Contemporary chic shores

Like the split personality of the island itself—half Dutch, half French—a sailing holiday in St. Martin offers a perfect blend of easy island hopping to bustling bays and adventurous open-water passages to remote shores.

Rivalling the British Virgin Islands as the most popular sailing destination in the Caribbean, your sailing holiday to St. Martin can include everything from designer shopping, bright casinos and vibrant nightlife to fine dining, unspoilt beaches and celebrity watching.

Dive among the natural reefs, sunken ships and tropical fish around St. Kitts, drop your anchor at St. Barts for elegant boutiques or head for postcard-perfect Anse de Colombier to swim and snorkel the remote, shimmering waters of its horseshoe-shaped bay. St. Martin's neighbouring islands offer remote, unspoilt anchorages, secluded Caribbean coves and kaleidoscope reefs, making your St. Martin sailing holiday the perfect getaway.

Suggested bareboat itineraries

Fancy an adventure with long, challenging sails and wide-open Caribbean waters? Or maybe just a quick hop to a deserted island?
