St. Maarten is a Caribbean island with dual nationalities and, with less than 100 square kilometers, it is the smallest landmass in the world to be divided by two nations. The southern portion of the island is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the northern part, called St. Martin, is part of the French overseas collectivity. The island has an international airport on the Dutch side and a regional airport on the French side.

Maho Beach is next to the Princess Juliana International Airport and is a famously known place for tourists and planespotters to watch aircraft on their final approach to the airport. A good friend of Bohlke caught the above photo of our MU-2 passing over Maho Beach.
Dutch and French are the official languages spoken, respectively. The Euro is the official St. Martin currency on the French side, and the Netherlands Antilles Florin (NAF), also known as the guilder, is the official currency on the Dutch side. The US dollar is also commonly used all over the island.
