ST. MARTIN / ST. MAARTEN / Nightlife

Many of the large hotels on both sides of the island offer music and dancing as well as weekly island shows with Caribbean music and local performers. There are discos and clubs on the Dutch side in Philipsburg and Simpson Bay, with dancing into the early morning hours; comedy clubs or an evening movie are also alternatives. In French St. Martin, the most popular after-dark pastime is leisurely dining. However, some restaurants also offer live shows (jazz, reggae, pop soloists, dance revues) and have busy bars open until midnight.

There are a dozen casinos on the Dutch side (none on the French half), and much of Dutch St. Maarten’s nightlife revolves around them. Most casinos are located in hotels, but several operate independently. All of the casinos offer blackjack, craps, roulette and slot machines. You must be at least 18 to drink or gamble on the island.
