Be aware that most flights arriving into St. Maarten do not deplane through gates but down movable steps on the tarmac. Many of the newer hotels and resorts on the islands are equipped with handicapped-accessible bathrooms. Beaches can be difficult to access for those in wheelchairs, however. One surprising exception: The nudist resort, Club Orient (www.cluborient.com), on Orient Beach in French St. Martin, has not only wheelchair-accessible bathrooms but one of the island's few beach wheelchairs. The oceanfront boardwalk in Philipsburg is wide and flat, making it ideal for wheelchair travel.
