Hi all, 25 years ago I was on the french side of St. Martin with my daughter and husband. Memories abound. I know it has changed; but I am on a cruise ship in April and decided to go back to the harbor at Marigot on my own to see the changes. It was just getting up and running with shops, cafes, etc and we had a blast.
So...I am thinking of taking a taxi first thing off the ship and going to Marigot (do not want any fixed tours) After spending a few hours shopping, stopping at cafes, etc., I'd like the afternoon at a beach before returning to the ship. I am purposefully not going to one near the ship to avoid the " frenzy".
What would be the best options via taxi...to go from Marigot to a beach (with a beachy cafe, and some shade available - chair, umbrella, etc.) that I'd be comfortable alone.... And then back to the ship.
I've looked at maps on line but it is difficult to imagine the distances...so I hope someone familiar with that will chime in!
