The Ocean Club
On behalf of our island, we welcome you to this small paradise in the Caribbean. Here you will find the best of two worlds! While the Dutch side is more American, the French side offers you a "South of France" atmosphere where you can enjoy the international but very informal ambiance.
The Ocean Club located directly on St. Maarten's world famous
Cupecoy Beach. We offer 1,2,and 3 bedroom villas.
Partly French and partly of Dutch origin makes this island very attractive. Casinos on the Dutch side and typical outdoor terraces on the French side, as if you are in France and Holland at the same time. More than 40 beaches all around the island, including clothes optional OriÃ«nt Beach, plenty of nightlife, hundreds of restaurants and unbelievable duty free shopping.
Excursions to nearby islands such as Anguilla, St. Barths, St. Kitts, Nevis, Saba and Statia, are easy to arrange. There are some uninhabited islands around St. Martin as well, Tintamare for example: good for pic-nic and a day sunbathing. Golf, diving and yachting are well organized both on the French and the Dutch side. Renting a car here is not expensive and you can make most of your visit to St. Maarten when you do so.

|Caribbean Travel Tip|
Travel insurance is the best way to protect yourself against financial loss. The most useful plan is a comprehensive policy that includes coverage for trip cancellation and interruption, default, trip delay, and medical expenses (with a waiver for preexisting conditions).
Without insurance, you will lose all or most of your money if you cancel your trip or have to cut it short, regardless of the reason. Default insurance covers you if your tour operator, airline, or cruise line goes out of business. Trip-delay covers unforeseen expenses that you may incur due to bad weather or mechanical delays. Study the fine print when comparing policies.
For overseas travel, one of the most important components of travel insurance is its medical coverage. Supplemental health insurance will pick up the cost of your medical bills should you get sick or injured while traveling.
U.S. residents should note that Medicare generally does not cover health-care costs outside the United States, nor do many privately issued policies.
Residents of the United Kingdom can buy an annual travel-insurance policy valid for most vacations taken during the year in which the coverage is purchased.
If you are pregnant or have a pre-existing condition, make sure you're covered.
Always buy travel insurance directly from an insurance company or agent; if you buy it from a cruise line, airline, or tour operator that goes out of business, you probably will not be covered for the agency or operator's default, a major risk. Before you make any purchase, review your existing health and home-owner's policies to find out whether they cover expenses incurred while traveling.
