Located 270 kilometers to the North-West of Guadeloupe, the northern half of the island belongs to France and the southern half to Holland. Saint Martin is dominated by a mountain, the Paradise Peak (424 meters), and is surrounded by superb beaches. Famous for its gastronomy, this island is definitively one of the most pleasant destinations in the Caribbean...

In the bay of Grand Case, the Rocher Créole offers several interesting, rather easy dives close to the coast. Fauna is rich (stingrays, morays, crabs and sometimes small sharks). Several wrecks lie there, in particular the Folia (at a place called Les Failles), filled with fish! This small boat belonged to the center OCTOPLUS: it sunk during the hurricane Luis in 1995!
