Booked to have a blood test and vaccination. I have to say everything was no less than 5 stars, from the booking process to the appointment, the staff are very knowledgeable and super accommodating. I’m not great with needles but lovely Paige was very reassuring and professional, probably my best experience with needles as I did not feel a thing. Will definitely be using this clinic again. THANK YOU

Further Travel Health Advice for Saint Martin

St. Maarten has a rather temperate climate with constant breezes from the trade winds, but it is important to take care when basking in the sun. You will need a good sun block lotion with SPF 20 or higher. Apply liberally and often, whether at the beach or on tour.

The tap water in St. Maarten is purified and considered safe to drink. However, spring water is cheap and readily available. Bring lots of water with you wherever you go in St. Maarten, and replenish fluids throughout the day.

Often called The Gourmet Capital of the Caribbean, St. Maarten is noted for the choice and quality of its restaurants. French, Caribbean, Creole, and West Indian are the most popular but others are available in any number of St. Maarten’s more than 500 restaurants. Lobster and other seafood specialties top the list, and local chefs continually find new exciting ways to prepare them. Try stuffed crab, Chiquetaille made with avocado and shredded spicy codfish, or Blaff, seafood simmered in seasoned soup. Fresh juices are made from guava, mango, and tamarind, and the National drink is guava berry liqueur. Sip a ‘ti punch aperitif, made from fruit infused 100 proof rum while you take in one of St. Maarten’s world famous sunsets on Simpson Bay.

Should you require health care in St. Maarten, there are two medical centres, one on the French side, the other on the Dutch, both staffed with qualified trained personnel. There are also pharmacies across the island.. It is important that you arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need at these medical centres.

Protect yourself, and your family, with comprehensive travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any potentially risky activities, such as diving and snorkelling.

Aside from observing the normal precautions, visitors are safe on both sides of St. Maarten.
