If you’re looking for a petite island that has the essence of European charm with the perfection of Caribbean beaches, a St. Martin honeymoon and a St. Maarten honeymoon are perfect for you!
St. Martin and St. Marteen Honeymoon
A St. Martin honeymoon and a St. Maarten honeymoon are a perfect blend of two cultures in one honeymoon destination. Phillipsburg is the capital on the Dutch side and Marigot is the capital on the French side, both of which offer excellent duty-free shopping with small boutiques and craft bazaars selling straight from Europe.
Foodies will love the excellent selection of haute cuisine on offer in Marigot and Grand Case with French flair and a spice of Creole flavour mixed in.
This island is small enough to explore on foot along the hiking trails that promise breathtaking views but many choose to pack a picnic and hire a bicycle or even gallop along the sands on horse-back. Both sides of the island have their own distinct identity that makes exploring fun as you experience the entertainment and action of the Dutch and the tranquility and beautiful nature of the French.
If you want to explore further on your honeymoon, a St. Martin honeymoon offers the chance to find your own piece of deserted paradise on a number of nearby islands, some of which are completely uninhabited. Head to Tintamarre to swim with Parrotfish or Pinel for hikes with a view & lobster to finish or even take a trip over to neighboring islands of Anguilla or St Barts.
When to Go
The most popular time to travel on a St. Martin honeymoon or a St. Maarten honeymoon is mid-December to mid-April when there is less humidity and westerly trade winds but it can be harder to find a deal at this time. Hurricane season runs from July to November and many hotels will close. Mid-April to June is a great mix of less crowds, excellent weather and deals on hotels.
