While it’s officially known as ‘The Friendly Island’, there’s no shortage of other nicknames that could apply to the eastern Caribbean island of St. Maarten. Perhaps ‘The International Island,’ given that St. Maarten is owned by the Netherlands, while France governs the north side and calls it St. Martin (yes, it can get a tad confusing). Its endless stretches of golden and white sand beaches could earn it the moniker ‘The Sun-Soaked Island’, or how about ‘The Culinary Capital of the Caribbean’; with more than 140 different nationalities registered, there are dozens of cuisines to choose from which makes it foodie heaven.
