• Hôtel L'Esplanade, Grand Case, St. Martin, is up on a bluff overlooking Grand Case and Grand Case beach, which you can see from your private terrace. This 24-room hotel is decked out in colorful tiles and pillowed in a profusion of tropical blooms, and the rooms manage to be utterly private, beautifully outfitted, and comfortably homey all at once. You're just 5 minutes away from bustling Grand Case below, but this tranquil spot feels like a world apart.
  • Happy Bay, St. Martin, St. Martin. The most serene beach on the island is also the most isolated: you'll have to take a boat to get there. But there are few lovelier places anywhere in the Caribbean to meditate and tan than this stretch of sand.
  • Pic du Paradis, St. Martin. This volcanic ridge, over 1,400-feet above sea level, is a quiet hiking destination, perfect for those who prefer birdsong to the chatter of other tourists.
