St Martin Nature Reserve

St Martin

Covering 3,060 hectares, the vast majority of which is offshore, the vast Saint Martin National Nature Reserve is something everyone must do in the islands.

Closer to the shoreline, starfish, crustaceans, sea urchins and a variety of small fish can be spotted, while further out to sea visitors might see dolphins and humpback whales from February to June.

A real haven for bird watchers, you can expect to see a variety of seabirds such as terns, northern gannets, herons, pelicans and frigate birds to name a few. Additionally, sea turtles and iguanas are often sighted around the coast.

Visitors can explore the park by car, on foot via one of the nature trails, or beneath the surface of the water by scuba diving and snorkelling.
