Sint Maarten/St. Martin

Dutch Side
Sint Maartin

None of our kind of resorts.

On the Dutch side of the island prostitution is legal and there are eight well known "clubs," or brothels, and more known only to the locals and resort security guards.

Enjoying the white sand and blue watersA room for a half hour will cost around $5 and the companion around $50. Taking her home for the night will include a "Bar Fee" that varies by the club and a separate fee that varies by the girl, the season (high or low) and how close the time is to closing.

There are very few local girls, most come from Colombia, Venezuela and the DR. And most are contracted to the clubs so independents or agency girls are hard to find.

Seamen's Club
On the Oyster Pond to Philipsburg road (Sucker Garden Rd) and Umbrella Cactus Rd.

This is not the original Seamen's, created over a hundred years ago to keep Japanese seamen from raping local women. (That one was removed.) This one is new. Its behind El Capitan, on the same lot. Its nicer inside than El Capitan, just don't walk from one to the other. The ally is notorious for physical violence.

None of our kind of resorts.

The northern side of the island, St. Martin, is controlled by France. It has nude beaches but apparently no "houses." (In France being a prostitute is legal, but just about everything else is not.)

Eros/Crazy Paradise
Open on some Saturdays and occasional holidays.

Gay, cross dressing Cabaret.

Escort Agencies
A Rare Affair
Review April 2012
So far this is the only "agency" we have found on the island. The clubs above will let you take a girl out for a night but you have to go to the club first. A Rare Affair will have the girl meet you. $600-800/night plus a $99 booking fee.

There are many independents working on the island but you have to know somebody who knows one of them. There are no websites, yellow pages ads or ads in the local newspapers.

Caribbean Sex Tours
Review April 2012)
They offer a tour of the "Hot Spots" at $100 for two. They will ask you your interests and try to design the tour to your satisfaction. The guide is well known at ever venue.

Nudist Resorts
Orient Beach Club
Review April 2012
OBC is one of the "four nudists places in the Caribbean". It is not a Swingers/Lifestyle resort but then no one needs to know what goes on in your villa.

General Information

Female providers on both sides of the island must be licensed and are typically examined once a week and their blood tested every 2-3 weeks. There seems to be a circuit between Saint Maarten, Campo Allegre - Curacao and Colombia that many of the girls follow. The rest come from either the Dominican Republic or Eastern Europe.

The island is small, it takes about an hour to drive all the way around, it would take less time if the road was wider. Crossing the border from Dutch to French (or French to Dutch) is so easy you will probably not realize you have. Taxis can be expensive: $40 from the Dutch side airport to Orient Beach, the farthest point away. $25 for a taxi from Philipsburg to Orient Beach. If you plan to leave your resort more than once a day renting a car will be cheaper. If you plan to drive outside the Oyster Pond-Philipsburg-Maho corridor you'll probably feel better with high ground clearance.

"Tourists drive on the right, just like the US. Locals, especially buses and taxis, drive in the center and generally move to the right. The Tourist Board and rental car agents say that any valid driver's license and a credit card will get you a rental car."

The airport on the French side is small and only handles island jumpers.

The most common claim is that Sint Maarten/St. Martin has the best food in the Caribbean. They base this on the fact that they have more restaurants per acre and per person than any other Caribbean island. The food is expensive as they must import most everything. A lunch for two will cost around $50.00 and dinner around $80.00.

What to do out of bed?

The Sea is everywhere and there are hundreds of things to do on, in or under it.

There is a daily regatta with "America's Cup" class sailboats and you can join the crew for a fee.

There are of course many other kinds of boats that you can rent or charter.

And then there is SCUBA, SNUBA, Snorkeling, SeaTrek, Semi Submersible glass bottomed boat, fishing of all kinds, surfing, kite surfing, kayaks, wave runners, etc.

Shopping: Everything is duty free; jewelry, watches, art, souvenirs.

Horseback riding, hiking, Segways, ATVs, paintball, mini car races, ziplines, golf.

Gambling, lots of Casinos on the Dutch side.

Music, discos, 1st class nightclubs, etc.

And the unique sights at the South end of the airport where it either looks like the plane is going to land on the beach or the beach is torn up by exhaust and the ocean is pushed away from the island.

The Sunset Bar and Grill
Where topless women drink for free, and the Driftwood Boat Bar are conveniently located to watch the airport action.
