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|
Jungle & Rainforest Treking
If you plan to walk into the jungle make sure you know what you are doing. Carry a GPS and know how to use it. A compass will help the experienced explorer but if you just bought it and expect to enter the jungle and knock about then you may find yourself in deep trouble.
If you have to venture into the bush then please follow these instructions:
- Tell somebody where you are going.
- Bring lots of water.
- Make sure your compass works.
- Mark your trail.
- Be visually aware and remember landmarks.
- Check to see where the sun is when you enter the bush then check your watch to see what time it is, make regular checks to orient yourself to the movement of the sun.
