Saint Martin is a Caribbean island, divided into a Dutch part and a French part. Its warm climate will help you adjust to the pace of life on the island, but if you want to do more than sip piña coladas, you’ll find plenty to do. Visit the old fort St. Louis, overlooking Marigot bay, the French Quarter (Orleans), and Paradise Peak. Or stand at Princess Juliana Airport where you can nearly touch the planes as they fly over you. Discover the beautiful beaches of Simpson Bay and swim in the ocean.
Hamilton is the capital city of the Bermuda – British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean. It is the major port and financial center, and provides for an excellent starting point for excursions. You can enjoy one of the Caribbean beaches to relax or do water sports, or you can go on an island trip. Visit the Gibb’s Hill Lighthouse for beautiful vistas and discover the unique Crystal & Fantasy Caves. Fort Hamilton and the Cathedral are testament to the islands’ long and rough history.
