St. Martin and St. Maarten Nightlife

St. Maarten has lots of evening and late-night action. To find out what's doing, pick up St. Maarten Nights or St. Maarten Events, both distributed free in the tourist office and hotels. The glossy Discover St. Martin/St. Maarten magazine, also free, has articles on island history and on the newest shops, discos, and restaurants. Or buy a copy of Thursday's Daily Herald

newspaper, which lists the week's entertainment.

The island's 13 casinos are only on the Dutch side. All have craps, blackjack, roulette, and slot machines. You must be 18 or older to gamble. Dress is casual (but not bathing suits or skimpy beachwear). Most casinos are in hotels, but there are also some independents.
