Points of Interest In St. Martin

Although French St. Martin attracts a large amount of European travelers to its shores, the island's tourism networks is heavily promoting itself to the North American market. And why not? Aside from the European flavors that permeate the island's sites & sounds, there are so many glorious beaches, interesting events and terrific hotels.
St. Martin's capital city is not as commercial or crowded as its sister city, Philipsburg, on the Dutch side of the island. The Saturday morning market fills the tropical air with excitement and activity - enjoy a varied choice of cafes during your shopping spree.
French Cul-de-Sac
Situated in the hills above Marigot and nestled within a cluster of red -iled houses is a lovely colonial mansion that is home to the Mayor of St. Martin. Shuttle boats depart from the beach Islet Pinel.
This lovely settlement was the island's original French and is the present home of the respected artist, Roland Richardson.
Baie Longue
Arguably the best beach on the island. Terrific snorkeling and swimming.
Baie Rouge
Backed by high cliffs this beautiful sandy beach is, thankfully, unblemished by the sight of towering resorts. A secluded haven but watch out for the sometimes choppy waters.
Orient Beach
Leave your swim suit at the hotel... Ilet Pinel: This small island just off the coast is ideal for picnicking, swimming and getting away from the crowds.
Grand Case Bay
In and around this charming Bay, your choice of activities include beaches, beaches, beaches . . . and a nice assortment of quality ethnic restaurants.
