When you think of St. Maarten/St. Martin, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Is it the pristine beaches, the crystal-clear waters, or the diverse marine life? Well, the wonders of this captivating island go far beyond the sea. In fact, it boasts some of the most scenic hiking trails and lush nature reserves waiting to be explored.
For adventure-seekers and nature enthusiasts, here are the top 5 hiking trails and nature reserves that should be on your St. Maarten/St. Martin bucket list.
Starting with the iconic “Pic Paradis“, the highest point on the island. A hike up this majestic peak provides panoramic views of the entire island, neighboring islands, and on clear days, the distant mountains of Puerto Rico. Two well-marked trails of moderate difficulty will guide you through dense rainforest before revealing the breathtaking vista at the summit.
Next, we have the “Loterie Farm” nestled on the slopes of Pic Paradis. This private nature reserve is a true ecological wonder. Embark on an adventurous hike along the scenic trails and end with a relaxing swim in the hidden forest pool.
The “Seaside Nature Park” is another must-visit destination. Perfect for a family outing, the park offers various trails that lead to the beautiful shoreline, where you can explore the sea life in tidal pools or simply bask in the sun.
The “Paradise Peak” trail, while challenging, is undoubtedly rewarding. As the second highest peak, the trail weaves through lush vegetation to a stunning overlook of the island’s landscapes and the shimmering Caribbean Sea.
Lastly, “Mango Avenue” trail in the Colombier region on the French side is a gentle walk through verdant mango plantations, culminating in a charming beach ideal for a post-hike picnic.
