Book cheap car hire on St Martin to discover the 2 halves of this fascinating Caribbean island. Whether you visit the French north or the Dutch south, St Maarten is sure to captivate you.
The sun-drenched island of Saint Martin (also known as St Maarten or Sint Maarten) is not only a glorious island but also one of the most unique holiday destinations in the entire world. This is because the north side of the island is an outpost of France, while the south side embraces the relaxing culture of the Dutch. Despite this, the border is virtually non-existent and the two sides live quite happily without worrying about it.
Best known for Maho Bay beach which is located at the end of Princess Juliana Airport’s runway, the island’s other beaches offer wonderful water and excellent facilities without the risk of being blown off your feet by the slipstream!

Perhaps more fashionable than the Dutch side, St Martin is home to the gorgeous and ever popular Baie Orientale.
Land at the Princess Juliana Airport, or Sint Maarten Airport as it is also known, and you will be right in the centre of the Dutch side of this wonderful Caribbean island.
