New Haven, CT (PressExposure) May 09, 2009 -- Letâs talk about the local treasures you can find in the St. Maarten Antilles offshore islands. If you want a secluded area and you donât want to be in your Caribbean Condo [http://www.portocupecoy.com/team/cicca-architects] or the French side of the island, then you had best travel to the uninhabited islands nearby. Take a jet ski, or a taxi boat from the Orient Beach to get to the neighboring islands.
Pinel is one of the easiest islands to reach if you are coming from the French side. All you need to do is wait at the ferry dock in French Cul de Sac for a ferry. The trip takes only five minutes and there are ferries that run back and forth the island between the hours of 10 in the morning until 5 pm. Pinel is a nature reserve and the beach is perfect for families and their kids. The great thing about this island is that there are amenities available to the visitor so if you want to lie down and relax while your children splash in the water, you can do so under the shade of an umbrella. This area has also a private beach and hiking around the island is a pleasant experience. Try the homemade banana rum at the Caribuni Restaurant, thereâs certainly nothing like it in Cupecoy.
Green Cay is a small island which is totally deserted and uninhabited. If you are looking for a romantic getaway, or you just want a private area where you can go sun bathing, then this is a great place to be. Unlike Pinel, thereâs nothing in Green Cay (unless you count the goats) that can make you comfortable, so plan ahead. Bring your sun block, plenty of water and a little food especially if youâre planning on staying the whole day.
Tintamarre is a favorite among visitors to cupecoy, st. maarten island. Many boaters from St. maarten Antilles love going to this sheltered bay. This island is famous for its magical mud baths which can make your skin feel silky smooth. Whales and dolphins have also been spotted wandering around this island.
