How long will you be there? What kind of experience do you have?
Staying around St. Martin can be ok for a novice
sailor, but the passages to the nearby islands will be awful tempting. St. Barths is a beautiful 4 hour reach and of course an amazing destination
. The diving
is spectacular as well (worlds better than St. Martin), I suggest Plongee Caraibes as an operator.
Depending on the charter company, Saba
is a nice sail and easily my favorite island in the caribbean
. It also depends on the time of year your going as there are moorings on the leeward side of the island which would be open to northerly swells in the winter. The diving is incredible.
If I was staying on St. Martin....
Grand Case, Tintamarre, and Marigot are my top picks. A quick sail over to Road bay on Anguilla
is nice for some variety.
