If there are any vacationers wanting to explore the history of their holiday destination, St Martin is one of the most unique you are likely to come across! It is the smallest land mass in the world to be occupied by two different nations. 37 square miles are shared between the Dutch in the south and the French in the north. There is no real border between the two and this is one of St Martin’s successes, giving a gloriously relaxed feel to the island. The Concordia agreement, established over 350 years ago to outline the islands nationality, has ended up being the oldest, active, undisputed contract of peaceful co-existence in the world.
If as oppose to, or as well as history and dining you are searching for adventure, St Martin will also not disappoint. Why not try snorkelling your way around the coral in the shadows, admiring the colourful sea life. There are beaches and bays on both sides of the island where you can frolic with the fish in reasonably shallow waters for beginners, and equally for those more experienced snorkelers the islands offshore reefs provide a thicker density of coral and marine life.
St Martin is a tropical, sunny, duty free shopping paradise by day, being reborn by night into a medley of entertainment and partying options. There are countless after dark spots for an unforgettable night out. You can find bars, clubs, pubs, exotic entertainment, glitzy casinos and a plethora of local entertainment.
