SHOWME Caribbean: Great Bay Beach in Philipsburg is Back and Thriving (Video)

Take a walk around Sint Maarten and you’ll notice something quite peculiar – things feel pretty normal on this small island. That’s notable because just a few months ago the strongest hurricane in history tore through this island and any thought of ‘normal’ was but a distant memory.

I’ve spoken to a lot of people here in Sint Maarten and the one thing that everyone agrees on is that they are amazed at how quickly the island has bounced back and how good things look, especially the beaches.

Our friends at SHOWME Caribbean have compiled some incredible video around the island, all taken post-Irma. Naturally, I get a lot of questions about how things are in Sint Maarten. I always say the same thing, “amazing”. But you don’t need to take my word for it, because there are plenty of videos to support that statement (like here, here, here, here, and, well you get the point).

Here’s the latest from SHOWME Caribbean that flies over Great Bay Beach in Philipsburg. After watching this, the only real question should be when are you coming?

I am a U.S. citizen living in Phoenix, Arizona, with my wife and two sons, ages 4 and 6 (and yes, they LOVE SXM as much as we do!). My family considers the island a second home and we’ve been there countless times. We love the culture, the people, the community and the beauty of this island. The people have always made us feel at home and welcome. This is a small way for me and my family to support an island and it’s people that we hold so dear.
