It has been a few weeks since I first set foot in St. Maarten’s Mullet Bay Beach and I was taken aback after realizing her magnificence. It was a short and sweet encounter and it seemed to be that I can’t get enough of her; from then on, I made a promise to myself to meet up with her again. The next Wednesday came, I went on my way following the same course to her location feeling more at ease and blissful than the last time.
Tourists flock by the hundreds to take pleasure and plunge in its aquamarine waters, amble on its white sand beach, unwind on a bench under the sun or feast in its local food and beverage from the restaurants nearby. But it has something more than that, something that is peculiarly seen in St. Maarten. Something called the Maho Beach Experience.
The Caribbean region is known to be a first rate tourist destination because of the island’s tropical weather and pristine beaches with crystal clear waters. One of the most sought after island by holiday seekers is St. Maarten (Sint Martin).
It has bedazzled me seeing her for the first time. She’s simple but she can be feisty, fierce and bold. She would let me stare at her with amazement and I can’t help but smile.
It is the only island country in the world that is governed by two nations, the Netherlands and France with Philipsburg (Dutch side) and Marigot (French side) as its capital cities. And this is where the tides had brought and stirred me to pen another page in my biking diary.
