Is there a difference between St. Martin and St. Maarten?

Both are the same island, despite the two different spellings. The difference really only refers to location. French is the official language of St. Martin and Dutch is the official language of St. Maarten. However, English is widely spoken on both sides of the island. Driving from one side to the other is generally quick and easy.
