St. Martin and St. Maarten

St. Maarten has lots of evening and late-night action. To find out what's doing on the island, pick up St. Maarten Nights or St. Maarten Events, both of which are distributed free in the tourist office and hotels. The glossy Discover St. Martin/St. Maarten magazine, also free, has articles on island history and on the newest shops, discos, and restaurants. Or buy a copy of Thursday's Daily Herald newspaper, which lists all the week's entertainment.

The island's casinos—all 13 of them—are found only on the Dutch side. All have craps, blackjack, roulette, and slot machines. You must be 18 years or older to gamble. Dress is casual (but excludes bathing suits or skimpy beachwear). Most casinos are found in hotels, but there are also some independents.
