An Insider’s Guide to St. Maarten/St. Martin: Tips and Tricks from Locals

St. Maarten/St. Martin, a vibrant Caribbean gem, is an island of dual personalities. Welcoming travelers with its sun-kissed beaches and crystal-clear waters, it’s a destination that invites exploration. At Red Baron Charters, we embody the spirit of this island, offering a local’s perspective on how to uncover the true heart of St. Maarten/St. Martin. From hidden coves to the best street food, our insider guide will help you experience the island like a local.

Discover the Island’s Best-Kept Secrets

Embarking on a catamaran charter with Red Baron Charters is more than a trip; it’s an initiation into the secrets of the island. Here’s what the locals suggest:

  • Hidden Beaches: Skip the crowded shores. Ask our crew about sailing to secluded beaches where the sands are untouched and the tranquility is palpable.
  • Local Eats: Savor the authentic flavors. We recommend stopping at the lolo’s, small, open-air eateries, where grilled lobster and Johnny cakes are always on the menu.
  • Cultural Festivals: Time your visit with local festivals for a burst of Caribbean music, dance, and tradition. The St. Maarten Carnival in April is an explosion of color and calypso not to be missed.

Sailing with Insight

Aboard our catamarans, you’ll gain insights into the island’s best sailing spots. Whether it’s the perfect spot for snorkeling or the ideal time to catch the sunset, our experienced crew knows the waters like the back of their hand.

Tips for Seamless Island Adventures

  • Stay Connected: While it’s tempting to disconnect, having a local SIM card can help you navigate the island and discover local events.
  • Currency Savvy: On this dual-nation island, both Euros and Guilders are accepted, but dollars are king. Our tip? Carry a bit of each to enjoy both sides of the island.
  • Respect the Sun: The Caribbean sun is fierce. Locals swear by reef-safe sunscreen and staying hydrated – especially when out on the water with us.
