There are two airports on island, one on Saint Martin (French side) called; L'Espérance Airport, also known as Grand Case Airport (code: SFG) and one on Sint Maarten (Dutch side) called Princess Juliana International Airport (code: SXM).

#1: What is foiling?
The innovative hype of hydrofoils
A (hydro)foil is almost like a mini airplane, which is connected to a very long fin under your kiteboard. Once you get up to speed, the foil will make enough lift to hold your weight and you will be able to lift the whole board off the water. You will keep riding only on the submerged foil, gently flying over the choppy waves in silence.
#3: How to get around on Saint Martin?
The most reliable way to get around is to rent a car or grab a taxi. Please take note that there is no (reliable) public transportation on our beautiful island so we strongly recommend you to go for the reliable option.
