Does your idea of the perfect vacation include delicious food, spectacular beaches, and exceptional shopping? If so, traveling to Sint Maarten is an excellent way to go.

Fodor’s In Focus St. Maarten/St. Martin, St. Barth & Anguilla


Separated by just a few miles and known as favorites of American travelers, the Caribbean islands of St. Maarten/St. Martin, St. Barthélemy (also known as St. Barth’s), and Anguilla couldn’t be more different. Dutch St. Maarten offers big resorts, extensive shopping, and vibrant casinos, while French St. Martin is a bit more low-key, with excellent dining options and smaller, charming hotels; both sides share excellent beaches and offer a wide range of outdoor activities.
