New Haven, CT (PressExposure) May 13, 2009 -- St Martin Island is an international hub. It has the second busiest airport in the Caribbean after San Juan. Today, there are thousands of visitors coming to the island every year, and st maarten villa [http://www.portocupecoy.com/marina-village] and luxury Vacation Condo have sprouted in the hills in order to accommodate the number of tourists that Sint Maarten / St Martin island is receiving daily.
Every day of the week, visitors can fly to Sint Maarten [http://www.portocupecoy.com/location] from major cities anywhere in the world. There are also a number of St Maarten villa activities that can keep your entertained during your stay!
But one of the major advantages of traveling to St Maarten island is that you donât have to go far if you want to explore new places. Within 36 miles of the island, you will find four other islands in the Caribbean - Anguilla, Saba, St. Barths and St. Eustatius, also known as Statia. To get to these islands, you can book a flight with WinAir, which services each of the islands at several flights a day.
If you want to enjoy the seas, there are also several ferries servicing the islands. To get to Anguilla, there are daily trips from Marigot on the French side. Ferries leave for the island every 30 minutes. To get to St Barths, you can ride any of the two high speed catamarans, the Edge I and Edge II which depart from Pelican Marina in Simpson Bay. Also, these same catamarans go to Saba.
Prickly Pear Cay is another Caribbean island you shouldnât miss visiting. This speck of Caribbean island in the British West Indies is located a couple of minutes away from Anguilla. Its long sandy white beaches are a sight to behold and its three reefs and turquoise waters offer a great temptation to go for a dip. Its shallow waters are perfect for families with little children and its teeming marine life is a treat for those who would like to go snorkeling. Bluebeard Charters at the Simpson Bay offers daily sailing trips n its Heineken Cat to Anguilla and a short snorkeling stop at Prickly Pear Cay.
