The Destination
Divided in practice and in theory by distinct French and Dutch territories, the 40-square-mile island of Saint-Martin/Sint Maarten is nevertheless a fusion of cultures. The Dutch side of the island is home to more resorts and casinos than the bars and bistros of its French counterpart—yet both have access to some of the best white sand beaches in the Caribbean. Marvel at bright neon fish swimming just out of reach during an offshore snorkeling excursion, or catch the warm breeze in your sail during a windsurfing session in Orient Bay. French and Caribbean flavors intertwine at casual, open-air restaurants near the sea in Saint-Martin, and at night, a hop into Sint Maarten for gambling and dancing will keep energies high.

The Digs
Overlooking the Caribbean Sea from a perch on Saint-Martin's Mount Vernon, Hotel - Appartement SXM is an enclave of fully furnished apartments just steps from the beach. The suites feature satellite television, air conditioning, well-equipped kitchenettes, and comfortable queen-size beds. Enjoy breakfast on the terrace overlooking the lagoon, then depart for a day of horseback riding above the surf, hiking into the mountains, or simply napping on the warm sands of the Friendly Island.

The Diversions
• Take a guided hike inside Loterie Farm
• Swim in the secluded waters of Petites Cayes Beach
• Go horseback riding on the beach with Lucky Stables
• Place your bets at Casino Royale
• Have a drink and watch planes land at Sunset Bar & Grill

  • "Noticeably devoid of casinos and skyscraping timeshares, the quieter French side [of Saint Martin] is a charming mix of white-sand beaches, cluttered town centers, and stretches of bucolic mountainside."
