Almond Grove: is a prestigious gated community and tropical sanctuary, located on the western slopes of the mountain region of south central St. Maarten. Situated between Marigot and the French side border to the north, and Cole Bay and the Lagoon to the west and south, Almond Grove is a convenient 5-minute drive to Philipsburg, the Dutch side capitol, and the action packed Simpson Bay area. A 5-minute drive also leads to both the St. Maarten Montessori School and Learning Unlimited. Absolutely breathtaking views of the entire Lagoon area and most of western St. Maarten can be had from the hibiscus and flamboyant lined vistas of Almond Grove. At the bottom of the hill, at the entrance to Almond Grove, Cole Bay offers every residential amenity. The Grande Marche supermarket, banks, stores from Ace Hardware to pet shops to electronics stores, gas stations, doctors’ and veterinarians’ offices, pharmacies, and small neighborhood eateries like Le Champagne, in the Orange Grove shopping center, are all here and more. Spend some time at Lagoonies bar and restaurant, at any time of day or night, to find yourself conversing with globe wandering sailors and pirates alike. Free homemade tapas are served with a smile at the bar each evening at happy hour. For some real local Caribbean flavor, grab a jerk patty at La Bomba or a local pastry at Carl and Sons Bakery. Traveling north, towards Marigot and the French side border will lead to the luxury yacht marina, hotel, and residences at Port de Plaisance, home of the Princess Casino, restaurants, salon, spa, bars, tennis courts, and more. A few minutes more down the road, and Marigot offers its endless fine dining, shopping, and ambience, all in the French style. For the naturalist experience, a quick drive south is Cay Bay and the Seaside Nature Park. Nature trails run along the coast all the way to Cole Bay, about an hour or more walk. Lucky Stables offers guided horseback riding excursions, winding through the natural trails and even into the sea itself.
