Sail on sailor—Sint Maarten is a paradise for Popeyes

Straddling the French and Dutch sides of the island of Sint Maarten, Oyster Pond is a small bay with views overs the Atlantic Ocean. Get your Caribbean dream holiday off to a great start by booking an ocean-view Oyster Pond vacation rental. Nip down for an early morning dip, rent a sailing boat and circumnavigate the island, or hunker down on nearby Dawn Beach with the latest blockbuster. A popular spot with the boating set, it's also a launch point to nearby St. Barts, so expect a glitzy crowd. After dark, head to Captain Oliver's Marina and its buzzy seafood restaurants and beach bars.

Nautical but nice—Oyster Pond's buzzing boating scene

With St. Barts shimmering temptingly in the distance, Oyster Pond is all about life on the water, whether you fancy wearing the captain's hat and skippering your own sailing boat, or being a leisurely passenger on 1 of the many Caribbean cruises (dolphin watching and sunset sails are very popular). The Atlantic side of Sint Maarten is famously windy and the ocean can be rough at times. However, the reef protects the bay and there are several nearby snorkeling spots, like Dawn Beach. As the sun sets, follow the locals for fresh lobster in one of the stylish waterfront restaurants.

From ziplining to treetop cocktails, the world is your Oyster (Pond)

A 20-minute drive from your Oyster Pond vacation rental is Loterie Farm, a former sugar plantation nestled high in the hills of Pic Paradis. This major island attraction is popular with families and offers more than 135 acres of hiking trails, a dizzyingly high treetop walk, a Ti-Tarzan obstacle course, and zip-lining. The family-run nature sanctuary also features a trendy cocktail bar hidden in the trees, plus an upmarket alfresco restaurant for leisurely lunches and romantic dinners as the sun sets over the rainforest.

Don't shiver me timbers, it's year-round sun in Sint Maarten

Sint Maarten in the Dutch Caribbean is renowned for its glorious climate. Boasting a temperate mid-80s throughout the year, you can pretty much guarantee sunshine every day. Even in the wet season, which runs from May to December, showers are usually brief and dry up within moments, but beware, September is peak time for hurricanes. December to April is considered the high season for tourists, when snowbirds flock to escape the cold winters and Oyster Pond vacation rentals get snapped up well in advance.

Another day in Paradise in the Dutch Caribbean

Sandwiched between the French and Dutch sides of Sint Maarten, Oyster Pond lies on the eastern coast, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. While hiking options are often limited on this small Caribbean island, there are 1 or 2 places where you can stretch your legs a little. Across the border in Saint Martin (on the French side) is Pic Paradis, the highest point on the island. Rising more than 1,400 feet above sea-level, it has some of the best views in the region. Pack your walking boots and climb 1 of 2 main trails, both blessed with spectacular views over the rainforest.
