One of my favourite Caribbean islands is definitely Saint Martin / Sint Marteen.
This island is split in 2: one side is Dutch and the other side is French.
When it comes to nightlife, I definitely prefer the Dutch side and here I will describe a couple of reasons behind it...
An al fresco nightclub that brings a little Miami flavour to St. Maarten. Bliss is practically on the beach, with wooden decks, cabana lounges, cushioned seating, and a heated wading pool to get the youngish crowd in a mellow frame of mind. When the nightly entertainment (live performers or DJs spinning tunes) kicks in, most often post-midnight, the crowd is up on its feet. 'Place-to-be' type of thing...
2. Pineapple Pete
Wildly popular, Pineapple Pete has pool tables, a dance floor, live bands almost every night, and a great menu of both casual pub fare and finer food like crab stuffed shrimp and lobster thermidor - why not?!
Popular with locals and tourists, it's a fab place to have a couple of drinks during the week and on weekends. It's a dance club so put on your dancing shoes and go with it!
I am working on a full post on this island! Stay tuned! xoxo
