Full description
Enjoy a 4.5-hour circular tour of the French and Dutch sides of St. Maarten (St.Martin), and experience a true Caribbean welcome. You will drive northeast to Dawn Beach and Oyster Bay, crossing one of the symbolic borders before stopping at Corilita Natural Reserve for breathtaking views of the tropical wilderness.

Continue to the viewpoint overlooking Orient Beach. Then, relax on one of the most serene beaches at Grand Case. Stroll along a pure white shore, or swim in the turquoise waters. Grand Case is the Caribbean’s gourmet capital, and you’ll find a diverse selection of local cuisine for lunch. Try some scrumptious Johnny Cake - a fried cornmeal pancake - or other traditional dishes.

Now it’s time to shop in Marigot, the charming capital of St. Martin, where a lovely French atmosphere unfurls along colonial streets and the open-air bazaar. Next, explore the upscale area of Lowland, crossing another border back to the Dutch side to reach Maho Beach. Watch as the jumbo jets fly low over the sand to land at Princess Juliana International Airport.

Your tour ends with a drive past Simpson Bay, stopping at Cole Bay Hill for one last picturesque view. If you wish, you can be dropped off in Philipsburg to explore on your own, instead of returning to the port.
