The French side is well known for its beautiful villas, exceptional food and lots of privacy. We have some great villas to buy and rent on the French Side, St. Martin.


Orient Bay Beach is located on the French Side, St. Martin on the North-East side. It’s one of the more popular beaches on the island with its watersports, beach restaurants and the all-natural section on the south end.


Carib Beer is a staple in St. Martin and the rest of the Caribbean. You will absolutely take a picture on the beach holding one of these golden and blue bottles. It’s an easy to drink, refreshing beer that is perfect to drink while laying out. Drink Responsibly.


Ti Punch, pronounced “Tee Paunch” is the Caribbean’s Old Fashioned. It’s small but mighty. It really packs a “paunch!” Want to make one for yourself? It’s pretty simple. 2 Ounces of Rhum Agricole (dark or light), 1 bar spoon of cane syrup, 1 lime wedge. That’s it. Drink it slow and drink it carefully.


St. Martin / St. Maarten is the perfect island for a jet ski tour. See the island from an entirely new perspective and enjoy the speed and power while flying over the waves. Contact our concierge to plan your perfect jet ski tour!
