St. Maarten

With 37 stretches of sand to explore, all sun-worshippers wanting the ideal beach holiday have hit the jackpot with the destination of St. Maarten. Island luxury will be redefined as soon as you get to the other side of departures, and with miles of towering palm trees and gorgeous vegetation to adventure through, you’re certainly in for a treat with this choice.
   
A wide range of activities are on hand, catering for all travellers. Watersports are in abundance, with canoeing, kayaking and jet-skiing all popular options. If diving is high on your holiday ‘To Do’ list then you’re in luck – there’s plenty of known spots to explore beneath the crystal-clear waves. Marine animals and wildlife can also be admired either up close and personal underwater, or in the many zoos and aquariums that are dotted throughout the area.
   
For a pitstop when feeling peckish, the island’s family-run restaurants are perfect. Expect to see plenty of French delights, along with seafood delicacies that showcase the glorious gastronomy of St. Maarten.

After all this exploring and eating, it’s time to hit the hay. Five-star hotels in the area offer fantastic facilities to aid optimum rest and relaxation. No, doubt you’ll be needing some when you’ve finished a round of golf at Mullet Bay Golf Club or you’ve won a few coins at Casino Royale, both in Maho. With spas, swimming pools and fitness centres all coming as standard, you have the ideal base to discover this island’s true beauty.
   
WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
   
If you’re a budding photographer, or simply love aeroplanes, you’ll adore Princess Juliana International Airport. The holiday begins as soon as you touch down, as magnificent crafts can be found in close proximity thanks to the short runway that, despite its size, manages to cater to large airlines.
