as Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian, docking close to Philipsburg’s vibrant boardwalk. 

Taxis or buses are available but for maximum flexibility you should consider renting a car. More adventurous travelers should inquire about renting an ATV, a family-friendly buggy or scooter.

Top things to do in Sint Maarten  

Make a classic johnny cake in sint maarten .

Attend a Johnny Cake class at Fleming’s Cafe with charismatic chef, Lennox Fleming. The personalized classes are curated to fit the interests and size of a group and can be arranged through email ([email protected]) or Facebook messenger. 

A Johnny Cake is a fried, cornmeal flatbread, a staple in Sint Maarten and throughout the Caribbean . A highly versatile food, the Johnny Cake is a go-to whether you’re dunking them in soup or making sandwiches. 

Since it’s no fun to begin a cooking class on an empty stomach, indulge in chef Fleming’s local “musts” like banana fritters and saltfish before pivoting to measure, mix, knead and fry up delicious Johnny Cakes. 

Whether by land or sea, enjoy the natural wonders of Sint Maarten

There are 37 beaches on Sint Maarten from secluded hideaways like Indigo Bay or the lively Maho Beach. Visitors flock to Maho Beach to snap a photo of incoming aircrafts.

You can dive into sea life at any one of the 35 dive sites around the island or enjoy the top-notch snorkeling at Mullet Bay and Cupecoy Beach where you can revel in colorful busy reefs. Check out shipwrecks teeming with marine life in Simpson Bay and Little Bay with the floating Tiki Hut. 

 Head into the rainforest to ride the Flying Dutchman , the steepest zipline in the world. Securely strapped in a seat suspended by cable 2,800ft above ground: don’t forget to admire the view as you hurtle down 1,050 feet at a 42% grade. 

 A colorful restaurant called L'Escargot (the snail serves French food in Philispburg near many popular shopping areas.

Eat food from around the world in Sint Maarten 

As we mentioned: foodies love Sint Maarten for its diverse and highly-acclaimed cuisine which reflects its many cultures from Pacific Islanders to Europeans, Asians and varied Caribbean nations — this island has the highest number of nationalities per capita.

If you adore Mediterranean cuisine, flag Azul , a stunning restaurant perched high with views of the famed Maho flight path.

For Asian fusion, try Aziana located on the historic Rolandus Canal and order the Babi Pangang, a Dutch-Indonesian-Chinese-styled grilled pork dish – a phenomenon in the area. 

If you’re hankering for New Orleans fare, head to NOLA , a Bayou Bistro in Simpson Bay. And with French Saint Martin just across the border, fine French cuisine is at your doorstep in Cupecoy Bay at the Rendez Vous Lounge .  

Shop-til-you-drop in Sint Maarten 

Take advantage of Sint Maarten’s duty-free status and head to Philipsburg—a shopper’s dream—with flea-market stalls, upscale jewelry stores and designer labels David Yurman, Mango and Dior. 

Peruse the colorful Guavaberry Emporium , the country’s national liqueur. The centuries-old rum is made from a berry growing wild in the center of the island which, despite its name, doesn’t taste like guava, instead it has a woodsy, bittersweet flavor. Drink the famed liqueur neat, like the locals do, or use it to create cocktails.

For a taste of The Netherlands , stop at AMAsterdam for a cold Heineken and Instagram-pose in a giant wooden shoe. At Amsterdam Cheese and Liquor Store find an astonishing array of Dutch cheese and talk with friendly cheese aficionados about taking up to 20 pounds (9kg) of cheese home with you.  

Party at Maho Village in Sint Maarten 

The main nightlife is found in Maho Village. Feeling lucky? The Casino Royal is the biggest on the island showcasing 21,000 sq ft of gaming. Stroll down the street for live music at The Hole in the Wall , late night dancing at the Moonbar Rooftop ,  or disappear into the clubby White Rabbit Piano Lounge .

 By day, check out the newly opened carnival museum We Culture celebrating the history of the high-octane spring festival—and likely inspiring a future visit.

Sint Maarten is a perfect base for island hopping

With its large international airport, Sint Maarten serves as a gateway to surrounding smaller islands. Take a ferry in Simpson Bay and in 45 minutes, you’ll find yourself on the upmarket French island of St-Barthélemy . 

Anguilla , a British territory, is just a 25-minute boat ride away, and for a full day-trip, consider dreamy Saba , a 1.5-hour ferry journey (each way).

How much money do I need for Sint Maarten?

The Netherlands Antillean guilder is the official currency, but the US dollar is equally accepted. 

As a tax-free zone, expensive brands are available for less than in the USA. Sint Maarteen can be pricey compared to neighboring islands, but there are deals to be found. There is also an abundance of supermarkets for those wanting to self-cater on a budget. 

Average daily costs

Hotel room: US$100 – US$500 Bed and breakfast: US$55 – US$600 Dinner for two (3-courses): US$100 – US$140 Pint of beer: US$2 – US$6 Rental car/day: US$40 – US$80 Taxi: US$8 – US$35 Bus: US$1 – US$3

Things you should know before going to Sint Maarten

Sint Maarten is different from Saint Martin. Although Saint Martin and Sint Maarten share one island, they are distinct nations. Occupying the less-developed northern two-thirds of the island, Saint Martin is a French Overseas Collectivity and Marigot is the capital. 

However, crossing between the countries is hardly apparent: the binational island boasts the longest open border in the world.

Be mindful of the cruise ship schedule

When planning your much-awaited shop-til-you-drop outing to Philipsburg, consult the cruise port schedule . Though the renowned port and services are extensive, crowds can be challenging. In the 2023 winter season, a record-setting six ships arrived on the same day, bringing ashore 30,349 people. 

My favorite thing to do in Sint Maarten

As an avid traveler, I thought Maho Bay’s landing path over the beach wouldn’t draw me in, but I was so wrong. The number of photos and videos on my phone prove that I was ga-ga just like every other tourist in Sint Maarten.

My inner child took over and I couldn’t stop marveling at planes of all sizes swooping in over the azure water. The vibe was infectious as beachgoers cheered, clapped, jumped and waved to incoming planes.

Why Go To St. Martin - St. Maarten

If you associate the Caribbean with a laid-back atmosphere, a tranquil beach and a quiet sunset, then you haven't been to feisty St. Martin and St. Maarten. What's the best part of visiting this dual-governed island? You can get a taste of two distinct, lively cultures all for the price of one vacation. Like much of the Caribbean, the island was hit hard by Hurricane Irma in 2017. Make sure you call or check the websites of any businesses you plan to visit in advance to check on their status. The 37-square-mile dot is popular with travelers who like to eat well, party hard and shop duty-free in between trips to the beach. The north side, St. Martin, is controlled by the French government. It's the home of the island's tastiest restaurants and party beaches. Whereas cosmopolitan St. Maarten shelters the most animated casinos, bars and clubs. A territory of the Netherlands Antilles, St. Maarten takes up the southern 16 square miles.

But for all the excitement, St. Martin and St. Maarten still foster a stress-free vibe – starting out with how easily you can pass between both sides of the island. So catch a few morning rays on a quiet Dutch-side beach; later, take a leisurely afternoon stroll through a French-side mountain. You'll be more than primed to sneak back over the border for a night in the casinos.

St. Martin - St. Maarten Travel Tips

Best months to visit.

The best time to visit St. Martin and St. Maarten is May and June or between November and mid-December. These select weeks are times when hotels advertise their best rates. The island's weather is pleasant year-round, but these are times when rain showers are less likely. Summer and early fall are not good for a vacation; many hotels close in this offseason and there's a chance of hurricanes. Also avoid visiting in winter and early spring (mid-December to April) if you can. That's when St. Martin and St. Maarten milks its wealthy vacationers.

Weather in St. Martin - St. Maarten

Data sourced from the National Climatic Data Center

What You Need to Know

The official language In St. Martin it's French. Meanwhile, St. Maarten's official language is both Dutch and English. Confused yet? Don't worry – English is widely spoken throughout.

How to say "watch out" in Dutch You should definitely go to Maho Bay to see a few 747s land at the neighboring Princess Juliana International Airport. But  uitkijken ! This can be a scary, noisy and windy experience.

How to say "Live and Let Live" in French St. Martin's beaches are well-known for their  vivre et laisser vivre  philosophy on swimsuits (in other words, expect to see a lot of bare chests and bottoms).

How to Save Money in St. Martin - St. Maarten

Don't tip extra  You'll see some restaurants have put an extra 15-percent "tax" on the bill that the wait staff might neglect to tell you is their service charge. Don't tip extra unless your service was really exceptional.

Email, don't phone  Making a call from the French side to the Dutch side, and vice versa, is considered an international call. Some businesses will have two numbers (to help you avoid this particular nuisance), but if not, attempt to make restaurant reservations and book island tours by email.

Take the bus  Things move at a more leisurely pace in the Caribbean, so take advantage of that by taking the bus to the top tourist sites. There's no set schedule for drop-off and pick-ups, but you'll get where you want to go for about $1.50 one-way.

Culture & Customs

A true "Tale of Two Cities,"   the island of St. Martin and St. Maarten is proud of its dual heritage and customs. There is no physical border between the French and Dutch territories and people and goods may travel freely between both sides of the island. The Dutch side's official currency is the Netherlands Antillean guilder (ANG) while the official currency of the French side is the euro (EUR). However, the United States dollar is widely accepted, as are most major credit cards.

What to Eat

Bring your appetite to St. Martin/St. Maarten, because you'll most assuredly put it to good use. Fresh seafood is often the star of many menus here (it is an island, after all), but there is a rich variety of cuisines to be found, from high-end French to Lebanese to Italian to traditional barbecue. Typical Creole dishes often include conch, goat and oxtail. You'll also want to try the island's national liqueur, Guavaberry, made from rum, cane sugar and local, wild guavaberries. A bottle also makes a great souvenir to take home.

Some visitors say the island's dining is some of the best in the Caribbean, especially in the Grand Case area on the French side. Bistrot Caraibes in Grand Case consistently earns rave reviews from diners, who praise both its food and service. The restaurant's signature dish is lobster, a big favorite with repeat diners. La Villa Restaurant , another Grand Case mainstay, is equally praised for its French-Caribbean menu and exceptional service.

If you're looking for a casual meal, try one of the  lolos , or open-air restaurants on the beach (outdoor cooking on large barbecues is very popular here). In the evening, live music is often a staple at these local spots. Recent travelers especially enjoyed the bars and grills along Simpson Bay. The Palms was a particular favorite thanks to its Caribbean and international menu. Popular dishes include the jerk chicken and curry chicken. Izi Ristorant Italiano was also a hit for those passing through Simpson Bay for its variety of Italian classics.

The dual-nation island is just as safe as other island getaways. Crowds are denser in St. Maarten, however, so travelers should exercise common sense when moving around the tourist areas; leave your valuables at home, and only carry small bills. St. Martin and St. Maarten's visitors should also be mindful of the jet blast when watching the planes take off and land at  Maho Bay . Blasts of sand can be powerful depending on where you're standing, and spectators should prepare by bringing a brimmed hat and umbrella, in addition to plenty of sunscreen (the strong winds can make it hard to determine when you're sunburned). For that matter, sunscreen and a hat should always be worn, since the island is located between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator, receiving the full force of the sun. A good pair of sunglasses is also a good idea. 

Getting Around St. Martin - St. Maarten

The best way to get around St. Martin and St. Maarten is in a rental car. But really, outside of walking, just about any means of navigating between the French and Dutch sides of the island is manageable. Having a car will allow you more mobility and you'll find reasonable rental rates. Agencies are clustered on the outskirts of Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM), located in St. Maarten. Unfortunately, traffic can be pretty heinous on both sides. The island buses also cater to tourists and are fairly cheap to ride. If you don't like the idea of waiting on a bus, consider splurging on a taxi. And if you're feeling adventurous you might want to use a scooter; there's nothing like feeling the sea breeze in your hair – ahem, helmet.

Entry & Exit Requirements

You can travel freely between this island's French and the Dutch sides, but you will need to present a passport that has at least six months remaining validity (for the French side) when you first arrive. A valid passport is all that is required to enter the Dutch side. You might also be asked to present your return ticket, proof of sufficient funds for your trip and proof of lodging. For more information on customs, visit the U.S. State Department's  for information on St. Martin here and for St. Maarten here . Tourist visas are not required.

Marigot Harbor sits on the French side of the island.
