Watch: Dramatic Before and After Aerial Videos of Orient Beach – #RebuildSXM

Orient Beach was one of my family’s favorite places to visit whenever we went to Saint Martin. Our day would always start at Pedro’s Beach Bar with some grilled chicken, rice and beans. Oh, and a could Carib, of course!

So naturally, it breaks my heart every time I see photos of Pedro’s completely leveled. The only thing that remains is the bathroom that stood behind Pedro’s. It’s surreal to see the pictures, and they feel like they’re everywhere.

While it’s hard to see, this video is a stark reminder that there is so much work to do on the island. So many people there are homeless and need our help. They will for a long time. So please remember to keep giving, if you can.

Please help rebuild SXM and give today. Click here to visit the SXM Strong donate page. Thank you!

I fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited to celebrate my 40th birthday in May of 2009. Since then, I've spent most birthdays there, and have visited countless other times getting to know this wonderful place and the friendly locals that make it so special. I adore the culture, the people, the community, and the beauty of this stunning island. SXM Strong is a website that I started to support humanitarian relief efforts following Hurricane Irma. There was no plan, it just evolved as I witnessed the devastation that Irma caused the island and the huge need to communicate and disseminate information about what had happened and how people could help support this island and its people.
