Ports

Sint Maarten is a small country in the Caribbean, located on the island of Saint Martin and a constituent of the Netherlands. The capital is in the town of Philipsburg. Tourism is the main branch of economy here, with beautiful beaches, tropical climate and plenty of activities. The island is famous for its airport, whose runway ends near a popular beach.

Fort-de-France is the capital of Martinique, a curious mixture of European and Caribbean temperament and has a wonderful climate. It is one of the largest cities in the Caribbean, so you’ll find plenty to see and do as you explore the streets. But don’t limit yourself to the city – Martinique is stunning in its beauty, with rainforests, dormant volcanoes, and beaches in all sizes. Wearing a Panama hat is allowed, and don’t forget to sample the local cuisine… it’s like ‘ouh-la-la’, but with rum!
