Since 1645, two nations have shared this one small island. To the north Saint-Martin, to the south Sint Maarten – a simple stone monument is all that marks where they meet. Begin your journey on the Dutch side, passing through bustling Philipsburg – the capital – that took its name in 1763 from founder John Philips, a Scottish captain of the Royal Netherlands Navy. Across the border in French capital Marigot, life moves at a much gentler pace. If the local market is open, browse the treats on offer, stroll along the waterfront or through the picturesque streets lined with inviting pavement cafés and shops.
