Located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea is the island of St. Maarten. It covers 37 square miles, and Dutch & French are the official languages, although English is spoken everywhere.
The island has many sights and attractions to visit. It offers activities such as hiking, mountain biking, climbing, tennis, and those are only onshore. Aquatic activities like snorkeling,parasailing, renting wave runners, or riding on the banana boat are great fun. You could spend hours in the countless shops and boutiques on the island.
When I was in St. Maarten, my family and I escaped to the beach to relax. We decided on Orient Beach. It was a clothing optional beach which seemed to be the only draw back (since most of the nude people were over the age of 60). The water was a beautiful blue, and the sand was a blistering hot white, like most in the world.
With all the things St. Maarten has to offer, I could see no reason why anyone would not want to visit.
