Orient beach was beautiful and relaxing. Maho beach was busier but still really cool to see. Anthony our driver was very knowledgeable about the island and gave us an insider's perspective of where to go and what to see when we return to St Maarten

We had a great time in St. Maarten visiting both beaches. Our tour guide was fabulous and allowed us the most time at both places. I would strongly recommend staying longer at Orient Beach. The beach is bigger, less crowded and very clean. However, once you arrive you will be approached frequently with locals to buy merchandise or a massage. Once they pass it's a very relaxing place. Maho Beach is worth going to to see the airplanes, but it is very crowded. This beach is better to visit later in the afternoon, 2:00 and after once the crowd dies down. We had plenty of water, soda, beer and Rum punch provided by our driver to last us the entire trip. Great Day!!
