St. Maarten is a beautiful island located in the Caribbean. It is considered a part of French and Dutch territory (the French "own" the North and the Dutch "own" the South). It is home to about 38,000 people and is about 13 square miles in area.
St. Maarten is a big destination on many cruises. I have been here twice on the two cruises I went on, once in 2006 and again in 2007. It's beaches are breathtaking and the clear, turquoise water is an incredible sight to see. Not only that, but it is very warm and a lot of fun to swim in!
There isn't much to do here aside from go to the beach and do a little bit of shopping, but it is definitely somewhere I would love to go again and would recommend to anyone!
