Know More about this tour

Prepare for five hours of absolute fun in the sun! Your friendly guide will pick you up at your hotel in St Maarten and deliver you to two fantastic beaches by air-conditioned van or coach as you enjoy complimentary refreshments onboard. First, head to Orient Bay Beach, the islands longest beach, equipped with complete tourist amenities including a wide range of beach bars and restaurants within easy reach.

Check out the many water sports facilities where jet skis, sailboats, paragliding and even some kids activities are available (own expense), or simply take a dip in the clear green water of the Caribbean. After two hours at beautiful Orient Bay Beach, your guide will deliver your group to Maho Beach, known for its proximity to Princess Juliana International Airport.

Head to Maho Beach around midday, just in time to view the arrivals of large aircraft at the airport! While at Maho Beach, enjoy lunch at Sunset Beach Bar and Grill (own expense) while you listen to the live feed from the control tower. Then, watch airplanes loom overhead as they approach the runway and feel the tremble of the jet blasts from departing flights at the nearby airport.

Youll have approximately two hours to spend at Maho Beach, where you can relax amid the cool breeze of the Caribbean, watch the swelling waves of the sea or stroll along the pure white sand lost in the sound of crashing waves on the rocks that rise off the coast. Once youve achieved official status as a St Maarten beach bum, your guide will transfer you back to your hotel.

  • Watching the planes come in was amazing!

  • Loved both beaches. Wellington was great! Appreciated the history and info the whole time. Well worth the money!

  • We had a great time on our tour of St Maarten. We easily found our pick-up location and the group was very friendly and courteous. Our guides were great and pointed out a lot of interesting things about the island as we drove. They provided refreshments along the way and once we got to Orient beach we were able to get two lounge chairs with an umbrella and a drink for each of us for 10. Orient beach is beautiful and large so you can either stay on your chair, play in the ocean or walk along the beach. We loved both the Orient beach and the Maho beach, but the Maho beach is amazing as the huge planes go right over your head. I haven't seen anything like that and it was pretty thrilling. I would highly recommend this tour. They are very professional, timely and provide interesting information. Also the groups are smaller - we had around 15 people in the van which made it nice.

  • Difficult to actually get a hold of the operator of the tour till we never actually made it I was looking for something related to just seeing the airplanes take off rather than that and a beach stuff also it would be nice if the operator of the tour would make available the schedule prior to going on a tour

  • I enjoyed my tour guy however I wish my crowd was different. Would definitely recommend for large groups rather than couples.

  • Great trip overall! Had a little difficulty at first contacting the local guides to set-up the pickup from our cruise ship, but once that was squared away, the rest of the trip was awesome. Got to visit two great beaches. Would definitely recommend this excursion!

  • Really enjoyed seeing the sights, especially Maho beach and the urchins by the ocean.

  • Tour was excellent. My husband and I were treated very well. Enjoyed the historical knowledge our guide had not only St. Maarten, but also surrounding islands. Very relaxed and informal, blended in quite well with the island. At Orient Beach, If you are looking for a little solitude, but convenience of restroom and beach bartender, take a walk further down the beach to Coco resort. Maho beach is smaller and crowded, but crazy exciting with the planes flying directly over head as they land.

  • The tour people were great. Very easy to meet up with after we debarked the cruise ship. I did not realize this was more of a tour rather than getting us to the beach. We really wanted at least an hour at both beaches however we got only half hour at Orient beach because we had to run to Maho to catch the big airplane coming in. We had more time at Maho but beach was crowded. We did have a nice lunch and tour guide was available to leave when we wanted.

  • We had a blast! There was 12 family members on this trip our driver was Ricky he was outstanding. I highly recommend this tour! Thanks Ricky!!! and thanks for the rum punch that put me too bed early that day.
