Saint Martin is located in the northeastern Caribbean Sea. The island is divided between France and the Netherlands, with the Dutch side having the largest population. It is one of the four countries of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Its French side is known for its shopping, clothing, beaches and rich Indian and French-Caribbean cuisine. The Dutch side of the island is known for exotic drinks made from the local rum-based guava wine, exotic beaches, jewelry, festive nightlife and huge casinos.
St. Martin has a total of 36 beaches and each beach has its own atmosphere. Some beaches have high waves and are suitable for surfers, while some beaches are suitable for children because they are quiet. Most of St. Martin's beaches are populated by tourists, especially honeymooners. Some beaches are small and located on rocky cliffs. On the other hand, some of its beaches are very long. The most common and interesting thing on all beaches is white sand and transparent water.
