Where is the only place you can drive from France to Holland without passing through Belgium?

St. Maarten!

We spent a total of 5 days on St. Maarten, but it actually was not enough. There are many interestng things to see, many different area to eat, and 36 different beaches. We really enjoyed St. Maarten and wish we had had more time there to do some island hopping, as St. Maarten makes a great base to visit the nearby islands of St. Barts, Anguilla, and Saba. We enjoyed St. Maarten so much that we stayed right there exploring it, but we'd go back someday.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great island and great base for island hopping
  • Cons:none
  • In a nutshell:A great island to spend a week, or more
