In a day


I am coming on a cruise to St.Maarten. I've got almost 8 hrs to spend. What is the one thing that you would do if you were there for such a short period?

I am looking for some excursion idea/ a very good beach to hang around..

Anybody - been there? done this? Please share yr experience..

I guess it depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a good beach that is fun - I would recommend going to Maho beach to watch the planes come in - it truly is as spectacular, if not more so, than the pictures. The bars on either end of the beach are fun to just sit, socialize and have a couple of drinks. The drive is about a 20 minute? ride but you won't be in a hurry - the views during the drive are worth it.

Thanks for your response. Watching the planes from the beach sounds interesting. I am travelling with 3 kids under 10 - so I guess they'll like it too!

Is this a public beach? Can I take a cab from my port to get here? Are taking cabs safe in here?

Are there any island tours I can take ?
