St. Martin Sailing Itinerary

White-sand shores, vibrant town plazas, and stretches of rustic countryside

Why Sail our St Martin Sailing Itinerary?

St. Martin is the perfect destination to experience two countries in one trip.

The northern French half evokes a more distinctly European feel with its cafes and French-speaking populace. Here you can enjoy a more secluded atmosphere, you can walk along miles of remote white sandy beaches as far as the eye can see,  enjoying some well-deserved privacy among picturesque rocky outcrops.

The Dutch half, on the other hand, caters to anyone looking for that festive Caribbean vibe and is where casinos, night clubs, and skyscrapers mingle with spectacular scenery. Our St Martin Sailing itinerary will help you get the most out of your trip.

St Martin is a place of sunshine and serenity, mountains and beaches, surrounded by turquoise waters and hidden coves where you must take advantage of the yachts and sailboats to truly absorb all that this amazing island has to offer.

The Dutch Side. The Dutch side of the island is renowned for its cruise ship industry, and entire towns are centered around duty-free shopping, eating in charming restaurants, and beachside parties. It is also home to the Great Bay, with its relatively calm waters, perfect for water activities. 

The French Side. For a different experience, head up north to the French half, filled with pastry shops, fine dining spots, and secluded beaches, including the official nudist beach of the island – Orient Beach!

Plenty to Do. The island offers 37 beaches along its more than 70 km coastline. Yachting, sailing, snorkeling, diving, or just plain relaxing on the shore… name it, St. Martin will have every water activity that your heart will desire and more.
