Photo Essay -St. Martin

For the last 13 years we have come to discover, nay fall in love with, a variety of the beautiful islands of the Caribbean.  Some offer a wealth of pristine beaches, others feature more dining and casino options, and yet all seem to have a wealth of abundant sunshine and tropical weather.  But, some things just seem to fit like Cinderella’s slipper.

For us, we continue to find we are drawn to the variety that St. Maarten/St. Martin has to offer.  After fifteen (15) visits, we now feel like we are slipping into a routine as soon as we disembark.  From a variety of nightlife options, to it’s wealth of gastronomic offerings, to its gorgeous beaches and landscapes, its 37 square miles has a great balance of what you seek in a vacation getaway.  Follow along as we offer a photographic glimpse at The Friendly Island!
