Traveling to St. Martin

Saint-Martin / Sint Maarten
Preparing my Trip

You can travel to St. Martin via airplane at one of the two airports, Princess Juliana International Airport on the Dutch side of the island and Grand Case Esperance Airport, a regional airport, located on the French side of the island. There are daily direct flights to St. Martin from the U.S., Europe, Canada, South America and other neighboring Caribbean islands.

You can also travel to St. Martin by boat, whether it be a private yacht, charter boat or ferry. There are daily ferries to and from Anguilla from Marigot and Simpson Bay. Or head over to St. Barth on the Voyager, a high-speed ferry, departing from Marigot or Oyster Pond straight to Gustavia in just 30 minutes! The island boasts many marinas and is a very popular destination for cruising and sailing. Many cruise ships visit the island on a weekly basis, docking at the Port of St. Maarten in Philipsburg.

You will need a passport to travel to and from St. Martin but rest assured that you can travel freely between the island’s French and Dutch sides. A tourist visa is not required to enter the island, but a return ticket is required unless you are of Dutch or French nationality.
