Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Pass through Philipsburg and up to Divi Little Bay Hill where great views of Philipsburg can be seen. Your next stop will be overlooking Indigo Bay, Cole Bay and Simpson Bay. Then continue on to a 30-minute photo stop at Maho (Sunset) beach which ends where the runway of St. Maarten’s International Airport begins and where some of the largest commercial aircraft come in to land.

    Continue on to Marigot for some local shopping and while there you may visit the West Indies Shopping Mall, the Local Creole Restaurants and don't forget, those fabulous French pastries at Sarafina’s. Next on to Harbor View Point overlooking Orient Beach, then cross through the border line to head back to Philipsburg where the talk of the town is shopping for approximately one hour. Finally with a wonderful day on the Island behind you, head back to the ship with lots of memories, shopping, laughter and plans on the next trip back to the island.
