Cul de Sac vacation accommodation is set in or around a village in the north east of the French half of St Martin very close to the beautiful beaches of Cul de Sac Baie. Within walking distance of sea and sand and a very short way from some excellent gourmet restaurants, this is the perfect place to enjoy yourself away from the main crowds, but still a good place from which to explore the island.
Staying in a Cul de Sac self-catering apartment means you can surf, beginners included, all the year round although advanced surfers will probably prefer the months of March to September when the waves are strongest. Other sports related to the beaches and water are paddle-boating, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving and windsurfing. In land there is hiking, biking and an excellent golf course , Mullet Bay Golf Course which is on the Dutch side of Simpson Lagoon. St Martin’s highest peak, Peak Paradise, has a track nearly all the way to the top from where the views are stunning; on the way you pass through Loterie Farm which is also worth a visit. As well as having a national park for preserving wild life both terrestrial and marine, you will find a wonderful zoo in Philipsburg and a butterfly farm near Orient Bay. Nothing is very far away from Cul de Sac self-catering apartments, and a walk along the Philipsburg Boardwalk which takes you round most of Great Bay is also a pleasant way to spend some time with plenty of restaurants and cafes for rest and refreshment at along the way.
