THE ISLAND OF ST. MARTIN
Embracing Our Dual Nationalities
St. Martin is a quaint and culturally-rich island in the French West Indies. It is famous for its beaches and beautiful coastline. The beaches on the French side tend to be more secluded and more conducive to quiet contemplation and privacy. Some are hugged by rugged cliffs and dramatic landscapes, while others are gently shaded by palm trees.
Located along the two best swimming beaches on St. Martin, Grand Case Beach Club features breathtaking views of Anguilla, the most northerly of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles, as well as a unique glimpse of Caribbean culture – we are located in Grand Case, a small fishing village on the northwest coast of French St. Martin. Small wooden pastel-colored houses with elaborate gingerbread facades line the village’s main road provide a captivating atmosphere.
This is the real unpasteurized French Caribbean.
Whether you want spend a day relaxing at one of the gorgeous beaches on St. Martin accompanied by your favorite beverage, or are seeking more active pursuits, there is something for everyone in St. Martin.
Visibility in the waters around the island typically extends for about 100 feet and sometimes can even reach up to 200 feet. There are lessons available for everyone from beginners to advanced scuba divers, while certified divers just need to bring their certification and diving logs to immediately begin exploring St. Martin’s underwater playgrounds. Dive operators for diving lessons and equipment rental are located quite close to Grand Case Beach Club. Windsurfing, water-skiing, stand up paddleboarding and parasailing are other popular activities on St. Martin, and are usually offered at beaches on the island. Equipment rental and lessons tend to be fairly inexpensive, and fun. If you want to explore around the island, sailing, water activities and deep-sea fishing are popular island activities.
St. Martin offers some of the best shopping bargains in the Caribbean. Luxury items from all over the world, including European fashions, Dutch and Japanese electronics and Asian fine arts are available in the island’s duty-free stores. All purchases are tax-free, and, if you hunt around, can be found at bargain prices. The “French side” of the island provides even more shopping opportunities.
There is no better way to work up your appetite than by spending the day exploring our beautiful island. After a day of sun-bathing, swimming and shopping under a warm Caribbean sun you’ll enjoy your evening at one of St. Maarten’s many world-class restaurants. And don’t call it a day just yet! There are plenty of chic nightlife spots to dance the night away and enjoy some island hospitality at its best! There are also more than a dozen amazing casinos just a short ride from our resort. Try your luck at roulette and blackjack or play with the big rollers in a game of Caribbean stud poker.
