The division of the island of St. Martin

The island is divided into two parts: a Dutch part called Sint Maarten and a French part called Saint-Martin.

While the Dutch part is busier and more commercial, the French part is quieter, more intimate and less populated.

The French part is larger and makes up about 60% of the island, but only 40% of the population lives there.

  • The capital of the Dutch part - Philipsburg
  • The capital of the French part - Marigot

The border is marked at all points where roads cross it, but passage for all cars and pedestrians is completely unrestricted.

Geography

Saint Martin is a hilly island, but the highest mountains only reach heights between 300 and 420 metres.

The coastline is rugged with many shallow and small bays, and the westernmost part, where SXM airport is located, is made up of two elongated peninsulas, which were artificially created into an island by digging water channels into the Simpson Bay lagoon.

Most of the island's surface is either towns or forested mountains.

The northern and eastern parts of the island lie in the lee of the mountains and are considerably drier.
