Kite surfing is a hybrid of kiting and windsurfing or surfing.
Orient Bay beaches, Nettle Bay, Cul de Sac Bay and Lucas Bay (Coralita) offer the best conditions for kite surfing and lessons.
With its little islands surrounding it, mangroves and huge inland lagoon (Simpson Bay Lagoon), St. Martin is the perfect destination for kayaking. Throught this activity, you will be able to view its natural ecosystems and get as close to nature as possible.
The usual kayaking routes are to Pinel Island and Green Cay, off Orient Bay, which can be accessed in 10 to 20 minutes from the beach. It is theoretically possible to tour the island in its entirety but the roughest parts of the coastline (particularly the Atlantic-facing southern part of the island) and those with strong currents are unsuitable for inexperienced kayakers.
Kayaks can be rented from most hotels and water sports clubs, and wherever you are based there is always a new place to discover near by. Several clubs also offer accompanied excursions into the mangrove.
The most interesting of these trips is to the Etang aux Poissons, which is cut off from the sea by a sandy spit. Here you can paddle through the mangroves, among egrets and other waders. Some operators offer trips with a chance to enjoy a magnificent sunset.
Whether out on the open sea or in the calm waters of the mangrove, there are a number of organized trips offered on the island. Why not rent a canoe from your nearest beach and play Arawak ?
