Explore the beaches of St Maarten

Meet your friendly guide at the Philipsburg cruise port and board a comfortable, air-conditioned van for transport to your first beach stop. Onboard, enjoy complimentary refreshments like water, beer, soda and rum punch.

Arrive at St Maarten's longest beach, Orient Bay Beach, where you'll stay for approximately 2 hours.

Sailboats, jet skis and paragliding excursions are all available, as well as some kids' activities (at your own expense.)

Around midday, return to the vehicle for the trip to Maho Bay Beach. Famous for its proximity fo Princess Juliana International Airport, the beach is a great place to see jumbo jets fly in and out of the island. Stroll the white sand beach, lounge in the sand, or watch the waves crash on the rocky coast during your 2-hour stay here. Visit the Sunset Beach Bar and Grill for lunch (own expense) while listening to a live feed from the airport's control tower.

After your half day of fun in the sun and sand, enjoy drop-off back at the cruise port.

alot of fun and great tour guide, tip: for a few dollars grab a golf cart ride from ship to the area where you meet , quite a long walk and with inlays was just too far and we would have not known where exactly to go, the golf cart brought us all to the meeting place for a fair tip!!!!

This was an awesome - off ship excursion option and I am very glad that I booked it. The time at each location was the perfect length. Our tour guide/bus driver was super awesome and shared with us plenty of fruit/rum punch.

The tour guide was great - hilarous. The visit to Orient Beach was very relaxing and just the right amount of time. maho Beach was great, but a bit too long. It was high tide and no place to sit, except the rocks.
