St Martin (SXM)
These 2 islands are a complete contrast to each other despite being only a few hours sail apart. St Martin, despite being tiny is the livliest party island in the Caribbean. Half French and half Dutch this place offers some great restaurants, bars, clubs, live music, and duty free shopping!
Anguilla on the other hand ticks over at a much slower pace and gives off a more traditional Caribbean vibe. Both islands boast some great kite spots.
The trip starts near the airport in the south of St Martin and is a great place to have a few sunset cocktails. If you are keen to get on the water then its a short sail to the spots on the North East corner of the island. Here we spend a few days playing in 3 kite spots. Conditions are flat in the lagoons, waves on the reef and choppy for the downwinder. In the Evenings there is a wide choice of entertainment on offer. Choose between the many beach bars, fine restaurants or local grills.
Anguilla is a 3 hour sail away and we kite in the offshore islands along the west coast. The spots here are only accessible by boat so there are no crowds here. Nightlife is minimal which is often appreciated after coming from St Martin!
