Our vacations in St. Martin/Sint Maarten, Anguilla and Saba


The Capital of the French part of St. Martin, Marigot, is a small town located at the Caribbean Sea shore. It has a bustling harbour, where ferries leave for the neighboring islands and offers tourists a shopping spree through the duty-free shops or the crafts market on the weekend. Plenty of cafes and open-air restaurants should make any gourmet happy. A spectacular view over the neighboring region is awarded after climbing the steep path to Fort Louis.
