Best Time to Visit Saint-Martin?

Saint-Martin Island in the Caribbean is a tropical and warm destination. Therefore, you'll experience pleasant weather all year round, with temperatures ranging from 29 to 32°C. The water temperature is around 26°C and may increase by a few degrees during the wet season. Note that from January to April, the season is considered dry with less rainfall. The highest rainfall rates are from July to November.

For travelers with flexible dates, we recommend traveling in May-June when prices are often more attractive and the island is less crowded (fewer people on beaches, roads, etc.). The hurricane season in the Caribbean is typically from July to November, so you can enjoy ideal weather conditions (water at 28/29°C and air temperature at 31/32°C).

Major Events

The life of Saint-Martin Island is marked by several major events. The most important is undoubtedly the Saint-Martin Carnival. In the French part, it usually takes place in early March, while in the Dutch part, it's typically in late April or early May. You'll undoubtedly appreciate the energy of this colorful event, enjoyed by both locals and travelers. One of the peculiarities of the Saint-Martin Carnival is its "Carnival Village," which includes kiosks offering catering services, a concert stage, exhibitions, the nerve center of the carnival in summary.

Another highlight of the Saint-Martin calendar is the Heineken Regatta. Every year for the past 40 years, this event takes place in March and brings together over a hundred sailboats in a friendly atmosphere.

Finally, in terms of music, the SXM Festival has been bringing together electronic music enthusiasts for 5 years now. In a paradisiacal setting, the SXM Festival takes place at various spots on the island with a carefully curated lineup, an event in Saint-Martin not to be missed!
