St. Maarten (Grand Case)
Open on the Atlantic Ocean or the Caribbean Sea, St. Marteen beaches will amaze you by their diversity. They each have a point in common: the water is idyllically clear and hovers around 27°C all year around, fulfilling the promise of tropical vacation images.
With its hotels right on the beach or overlooking the bay with an extraordinary view on the ocean and the island of St.Barts, Green Cay, Pinel and Tintamarre, Orient Beach is certainly the largest and the most animated beach on St. Martin. Here every water-sport awaits you: windsurf, sailing, water and jet ski, diving, and you will find many different little restaurants offering a variety in refined, exotic or traditional cuisine.
Sint Maarten, the Dutch side, is known for its festive nightlife, fun beaches, and plentiful casinos, while Saint-Martin, the French side, is known more for its world-famous nude beaches, jewelry and clothes shopping, exotic drinks made with native rum-based guavaberry liquors, and rich French Caribbean cuisine.
