Sint Maarten is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in the Caribbean on the island of Saint Martin.

On 6 and 7 September 2017, the island was hit by Category 5 Hurricane Irma, which caused widespread and significant damage to buildings and infrastructure. In the two following years much progress has been made to restore the island.

The reef and underwater areas sustained much damage. A number of boats damaged in the storm have been turned into artificial reefs.
