An Action-Packed Island
Vacationers get a good bang for their buck on the lively island of St.
Martin/St. Maarten. Its selection of vacation activities is endless: dutyfree
shopping, casinos (on the Dutch side), discos, golf, almost limitless
water sports, and fine restaurants await those looking for action. Miles
of sun-drenched beaches appeal to the more indolent vacationer. The
Dutch and French halves of the island along with the nearby islands of
Anguilla and St. Barthelemy present a lot of different cultures available
to sample on a single vacation.
