Our Island

Our Island

When we say this is a unique Island, we are not exaggerating. It is the smallest land mass shared by two nations. On the South side, you have Dutch Sint Maarten, a country of 16 square miles that is part of the kingdom of The Netherlands. On the Northern side , you have the Collectivité de Saint-Martin (Collectivity of St. Martin) which is an overseas collectivity of France and is 21 square miles. In a blink of an eye, you can visit two countries–each side with its own culture and flavor.

On the French side, relax in one of the many sidewalk cafés or shop for the finest European fashions. Or, try your luck in one of our many casinos on the Dutch side. Throughout the island, you can savor delicious local and international cuisine. If you are cruising, wait until you arrive here to do your shopping–I will be happy to share some of the best kept secret shopping spots with you.

For a small island, we are very cosmopolitan. We boast over 90 nationalities, and at any given moment, you can hear six languages being spoken. We have three currencies in circulation: US Dollar being the “unofficial currency” of both sides, the Euro (on the French) and Antillean Guilders (on the Dutch side).
