Strangely enough, without really meaning to, this dual-nation island has become one of my most visited Caribbean destinations. Its role as an air hub has led to many visits over the years on the way to somewhere else. Yet, I never miss the chance to stay for a few days on this vibrant, sometimes busy, but always entertaining island.
There is so much to see and do on the island, from the great beaches (and duty-free shopping) of the Dutch side to the fabulous restaurants of Grand Case and the charm of Marigot on the French side. You are sure to find something that will appeal to you.
