Beaches

All the beaches on Saint Maarten have public access. Some are deserted, but many have both beach bars as well as activities and often a variety of water sport equipment rental. You need never visit the same beach twice, unless you want to of course. You can spend the morning at one beach, eat lunch and then visit a second beach for the afternoon and sunset.
 

Duty Free Shopping

A duty free port, SXM has some great bargain shopping.  The many stores along Front Street in Phillipsburg have a large selection of beautiful jewelry and watches.  Phillipsburg also has a beautiful, long boardwalk on a lovely beach. You can swim and shop and go to happy hour all in one spot.  The Greenhouse, at the east end of the boardwalk has a daily Happy Hour with a great selection of appetizers and drinks.  

Margot, on the French side, has European designer shopping as well as a large outdoor market.  There is a bi-weekly fish market, Wednesdays and Saturdays where you can buy the fish from the fishermen.  You need to go early as all the locals use this market too and the fish come in as early as 7 am.  This is also where you can get the ferry to Anguilla for a day trip. 
 

Excursions

Saint Maarten has many excursions available from sailing on a 10 meter America's Cup yacht to a tour on a Pirate Ship. Fishing, sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, jet skiing, snorkeling and scuba diving and para sailing are all easily accessible on the island. There is an activity for everyone.

A five minute drive from Fiddler's Green is the best baby beach on the island, Galion Beach/Coconut Grove. Coco Lobo, we affectionately call it, is just past the Butterfly Farm.  The Butterfly Farm is the place to witness an impressive display as the butterflies break out of their cocoons in the early mornings. 
Coco Lobo is also a popular kite sailing and windsurfing local.  There is always exciting to watch at this beach. 
 

Entertaining

Fiddlers Green has spacious living areas including a dinning room table that seats 12.  This feature allows everyone to come together in the evening to share their various adventures.   The villa has a beautiful view across the ocean to the twinkling lights of St. Barths so even at night the view is spectacular.

About the Owner

 

  Born in the USA, we moved to Montreal, Canada in the 1960's. We have the splendid privilege to enjoy some of the best skiing on the East coast and then fly down to St Martin (Saint Maarten) to some of the best beaches in the Caribbean! Building our own house meant that we can travel with our dogs too.
