    hrs Estimate Duration

This tour starts from the cruise terminal, while driving through some of the local villages and then crossing the French-Dutch Border to the French side.

We will then do a picture stop overlooking the Orient Bay Beach, one of our main scenic points and head towards Grand Case Beach as well, a sweeping curve of a very pretty, one-mile-long, white sandy beach with quite calm waters and the perfect place for a spectacular photo shooting!

The next stop is the capital of the French side of the island, Marigot. Visit its beautiful Market for a bit of shopping or to just enjoying some tasty pastries and a natural drink. Take amazing selfies in Fort St Louis, St Martin's most impressive historic monument; this military hill offers great views over the Bay of Marigot.

Our journey continues crossing again by the southwest French – Dutch Border, we will stop at a place that honors the treaty between France and Netherlands for taking the island control.

Right after, we will arrive to Maho Beach, - world-famous beach adjacent to the Princess Juliana International Airport. Here, you’ll watch airplanes on their final approach landing at the airport, passing only a short distance above your head. Here you’ll definitely take a really good photo!

Finally, we make our way towards Guavaberry Emporium, the perfect place to buy the famous and legendary National Liqueur of St. Maarten. We will be able to get a beautiful view of the capital of the Dutch side – Phillipsburg.

By the time we get back to the port, we would have made a complete cycle around this beautiful paradise island.
