COUNTRY GUIDE
Saint Martin

Located in the northeast Caribbean Sea, Saint Martin is an island that is home to over 77,000 people, and covers 87 square kilometres near other islands such as Anguilla, Gustavia, Basseterre, and the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. The island is divided between the French Republic and the Kingdom of the Netherlands, making it the world’s smallest inhabited island divided between two countries.

The French portion of the island in the north is known as Saint-Martin, while the Dutch portion in the south is known as Sint Maarten. Forests, mountainous areas, valleys, and beaches make up the majority of the island, and there are no rivers located here. Saint Martin’s dry season normally ranges from around January to April, and the rainy monsoon season takes place from around August to December.

English is commonly spoken on both sides of the island, although other languages used here include French, Dutch, Spanish, Papiamento, and an English-based creole local dialect. Tourism is popular here, and the island is also home to many ex-pats from around the world.

The most common ways to travel to the island are by flying into the Princess Juliana International Airport or by taking a cruise ship. Many people now travel around the island via public transportation, due to increasing traffic jams in larger communities.
