St. Martin, a gem in the Caribbean, is a unique island split between French and Dutch territories. Its French side, known for its pristine beaches, gourmet dining, and vibrant culture, is a must-visit destination. We at Red Baron Charter, located at Dock Maarten, Juancho Yrausquin Blvd, Philipsburg, St. Maarten, are thrilled to share our insights into exploring this beautiful part of the island.
1. Discover Hidden Beaches on a Catamaran Tour
One of the best ways to experience St. Martin’s stunning coastline is on a catamaran. Our tours offer a unique perspective of hidden beaches and coves that are inaccessible by land. Imagine gliding over crystal-clear waters and anchoring at secluded spots like Anse Marcel Beach, a haven of tranquility and natural beauty. Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture these picturesque scenes!
2. Indulge in Gourmet French Cuisine
St. Martin is known as the “Gastronomic Capital of the Caribbean,” and for good reason. The French side of the island boasts an array of restaurants serving authentic French cuisine. From freshly baked croissants to exquisite seafood dishes, the culinary delights here are sure to tantalize your taste buds. Don’t miss the chance to dine in Grand Case, a small town famous for its gourmet restaurants and cozy bistros.
3. Experience Vibrant Cultural Festivities
The rich cultural tapestry of St. Martin is evident in its numerous festivals and events. The French side, in particular, celebrates its heritage with gusto.

4. Explore Marigot, the Charming Capital
Marigot, the capital of the French side, is a delightful blend of Caribbean charm and French sophistication. Stroll through its open-air markets, where you can find everything from fresh produce to artisanal crafts. Visit the historic Fort Louis for panoramic views of the island, or relax in one of the chic cafés along the waterfront.
