Gay St Martin

St Martin,
French West Indies

St Martin, French West Indies.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

The smallest island in the world ever to have been partitioned between two different nations, St. Martin/St. Maarten has been shared by the French and the Dutch in a spirit of neighborly cooperation and mutual friendship for almost 350 years. The border is almost imperceptible and gay and lesbian travelers cross back and forth without ever realizing they are entering a new country. All the same, each side has managed to retain much of the distinctiveness of its own national culture.
When it comes to accommodation,

St. Maarten/St. Martin has a range of gay friendly accommodations to suit almost every gay and lesbian traveler’s budget or particular needs, right across the spectrum. The island boasts everything from gay friendly 5 star, first class, world-renowned hotels to charming little guesthouses, all-inclusive resorts and luxurious vacation villas. Many hotels are located close to or directly on the beach or have swimming pools, or both. A number of larger resorts on the Dutch side have their own casinos, restaurants and nightclubs right on the premises. On some resorts, gay and lesbian travelers never have to leave except to go sightseeing.

The French side, St Martin, tends to emphasize comfort and elegance. The beaches are secluded, the luxury resorts provide lavish accommodations, and the restaurants offer the finest dining experiences anywhere in the Caribbean. The latest French fashions can be found in many of the shops, and the smell of fresh croissants and pastries mixes everywhere with the spicy aromas of West Indian cooking. Small cafés and charming bistros add a decidedly Gaelic and cosmopolitan flair to the place. On the whole the atmosphere remains very relaxed.
On the other hand, the Dutch side, St. Maarten with its busy cruise port and bustling commercial district has long been an active center for trade and tourism. More developed and at the same time more informal, it is very Dutch in flavor and still has strong ties with fellow compatriots in the other Netherlands Antilles. Between the two different cultures in St. Martin and St. Maarten, vacationers will be able to find just about every kind of activity they might want for a perfect holiday in the sun.

So, for a truly Caribbean vacation offering rest, relaxation, sun and sea, fun, excellent cuisine with a unique European flavor, then St Martin/ St Maarten has it all for the gay and lesbian traveler.
