Any uncommon traveler visiting St. Martin would do well to check out Creole Rock.
A hardscrabble outcropping jutting sharply from the sea, Creole Rock sits offshore Grand Case; a silent sentry, of sorts, impossible to miss at the northern end of the Grand Case Bay.
(MUCH more on this amazing experience later.)
Like everyone else who ventures to Creole Rock, we were there, first and foremost, to snorkel. The rock and its surrounding waters are part of a marine preserve, which means LOTS of fish and some surprisingly (to me) healthy coral.
