Overview

THIS IS NOT A TOUR BUT A BEACH ADVENTURE - THIS IS A GROUP RENDEZVOUS, the bigger the group the less you pay! This is a 6 to 7 hours package, as we take you to your destination, you can hang out at the beach, walk on the white sand, swim in the ocean, enjoy our water sports activities or rent a beach chair and relax while sipping on your favorite drink. Spend 2-hours at Orient Beach, enjoying the sand, sun, water and breeze. Then head off to the Maho Beach (Sunset Beach) where some of the largest aircraft come in for landing right overhead and take off right before your eyes, for another three hours. With the day well spent at the beach with a tan line to show for it, we head back to town where you have an option of remaining or be dropped back to your cruise ship.

Highlights

  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city

Know More about this tour

Enjoy this shore excursion that allows you to visit two sought after beaches in St Maarten. After meeting at the designated meeting point near the cruise ship port, begin your adventure by heading first to Orient Beach.

At Orient Beach you can hang out, walk on the white sand, swim in the ocean, or rent a beach chair and relax while sipping on your favorite drinks. For the more adventurous, there is also the option to go parasailing, snorkeling, kite surfing and kite flying. You can also rent a jet ski, water trampoline or banana boat. The options are endless! There are lots of bars and restaurants with Creole and French cuisine where you can grab some authentic local food. You will have two hours at Orient Beach to enjoy the sand, sun, water and breeze.

Next, the adventure will continue to Maho Beach (Sunset Beach) for another two hours. Maho Beach is famous for being located in front of the Princess Juliana International Airport where some of the largest aircraft come in for landing right overhead and take off right before your eyes. These planes land so close you feel like you can reach out and touch them! This is an unforgettable experience that will not soon be forgotten.
With the day well spent at the beach with a tan line to show for it, head back to town where you have an option of remaining or being dropped back off at your cruise ship.

    This was a fantastic tour to see both Orient and Maho beach and both sides of the Island. Our driver, Clive, was so helpful and allowed us to spend a relaxing amount of time at both beaches. He was a great guide as well while we were in the nice air conditioned van. I would definitely book this again through Viator/Diederick SXM tours. Thank you for giving us an amazing experience. We look forward to coming back!

    We had taken this tour previously and loved it. This time it was a horrible experience that just left us wanting it to end. Confusion at departure, shotty vehicle, excursion change not notified about until we were en route, no drinks, only "tour" was driving past stores and told they had good food.

    The beach was great. The planes flying over was such an experience. Waves were very exciting and rough though The driver and the the lady guide were not very friendly. Did not point out many sites for us. The van did not have license plates.

    Our amazingly informative Driver, Paul, told us all about the island as he drove us to each beach. We watched the planes take off and land at Princess Juliana Airport whose runway is a few feet from sandy, Maho Beach. There are bars and restaurants at Maho Beach, but we went in the morning, so we didn't go into anyof them. When we were done with plane watching, Paul took us over to the French side of the island to Orient Bay which has beautiful beaches. There are shops and restaurants here. If Paul is your driver, he can give you a wonderful experience because he knows the island inside and out!

    This tour was awesome! We thought we booked only a beach tour but got to see so much more. Our driver, Lake, made sure to tell us all about the island and stopped for pictures along the way. My boyfriend and I were the only ones on this tour which made it more personalized!

    Best tour ever. Couldn't have asked for a better tour guide than Douce. Not only did we get the tour that we actually paid for, but much more in terms of history and culture. Couldn't recommend a better tour.
