Saint Martin

Saint Martin Sailing Holidays

Saint Martin, known as the “Friendly Island”, is the smallest island in the world to be shared by two different nations – the French and the Dutch. Here you can find two very different cultures. On the French side, visit the best French restaurants, cafes and bistros, as well as luxury resorts. Stay in touch with the latest French fashion in a very relaxed atmosphere. On the Dutch side you will find casinos and night clubs with a more party atmosphere. Both sides offer you 37 beaches, as well as numerous opportunities to snorkel, scuba dive, hike and kayak.

Say hello to this tropical paradise and create sailing memories.
