“Nice overview of the island; memorable beaches!” We had only 1 day in Saint Maarten/St Martin (via cruise ship). We pre-booked the Sightseeing, Sand & Plane Spotting tour and enjoyed an overview of both the Dutch and French sides and stopped at 2 beaches. Maho Beach included watching airplanes literally land and take off at the airport right in front of the beach.
The planes coming in to land went directly overhead! We later relaxed at Orient Beach (even joined in on the clothing optional side for a while! Partially explains the lack of photos-not allowed!) Lunch in Marigot (for us) consisted of a creole seafood combo platter at Rosemary's. Our tour was guided by a lively, friendly man named Jose. Jose was thoughtful enough to adjust our tour so that we spent more time in certain areas by request.
