When your cruise ship docks in Philipsburg, St Maarten, board your transfer coach for the 7.5-mile (12-km) drive west to Maho Beach, stopping along the way for a photo op at Cole Bay Hill.
Known for its proximity to Princess Juliana International Airport, Maho Beach (aka Airport Beach) is an island favorite due to the planes that fly just overhead, landing on and taking off from the neighboring runway.
When you arrive, spend your time on the beach however you wish — lounge on the sand and watch jets soar over the sea, go swimming in the turquoise water, or visit Sunset Beach Bar for drinks and a bite to eat (own expense).
After your time on the beach, you’ll be returned to Philipsburg.
