The island of Sint Maarten is located south of Anguilla and can be split up in two parts. In the north you will find the French St Martin while southern Sint Maarten is part of the Netherlands Antilles.

Both parts have their own capital and you can easily travel from one part of the island to the other. We started our journey in the North, in Marigot, the capital city of Saint Martin.

Marigot is the largest city on Saint Martin and a real Caribbean seaside town. The local markets, held every Wednesday and Saturday, are great for buying ingredients, fresh products, beautiful fruit or hand made souvenirs.

Back from our trip we headed south to Philipsburg, the capital of St. Maarten and part of the Netherlands Antilles. Philipsburg is a beautiful town with gorgous houses and stunning beaches.

After a few days in town you can also decide to explore the beaches on the South eastern part of the island like Maho Beach which is beautiful. Simpson Bay is also great if you want to go for a sailboat ride or if you're simply looking for gorgeous views.
