“Very little traffic....wonderful to walk to/fro...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Our condo was at the end of the Boardwalk so we took full advantage of the walking along the boardwalk many times....listening to ocean roll in and out was very pleasant. Could get very hot during the day. People watching was fun too!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great boardwalk. Everything you could want for a stroll during the day or evening! Shops, bars, restaurants, beach chairs and umbrellas for rent - cheap and $2 beers! Great view. Very quiet at night. Connects to Front St for quick and easy diamond shopping!

“Real Caribbean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Loved it here - hate the hassle from the sunbed and restaurant people - but what do you expect?! They should realise you would be more likely to use if they left you alone

“Close, Easy to get to, and Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

OK so it's really not a boardwalk but a concrete walkway along the beach, picture postcard view and beautiful clean water. We arrived Sint Maarten aboard the NCL Dawn, first thing we did after leaving the ship was to purchase a water taxi pass for $7.00 per person allowing unlimited trips. One block back you will find unlimited shopping, tax free and duty free! Shopping is not as large or varied as St. Thomas but everyone was friendly and helpful, and some very good deals!

A quick hop back to the ship to drop our bags and change into swimwear, then the water taxi back to the "boardwalk" which is lined with bars, restaurants and shops. If you are a beach person, there is no need to do a beach tour here, walk along, pick your spot and dive in! All of the bars along the strip offer specials for us beach goers. The going rate was $20.00 for 2 padded loungers, an umbrella and 5 drinks, stay as long as you like! Reasonably priced food is available everywhere. It doesn't get any better than this, try it you will like it.
