2360, 2385 FRANCE (Saint Martin) - Grand Case

2360 Saint Martin - Grand Case (1)

Posted on 08.03.2016, 16.03.2016
Located on the north side of the island Saint Martin, on the Anguilla Channel, Grand Case is a small town, well known for its many restaurants and beach bars. It has more than two dozen eateries on its mile-long main street, and the town’s low-slung Creole architecture evokes the feel of France's other past and present New World possessions, such as New Orleans. People come from all over the island to these restaurants, famous for the delicious French Gourmet food.

Grand Case Beach is a sweeping curve of a very pretty, one mile long, white sandy beach with quite calm waters. It is awesome for swimming and has some nice snorkeling spots towards either end of the beach, or around the reef at Créole Rock. Besides, the Bay of Grand Case has a wonderful view of neighboring Anguilla and Créole Rock, and is the perfect place for a sunset stroll.

About the stamps
About the first stamp, issued to mark the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Central Civil Service, based in Nantes, I wrote here. The last stamp belong to the definitive series Marianne de la jeunesse, about which I wrote here.
