St. Martin/Sint Maarten, WI: Surf on French Turf, Splash on Holland’s Half

Feast on gastronomic delights of Parisian proportions, stroll velvety sands and wade in idyllic waves before digging into Dutch culture, consumption and casinos.

Start your day with a cafe au lait and French pastry in Marigot before handpicking one of the island’s two-dozen beaches. Kite-surf, kayak or opt for a hairbraid. Ply deep sands and bodysurf on waves that crash just hard enough to make things interesting.

Once your sea-loving side is sated, steer to the duty-free shops of Philipsburg where brand name items await the debut of your charge card. Swing by the Guavaberry Emporium and pick up a bottle of this locally brewed fruity libation.

Come dusk, head to Grand Case, bustling with restaurants suspended over a dramatically floodlit ocean tide. Slice into steaming fresh lobster masterfully prepared fish at Le Tastevin or the Fish Pot. Cap off the evening with a game of gamble on Dutch soil. If you win tonight, it’s lobster again tomorrow!
