The Rolandus Canal


The Rolandus Canal is one of the two waterways protecting St Maarten’s main source of income, salt, from mixing with sweet water coming from the hills. The Rolandus canal was dug around 1870. The Canal ends in Great Bay under a beautiful bridge in front of Aziana Restaurant.Visit the nearby heritage museum for more information!
