How is the condition in the island after hurricane
Like roads and restaurants is it easy to drive
Which part of the island is more effected by hurricane.
The Dutch side is much better than the French side. You can drive around easily on either. There is still much debris everywhere, even boats on the side of the road. Check to see if your restaurant is open before going out to dinner, as many websites are not updated.
The roads are all clear and the damage repaired. The only time travel was impaired was when the roads were partly excavated for utility installation, which should be complete by now. All wreckage and debris have been cleared. There is visible damage to buildings, especially Oyster Pond, Maho and Orient Beach.
There are plenty of shops and restaurants open, probably more than half of what there were before, with more opening continuously.
The beaches are all open and beautiful, near pristine. They all have at least a few places to eat, drink and rent chairs.
It is almost like going to the island twenty-five years ago, before it got so built up (I know, I was there).
The roads are open throughout the island and much of the hurricane damage has been repaired. However, you will see damage to some resorts and restaurants throughout the island. There appears to be a lot more damage on the French side. I didn’t get into Phillipsburg on the Dutch side when I was last there but the Simpson Bay area is in pretty good shape. A lot of the restaurants are open, though some of my favorites are still closed. The beaches are gorgeous and the people seemed happy to have tourists return. I highly recommend visiting Saint Maarten. They need tourists to come to boost their economy so they can continue to rebuild.
