Spring Break 2017
Our spring break 2017 took us this year once again to the beautiful Caribbean islands. Since we had limited time only and wanted to see as much as possible , I chose three islands/ four territories in a close proximity to each other Sint Maarten/ St. Martin, Anguilla and St. Barthelemy aka St. Barths.
Our main base was Sint Maarten, Dutch island famous for its casinos, night life, great restaurants, countless beaches, where everyone speaks English, dollar is widely accepted and the electricity is 110V. We stayed at the Sonesta Great Bay Adults Only All Inclusive Resort, Casino and Spa. The hotel is very located on the Great Bay Beach (one of the nicest in the island) and offers an amazing view of the bay with 2-4 different cruise ships daily arriving and departing.
From the “Sonesta Great Bay Resort and Casino” we took our day trips :
Day1 – Tour of the island -Dutch Sint Maarten/French St.Martin.
Orient Beach – Clothing optional Kontiki Beach
Mao Beach and planes landing at Princess Juliana International Airport.
Day 2 – The island of Anguilla
Just 25 minute speed catamaran cruise takes you to a British island , where everyone drives on the left side of the street, there are the most beautiful white sand beaches and the bluest blue water, small boutique hotels and restaurants serving amazing food. We spent our day on one of top 10 most beautiful beaches – Shoal Beach, where we had reserved lounge chairs, hammocks, snorkeling equipment and delicious lunch.

Day 3 – The island of St. Barthelemy aka St. Barths
This French island can be reached in 45 minute away by speedy catamaran on quite choppy waters. Once there we are instantly transported to “South of France like” surroundings. Very many celebrities chose to buy their vacation properties here. Everyone speaks French, the currency is Euro ( but dollar is accepted) and pretty much all prices are super high.
