  • 'St Martin (Sint Maarten)' chapter
  • Directory, Transportation, Health, Language and Glossary chapters

This island is shared by the French and the Dutch, and has two very distinct personalities. At times they work as one, but in other instances they become a caricature of themselves by exaggerating the traits that make them unique.

This guide is the result of research by dedicated authors and local experts who immersed themselves in St Martin, finding unique experiences, and sharing practical and honest advice, so you come away informed and amazed. This guide includes up-to-date reviews of the best places to stay, eat, sights, cultural information, maps, transport tips and a few best kept secrets - all the essentials to get to the heart of St Martin.

Coverage includes:

  • Understanding St Martin, History, Culture, Landscape & Wildlife, Directory A-Z, Getting There & Away, Getting Around
