Shore Excursion: Orient Beach and Maho Beach Adventure

    What to Expect
    Enjoy this shore excursion that allows you to visit two sought after beaches in St Maarten. After meeting at the designated meeting point near the cruise ship port, begin your adventure by heading first to Orient Beach.

    At Orient Beach you can hang out, walk on the white sand, swim in the ocean, or rent a beach chair and relax while sipping on your favorite drinks. For the more adventurous, there is also the option to go parasailing, snorkeling, kite surfing and kite flying. You can also rent a jet ski, water trampoline or banana boat. The options are endless! There are lots of bars and restaurants with Creole and French cuisine where you can grab some authentic local food. You will have two hours at Orient Beach to enjoy the sand, sun, water and breeze.

    Next, the adventure will continue to Maho Beach (Sunset Beach) for another two hours. Maho Beach is famous for being located in front of the Princess Juliana International Airport where some of the largest aircraft come in for landing right overhead and take off right before your eyes. These planes land so close you feel like you can reach out and touch them! This is an unforgettable experience that will not soon be forgotten.

    With the day well spent at the beach with a tan line to show for it, head back to town where you have an option of remaining or being dropped back off at your cruise ship.

    The beach was great. The planes flying over was such an experience. Waves were very exciting and rough though The driver and the the lady guide were not very friendly. Did not point out many sites for us. The van did not have license plates.
