Discover the Friendly Island

During your stay at The Hills Residence, we want you to be able to explore and discover both Sint Maarten, the Dutch part of the island, and Saint Martin, the French parts of the island, as much as possible and advise you on what activities and places are a MUST DO.

From water activities such as scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, and E-foiling, to adrenaline rushes with skydiving or ziplining, our friendly island has a lot more to offer than you would think.

With incredible weather all year around, the possibilities are endless. We can ensure you that you will never get bored!

If you prefer something a little bit more relaxing but still want to discover the island, a boat day around the Sint Maarten/ Saint Martin while hoping from spot to spot is the perfect option, if you are with a group or just with your partner. You can either choose between a shared charter or a private charter. The charters usually provide lunch, snacks and an open bar, as well as snorkeling gear, and other amenities depending on each boat. You will be able to discover the most beautiful spots of the island, while tanning and enjoying the warm crystal blue water.

Or you might prefer something a little more active but not too tiring, we have exactly what you need. Spend the day at Mullet Bay beach, at the Kalatua beach restaurant. Get a beach chair, order a drink, put some sunscreen on and enjoy the view! If the weather is clear enough, you might even see Saba one of our neighbor islands. After lunch, rent an E-Foil and get active in the water. You will a whole new feeling of freedom while gliding 30/40 cm above the water. And finish your day by enjoying the sunset with a drink.
