Things to do in St Maartenfor /1st timers

We are going to be in St Maarten for a week in June. Any ideas of what is a must to do when we are there?

go to ilet Pinel off of the Cul de Sac on the French side. You can take a boat over for $6 roundtrip (cash only). The first boat leaves about 10 and it is abount 5 minute ride. The water and beach is amazing at Pinel. If you don't bring your own food/beverages - bring cash because they don't take credit cards. this is my favorite place on the island.

I suggest dinner in Grand Case at least one night. I love il Nettuno (Italian).

Finally - rent a car. it is easy to get around the island since there is one main road. Renting a car is the cheapest form of transportation. Taxis get expensive.

Also, Everywhere takes USD. Some places will offer a 1 to 1 USD to euro rate for cash transactions - but ask first, because not all places do.
