Saint Martin is a glorious little island of low rolling hills, amazing beaches and warm seas located in the northeast Caribbean Sea. The island is the smallest bi-national territory on Earth, 87 km² divided in two parts: Up north the French side, down south the Dutch side . The Dutch Sint Maarten is dominated by duty-free shopping, casinos, cruiseship tourism and great night life. The French Saint Martin emphasizes on nature, comfort, elegance, luxury, pristine beaches and the finest gourmet cuisine. FBC St. Martin is situated on the French side to the east of the island in the heart of a peaceful and protected natural reserve where mangroves, turquoise water and white sand mix in total harmony (Baie du Galion - Coconut Grove). Compared to the lively nearby Orient Bay there are no jet skis or motor boats here. The spot is a classic tropical paradise, and has been voted the best beach on the island. The eastern coast of St. Martin is exposed to almost constant trade winds.
The sea is always warm (around 27 degrees all year) and the water idyllically clear. All this water means endless water sports and water based activities can be experienced all around the island. Land sports feature highly too, with all terrain off-road guided tours, horse riding, tennis, golf and dedicated mountain bike trails. Finally – St. Martin is also renowned for fine cuisine. Whether dining in gourmet restaurants or the BBQ roadside shacks or “Lolos” - you will find something to satisfy all palates and wallets! J
