About Sint Maarten
St. Maarten stands out as an island where Caribbean island culture combines with a cosmopolitan atmosphere. It holds the record for being the smallest territory in the world ever to have been partitioned between two nations; this island has been harmoniously shared by The Netherlands and France for over 350 years. Sint Maarten is one of the five Dutch Caribbean island territories within the Kingdom of the Netherlands and is one of the leeward (northern) Caribbean islands, located approximately 150 miles southeast of Puerto Rico. The French part (roughly 2/3 of the island’s surface) stands for European sophistication with its secluded beaches, open air markets and shops, lining the waterfront in Mediterranean style. The Dutch part bustles with a combination of lively beaches, hotels, (duty–free) shops, casinos and a vibrant nightlife.
