For active guests, a wide range of water sports has gained popularity in St. Maarten.
St. Maarten has a known reputation for boating and sailing. St. Maarten is one of the Caribbean's leading sailing venues, playing host each year to the Heineken Regatta and offering plenty of stunning anchorages. Fully equipped marinas welcome visiting boats and rent everything from speedboats to canoes. Day trips can also be arranged for deep-sea fishing or for visits to secluded nearby islands. Every March, hundreds of participants from Europe, the United States, and the Caribbean visit St. Maarten to compete in one of the world's biggest sailing events --- the Heineken Regatta. The event has come to symbolize the island's prominence as a sailing venue, and St. Maarten is one of the few places in the world where the average person can sail on a world-class racing boat.
Windsurfing along the northeast coast of the island is an exhilarating rush. Orient Bay and Coconut Grove are the favored spots. Equipment rental is available at both locations. Coconut Grove is better suited to beginners, while Orient Bay is better suited to advanced windsurfers.
Kayaking is fast becoming a popular sport on the island. Kayaks are available for rent for the ocean or for exploring Simpson Bay Lagoon, a large enclosed salt-water lagoon. You can also kayak between Pinel Island and the main island. Pinel is a small atoll just off the coast near the Orient Beach area where many partygoers hang out for a great day of tanning.
Scuba diving and snorkeling are another favorite, with visibility ranges between 75 and 125 feet (22-37 m). The islands reefs are rich and often located close to shore, accessible to snorkelers as well as divers. The best snorkeling spots are off Little Bay Beach, Dawn Beach, and Maho Bay.
One of the most popular dive sites is the wreck of the British man-of-war HMS Proselyte, which sank in 1801. Today its haunting remains lie atop a reef a mile south of Great Bay. Another common destination is the freighter Teigland, sunk deliberately on Cable Reef in 1993. It has already begun to attract animal life and underwater vegetation.
For nightlife, St. Maarten offers over ten exciting casinos with world-class gaming and entertainment.
