The same rules apply to St. Maarten/St. Martin like anywhere else you are unfamiliar with, stay within areas that are properly lit and where there is a lot of activity. Leave your passport at the hotel but make sure that you do have a photocopy with you at all times. When visiting, avoid carrying large amounts of money, jewelry or electronics around.
St. Maarten/St. Martin is a very busy island, therefore, always lock your car when away from it and don’t leave valuables inside especially when visiting the beach.
