Seaside Nature Park is an unique place on the small island of Sint Maarten. 30 acres of unspoiled nature awaits you, a stone’s throw away from the high density development that characterizes Sint Maarten. Surrounded on one side by the storage facilities for oil and water and a development project on the other side, the rustique facilities of the park will make you forget it all!

A former plantation, Seaside brings back the ‘old days’ to their visitors. The (Lucky) Stables, the kayaks, the trails, the beach hut, playground and pet farm and the small beach site offer a variety of activities for the whole family in a simple and unique set up.

Almost all animals at Seaside are open for an encounter. Hand-feeding the ducks, petting the rabbits, admiring the peacock or watch the cow being milked or spotting the iguana, a joy for young and old. Not to mention what about these free roaming horses in the park?

A private initiative, the park stands for the importance of education about nature. Preservation and environmental care are part of the objectives that are imbedded in our message: Care for Nature, Care for Sint Maarten!

Being continuously in the process of improving, the Seaside Nature Park is proud to have received an award at the 5th Crystal Pineapple Awards by the SHTA for Outstanding Environmental Achievement!

horses in sea

I booked this trip thru the hotel tour company and I’m glad we did. Remi was our tour guide and there were 7 people total. What I like is that they keep you in smaller groups so there aren’t too many people on the tour. Remi was funny, super informative, and always checking on us to make sure we were comfortable. He brought us on their trails with breathtaking views of other islands from atop sea cliffs. We even saw St Bart’s.

Remi was also an oracle of information about the island and generalities. The ranch itself is fun to walk around too with peacocks, pigs, turkeys, ducks, iguanas , and dogs on the property. The horses all roam free about the island and come back to the park.what is amazing about the seaside nature park is that during the hurricane irma the owners had to decide what to do with the horses.they decided to let them stay free so the horses could stick together as a herd and keep each other safe. By doing this they used their instinct to hunker down in the storm. All 70 of them survived the catastrophic hurricane together!

The best part was finishing off with a ride in the water. Remi asked if anyone wanted to go deeper in the water with him while he will assist you and the horse it is very cool make sure you do it.

What a great spot. We went on their Sunset Champagne Ride on Sunday evening. Don was our guide and Ashley gave us our set up instructions. They both were fabulous. The horse were well cared for and seemed to enjoy the ride as much as we did.

The highlight was the end of the ride when they take you in the deep water (if you want) and the horses swim with you on their backs!
