Half-Dutch, half-French, St. Martin offers a blend of easy island hopping, to bustling days and adventurous, open-water passages to remote shores such as St. Barts and Anguilla. The vacation could include everything from designer shopping to fine dining, unspoiled beaches and sun-kissed sailing to surrounding islands. You may also want to dive among the natural reefs, sunken ships and tropical fish, or snorkel the shimmering waters full of marine life. St. Martin is a classic Caribbean sailing ground with a cosmopolitan European twist.
The Leeward islands that include St. Martin are constantly cooled by Trade Winds, making it comfortable to visit them at any time of the year. The easterly winds blow at 15-20 knots, lighter in the summer months.
