Beach Stroll in St Maarten

Wordless Wednesday
We visited St Maarten . We were on the French side which has been repaired from much of the storm damage. The Dutch quarter was still devastated with roof's caved in and small airplanes turned over or crashed into walls- the effects of Irma were evident more so on the Dutch side.  

The Beach on the French side was beautiful and the local restaurants offered beach chairs, umbrella, bathroom, locker and shower, free Wifi and anywhere from 4-6 beers of drinks for just $20 -- 

Local beer and liquor was plentiful and cheap! 

Many local women walked the beach offering hair braiding, massages, and souvenirs.

    1. Yes, despite the devastation from Irma, they rebuilt and it was still paradise. I understand non of the hotels have re-opened yet.

  10. I have a photo of myself and my husband in front of that same St. Maarten sign from our honeymoon. I was so sad to hear of the destruction from the hurricane; it was such a fun port of call.
